Hawaiian Chicken Stir-fry Recipe: All That's Missing Is a Tropical Drink

I started to try a recipe tonight for huli huli chickenhuli huli is Hawaiian for “turn turn” – and then realized it was intended for the grill. That wasn’t happening tonight. What to do?

I adapted it and added some pineapple and onion for extra flavor, and turned it into a stovetop chicken recipe. Yum! Serve over rice, or whatever you like, for dinner. I opted for couscous I had leftover in the refrigerator. If you feel so inclined, maybe a piña colada, too?

Cuisine: American
Prep Time: 20 minutes, plus 4 to 8 hours of marinating
Cook Time: 20 minutes
Total Time: 40 minutes (plus marinating)

Servings: 4


Here’s how to make it:

  1. Towel dry the chicken pieces and either pierce with a fork a few times or cut some slits throughout the meat.
  2. Combine the sugar, ketchup, soy sauce, wine, ginger, garlic, pineapple and onion to make the marinade. Pour over chicken in a large bowl. Turn the chicken to coat it well. Cover and chill 4 to 8 hours or overnight.
  3. Heat 1 to 2 tablespoons oil over medium-high heat in large skillet. When hot, use a slotted spoon to drain chicken and pineapple and drop into oil. Discard remaining marinade. (There will likely be extra liquid in the skillet, so just let the chicken mixture cook down until the chicken can brown.) Flip chicken and brown the other side. Make sure meat is done and tender. Serve.

Sounds perfect, Melissa Vickers , almost like a kind of sweet and sour chicken. And there's never a bad time for a tropical drink, LOL!
