My spin on the classic “Huli-Huli” chicken. And, the best part is that this recipe doesn’t  require firing up the grill. The results are amazing right out of the oven!

Marinade Ingredients

  • 1/3 cup soy sauce
  • 1/4 cup saba
  • 1/4 cup honey
  • 1/3 cup Blackberry Ginger Balsamic
  • 1-2 Tbsp. sesame oil
  • 1-2-more pieces ginger root, crushed
  • 3 cloves garlic, crushed
  • 3 Tablespoons Baklouti Olive Oil
  • Scallions for garnish
  • 4 pounds chicken drumsticks, wings, or cut up whole chicken


  1. Combine all the ingredients above except the scallions in a blender or food processor and process until smooth. Reserve a few tablespoons of marinade. Pour over the chicken and refrigerate for a minimum of 2 hours or overnight.
  2. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. (or prepare a grill for indirect cooking)
  3. Line a large sheet pan with foil and top with a wire rack.
  4. Bake chicken until cooked through and skin is crispy about 45-50 minutes.
  5. About 20 minutes through the process, turn the chicken pieces so that they crisp up evenly.
  6. Brush with additional reserved sauce as they come out of the oven and sprinkle with sliced scallions.
  7. Serve with rice, grain or starch of your choice.
