Aloha! Hailing from Hawaii, huli huli is a cooking method that involves roasting chicken on a spit and serving with a teriyaki-like sauce. (“Huli” is the Hawaiian word for “turn.” When the spit would turn, the people would shout “huli!”) We're not sending a spit, or shouting Hawaiians, in your box with this meal, but we've got succulent chicken, delicious teriyaki, and sweet pineapple to recreate the huli huli experience. You'll almost hear the waves lapping up on the shore.
