Huli Huli Chicken

How good does this look?! Continuing our journey of easy weekday recipes, I present to you: HULI HULI CHICKEN!

My sister in law shared her awesome meal prep idea with us and we have been trying it out. She buys 3 pounds of chicken breast at Costco, then cuts them all up in one day. She pre-portions them in ziplocks, and freezes them. Each ziplock bag is portioned for two people. When she wants to use the chicken, she defrosts it (you can stick it in the fridge the night before) and makes a sauce to go with it. She has a few sauces in her arsenal that she’s shared with us - they are easy, delicious and QUICK! This specific post is how to make Huli Huli chicken. Enjoy!

How to make the sauce:
3/4 cup ketchup
1/3 cup soy sauce
3 TBSP packed brown sugar
3 TBSP lime juice
1 TBSP grated ginger
4 cloves of garlic

How to cook the chicken:
In a skillet, cook diced chicken in pan with some oil until browned. Stir in sauce and cook together for 20 minutes. Serve over rice or egg noodles!

If you want to cut down on calories, you could use less brown sugar. We also used a little more lime. This sauce was great! We will definitely be using the chicken prep method going forward. It kinda sucks having to cut all the chicken at once, but it saves you so much time during the week. Hope you guys enjoyed!! xo
