At a glance
Chile Oil/Chile Paste
1 (3 1/2-pound) chicken
Split the chicken down the backbone, removing backbone but leaving the halves attached at the breast.
Roast the chicken over medium-high direct heat, turning and marinating often, for about 1 hour or to an internal thigh temperature of 175° F.
In Hawaiian, huli-huli means to turn over and over. This version of the roadside favorite uses a homemadehuli-style sauce instead of the patented commercial version. This recipe requires advance preparation. (Hulisauce may also be used as a glaze for hamburgers and fish.)
