I totally stole this recipe from my friend at The Polynesian Kitchen to
use at Raini's First Birthday Luau party... and it ROCKED!
Many thanks to them. They've got awesome recipes over there-
This is Asian/Island-flavored BBQ chicken.
Perfectly polynesian but super mild and delish.
4 cups soy sauce
1 cup water
3 cups sugar
2 teaspoons sesame oil
3 tablespoons minced garlic
3 tablespoons minced ginger
2-3 lbs chicken parts
(**I've also made it adding a few slices of oranges
for acidity and extra sweetness)
1.Mix together all ingredients except chicken.
2.Stir in marinade until sugar is dissolved.
Add chicken to marinade and refrigerate for several hours or overnight.
3.Flip chicken around every so often while marinating.
4.Barbecue on grill (or bake in the oven at 375 for 45
to an hour depending on how big the chicken parts are.)
