Easy Grilled Chicken With Sweet Marinade – Huli Huli Chicken

Although I LOVE all kinds of smoked and grilled meats, I try and eat them in moderation. If you are trying to eat a little healthier, maybe try this delicious grilled chicken with a sweet marinade. It is quick, pretty healthy, and everyone will love it!

It is also perfect if you are serving a large group of people in your backyard barbecue because you can made it in a matter of minutes!
