This Instant Pot Huli Huli Hawaiian Chicken is one of my favorite recipes. The chicken is so tender, juicy and the has just the right amount of salty and sweet. It brings my mind straight back to the time I spent in Hawaii this year and just how delicious the food was. Hawaii was truly a magical trip, from the food to the incredible beauty of the island. This dish is just as delicious as the incredible Hawaiin recipes I was treated too.
