Easy Grilled Chicken with Hawaiian Salt

This is an Island favorite that my family has enjoyed for years now. There is no mistaking the unique flavor that Hawaiian salt adds to grilled chicken. It tenderizes and brings out the natural flavors of the chicken. The more you chew, the more flavor is emitted.

The awesome thing about Hawaiian salt is that it doesn't give your palate that biting salty taste that table salt does - and it is difficult to over-salt your chicken when using Hawaiian salt. Not to worry if you can't find Hawaiian salt, you can use any edible rock salt.

The nice thing about this easy grilled chicken recipe is that you don't have to marinate overnight, and the ingredients are easy to pack and take to the beach or picnic. Whenever I find myself headed towards an unplanned barbeque, this easy grilled chicken with Hawaiian salt is my 'go-to' recipe.



  • 10lbs Chicken Thighs, Kawi's kitchen uses boneless/skinless
  • 1/8 Cup Hawaiian Salt, Or similar rock salt - never table salt
  • Tblspn or more Garlic, Minced
  • To taste Pepper
  • Olive Oil, Just enough to coat chicken
  • To taste Your favorite spice, As long as it has no salt

Grill size may affect cook time.

Prep time: 15 min
Cook time: 1 hour
Ready in: 1 hour 15 min
Yields: Serves 10 people, or 4 Polynesian kids.

Quick and Easy Preperations

  1. Defrost and pat dry chicken with paper towels. Place in flat pan and drizzle olive oil to coat chicken. Add Hawaiian salt and lomi (massage) salt throughout all chicken pieces.
  2. Add garlic and continue to lomi into chicken. This process is very fast, and shouldn't take up too much time.
  3. A sprinkle of pepper should top off your chicken pieces, and you are ready for the grill.
  4. Place onto hot grill, and cook as normal. Having a meat thermometer will cut the guessing game if you are not used to grilling chicken - it's always better safe than sorry.
  5. The beauty of grilling is that you can get to do the taste test. If you can't taste the Hawaiian salt, you can still sprinkle on a bit while you're grilling to get that unique flavor.
  6. You'll know when you've got the right mix, if you have a low tolerance for salt, always use less, you can add more on the grill later.
