This Hawai’i favorite is bound to become a favorite in your family. The delicious sweetness of the marinade and the tender chicken will make even a toothless baby eat until they are near to bursting.

Don’t actually let a baby eat until bursting.

Superhero Tip: Surprise everyone by saying this recipe’s name correctly. Shoy rhymes with boy, then add the u (you).

Second Superhero Tip: This dish is traditionally served over sticky rice. Thai and Japanese rice is usually available in the grocery store, or look for a calrose variety.
