According to NationalDayCalendar.com, today, June 2nd is National Rotisserie Chicken Day.
National Rotisserie Chicken Day is celebrated annually on June 2nd.
Rotisserie chicken is cooked whole on a rotisserie or spit that turns it continuously while a heat source cooks it slowly. This type of cooking sears the skin to seal in the flavor, resulting in a tender and juicy chicken. Rotisserie chicken is often injected with a blend of seasonings to give it even more flavor. The popularity of rotisserie chicken continues to grow as the health benefits of it become more widely known. Leftovers can be used in many ways, including salads, sandwiches and casseroles.

In light of that, The Tasty Island Honolulu Food Blog also hereby proclaims June 2nd, Hawaii State Huli-Huli Chicken Day. Yay!
“Today, June 2nd, kama’aina celebrate Hawaii State Huli-Huli Chicken Day.
Huli-Huli Chicken is Hawaii’s take on Rotisserie Chicken, whereas however the seasonings and cooking method are quite different, being the chicken is typically marinaded in a shoyu-based brine, then grilled on a special rotisserie that’s fueled by incredibly hot Kiawe wood, a.k.a. Mesquite, resulting in the whole rotisserie chickens turning out incredibly moist and tender, with a wonderful smokey aroma and flavor.
Huli-Huli Chickens are often sold for fundraising events by churches and sports teams. And chances are if you take a drive around the island, you’ll come across hot, just-cooked Huli-Huli Chicken for sale on the roadside.
The name “Huli-huli” is has actually trademarked by Pacific Poultry since 1967, and can’t be used for commercial use. However most locals still refer to any chicken prepared and cooked this way in the islands as “Huli-Huli Chicken”. Ono stuff!”
