1. In a bowl, whisk together soy sauce, pineapple juice, ketchup, brown sugar, rice vinegar, minced garlic, grated ginger, sesame oil, and black pepper to create the marinade.

2. Place the chicken thighs or breasts in a resealable plastic bag or a shallow dish. Pour the marinade over the chicken, ensuring it is evenly coated. Marinate in the refrigerator for at least 2 hours, or preferably overnight, to allow the flavors to meld.

3. Preheat your oven to 375°F (190°C). Grease a baking dish or line it with parchment paper for easy cleanup.

4. Remove the chicken from the marinade, reserving the marinade for basting.

5. Place the chicken pieces in the prepared baking dish, arranging them in a single layer.

6. Bake the chicken in the preheated oven for 25-30 minutes, depending on the thickness of the chicken pieces, or until they are cooked through, flipping them halfway through the cooking time.

7. While the chicken is baking, pour the reserved marinade into a saucepan. Bring it to a boil over medium heat, then reduce the heat and let it simmer for 10-15 minutes, or until it thickens into a glaze-like consistency. Stir occasionally to prevent burning.

8. During the last 10 minutes of baking, baste the chicken with the thickened marinade every few minutes, ensuring a glossy and flavorful coating.

9. Once the chicken is cooked through and the glaze is caramelized, remove it from the oven.

10. Let the Baked Huli Huli Chicken rest for a few minutes before serving to allow the juices to redistribute.

11. Garnish with sliced green onions and sesame seeds for an extra touch of freshness and crunch.

12. Serve your Baked Huli Huli Chicken hot alongside steamed rice or grilled pineapple for a complete Hawaiian-inspired meal.
