Chicken Kelaguen. It’s a yummy island-styled dish made with bar-b-que, baked, or rotisserie chicken, grated coconut, lemon juice, green and white onions, and hot chili peppers. This dish is eaten in the homes of many an islander, or someone who has been cultured in Pacific Island fare.

If you didn’t already know, Chicken Kelaguen is invariably Guam’s most popular fiesta dish, bar none. Ask any local, or for that matter any transplant who has lived in the islands long enough and they certainly identify Chicken Kelaguen one of their top fiesta fixings.

While making kelaguen is a fairly simple process, the steps to make it can be onerous to say the least. Not so with a Kelaguen-Made-Easy Measurement Mug. This useful kitchen tool will allow you to prepare kelaguen the same way each and every time. The beauty of such a tool is that you can also have other folks in the family prepare a batch for you, and it will taste the same every time. Using a pre-tested portion of ingredients, we’ve taken the burden away from you, and made every effort to create a great-tasting kelaguen dish that you can duplicate any time.

Our recipe uses the traditional ingredients, and has been kitchen tested many times over with lots of hungry islander stomachs to attest to its great flavors.

How it works:

Step 1: In a separate large mixing bowl, prepare two pounds of deboned bar-b-qued or rotisserie chicken (coarsely chopped), with a generous helping of grated coconut (optional).

Steps 2-5: Follow the mug’s directions adding just the right amount of prepared white and green onions (chopped), lemon or lime juice (seeds removed), and hot peppers (whole or chopped).

Next, add salt to taste, and pour the ingredients into your bowl of chopped chicken and grated coconut, then mix well (don’t over mix), and cover and let sit in the refrigerator to let the juices mix. After a few hours, serve. It’s that easy.

You’ll never have to ask whether your kelaguen tasted the same, because with this Kelaguen-Made-Easy Measuring Mug, it will taste the same every time, and those at your table will rave about how it tastes.

Seeing Success in Shipping Guam Gifts and Products Across the US

You’ve heard the saying. When deciding on a business, follow your passion for the work will seem like play.

This is so true. Designing has always been a passion that I’ve had since I can remember. The spark however, was more recent. Glancing at an illustration at a hotel I stayed in earlier this year provided that inspiration.

With the creative juices in me I went to task creating my first illustration with the intent to market it online at Gerard Aflague Collection and at events. Doing my homework I hunted down my suppliers to assist me in my endeavor. That was in March. It’s now December.

In that time, I wrestled with what my niche would be. I think I’ve settled in the Pacific Island market, more specifically the Marianas. That’s because that is what I know well. In addition, this is a market that is not being served well. Looking back, I realized that there isn’t much online that is being offered to folks that are from the Pacific Islands. The rest is history. That is for now.

With many illustrations created, and hundreds sold at events and online, we’ve expanded into so many other products – aprons, dining ware, kitchen ware, bags, plaques, and more. Much of this broadening was just trial and error, understanding what could be unique was more of the challenge. Today we offer many other things besides illustrations, and have created many other things that have been asked for by our clientele. I’ve become indebted to the hundreds of folks who have come to trust what I do to be able to create something that they would appreciate. Reminders of culture is powerful, it creates feelings of belonging and a sense of identity. This is what I try to do in the products that I create.

Home and office decor, with a Guam/CNMI and island flavor is the focus on my line. With the hundreds of ordersĀ  fulfilled to date, I can see success ahead as I continue to identify products that folks might enjoy. Over the next several months even more exciting things are coming down the pipe, as new technologies are being introduced to make some product development a reality. I’ll save this for a later post.

Below I share the many places across the world where my designs and products have shipped. I’d love to hear your perspective and comments, share it below!
