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.
