Chicken Salad - Kelaguen Guamanian Dish

Recipe bycorina2005

“This is a classic recipe from Guam, and one of my favorites. It is wonderful wrapped in a tortilla, or served with crackers. It is also wonderful by itself. I hope you like this as much as my family does!” -


1 tablespoon salt

1 (3 pound) whole chicken, cut into pieces (BBQ boneless thighs or breasts naked ok grill then cut into 1/4 to 1/8 inch little pieces)

1/2 cup lemon juice (can also add a little lemon powder)

Green onions or/and yellow onions

1 cup grated fresh coconut

1 hot chile pepper, minced

4 servings

"My family is from Guam and this is not kelaguen to me. The chicken should only be barbecued after being marinated in soy sauce, lemon, garlic and onions. After it has been grilled and finely cut, then you flavor it with green onions, salt, lemon, red pepper (i like it spicy) and coconut. I usually cut out the coconut when I make it for myself. This is great if you are watching your weight!"


Sprinkle chicken with salt and place pieces on a broiler pan. Broil for about 10 minutes, turn and broil for another 5 minutes or until chicken is cooked, but still moist.
Bone, and finely chop cooked chicken pieces.
In a medium bowl combine the chicken, lemon juice, coconut, and hot peppers. Chill for at least one hour and serve.
