I was stationed in Guam almost 20 years ago and have thought about keleguin a number of times, and now thanks to Al Gore I have the internet(ha ha). Anyway the locals would use Keleguin on chicken, deer, beef, and lobster. Its an excellent flavor.
I wanted to like this dish, but I must have done something wrong. I used a young coconut because that's all they had at the store, and the coconut flavor was overpowered by the lemons. I think my cooking ability ends at preparing fresh coconut!
Delicious! I made this with chicken breast once and a rotisserie chicken another time. Both were great. We ate it over coconut rice, but it can be eaten cold as a chicken salad or warm.
This recipe is traditional chicken keleguen from the island of Guam. please try it, I promise you will love it!!!
I've lived on Guam my whole life and this is definitely a traditional dish made as is, and of course delicious. Now living California, it can be difficult to get a fresh coconut, not to mention the fact that I don't have the old school coconut grater my mom used, thus making it a chore to grate a fresh coconut. Of course you must use a FRESH coconut to get that wonderful authentic flavor. I usually make this dish for my husband without the coconut, store-bought whole roasted chicken(to save time), and with minced scallions OR chives. Sometimes I chop fresh baby spinach and add to the dish to give more color and nutrition. I absolutely LOVE kelaguen.. whether it's beef, deer, fish, or EVEN SPAM. Yes, I said spam. Man, I miss home...
A small flexible knife will do wonders for getting the meat out of the coconut's curved shell. Thought the ingredients looked like an odd mix, but i was in the mood to be adventurous. The recipe was delicious. Really interesting mix of flavors, and the coconut added a wonderful crunch. I'll probably make it again, but it may take me a while to work up the nerve to deal with a coconut again.
Great rolled in a warm tortilla!
Had a coconut and tried this recipe out. Delicious. Entire family enjoyed it. Definitely a keeper.
