Chicken kelaguen is a local dish that is very popular in my hometown island of Guam. It makes a great side dish and is delicious when served on a toasted corn tortilla. This recipe uses a boneless chicken breast for ease of preparation. (Using a whole chicken that has been grilled over a wood fire provides the best flavor.)
1 Chicken Breast
2 or 3 Lemons
1 Small Onion
1/4 Cup Chopped Green Onions
1/2 tsp Salt
1 Cup Grated Coconut
2 tsp Chopped Hot Red Peppers
