This recipe is an island favorite and can be eaten as a meal or as an appetizer. I love the "bite" from the green onions and cilantro. Cut the chopping time by adding the sauce ingredients to a blender or food processor and use deboned chicken cut into pieces if you cannot chop through the bone.

I was looking for something on the cool side to have for dinner tonight. I've only had this in restaurants and thought I'd give it a try. Other than using boneless, skinless chicken I followed the easy to follow instructions exactly as written. Hehehe, I won't have to get this from the restaurant anymore as I will be making it again ... using whole chicken! Mahalo!
