A Chamorro favorite, especially at fiestas and barbeques!! Similar to a tangy grilled chicken salad; but with no mayo.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Prepare the bbq grill, either gas or charcoal. Lightly salt the split chicken. Grill the chicken until just done; do not overcook! Set aside to cool completely. Debone the chicken and then chop coarsely.
  2. Combine the rest of the ingredients in a large bowl and mix thoroughly. Adjust lemon juice and salt according to your taste. This can be eaten right away with warm corn tortillas. This dish is typically served as a side dish at chamorro fiestas and barbeques.
  3. The traditional way adds fresh shredded coconut (NOT the baking kind). I prefer not to add it just for personal taste.
