Guamanian Style Chicken on the Grill
This chicken recipe from Guam will create a nice glaze on your chicken that’s out of this world. Because of cooking time chicken usually needs to be cooked with indirect heat to prevent burning. Not with this recipe, the constant dipping allows the chicken to simmer in the marinade and cool enough not to burn using direct heat. For added flavor dip your chicken into the dipping sauce while you eat it. In Guam the dipping sauce is called Finadene. Try some Guamanian Red Rice, a great complement with this recipe.
