Guam Chicken

For grilling season, I have the perfect easy and crowd-pleasing recipe. This recipe was introduced to me by my step-sister years ago when we took a family vacation to Yellowstone. She calls it Guam chicken because they made it while living in Guam. I’ve made a couple of changes to paleo-ify the recipe. 

Paleo Guam Chicken

This recipe was introduced to me by my step-sister who lived in Guam for several years. I've made tweaks to it to paleo-ify it. It's such an easy recipe and you won't be disappointed.
