Polynesian Foil Wrapped Chicken

Polynesian foil wrapped chicken is one of the foods that brings culture together. From sausage and gravy called bangers and mash to  a sweet coconut Panipopo which is Samoan. Treat your guests to a unique appetizer when you serve these Polynesian foil wrapped chicken packs. Steamed with fragrant herbs and asian flavors for a truly authentic fare. This recipe came from the Coral Reef Restaurant that was in Sacramento CA. It was my favorite place to eat as a child. Even though they are no longer around I still enjoy eating the Polynesian foil wrapped chicken at home.

Instructions
 

  • Cut chicken breasts into 1/8-inch cubes, scallions and set aside.

    I have searched the world over for this receipt. I too, as a child, ate at the Coral Reef in Sacramento. I was so thankful I found this. And I’m very thankful you posted it. Thank you for a piece of my childhood…
