Happy New Year! I know everyone is happy 2020 is behind us and Season 14 of Cooking Hawaiian Style is here! We are excited to kick off a brand new season with the multi-talented singer-songwriter Kuana Torres. We had Kuana in our kitchen 7 seasons ago and thought it was about time to bring him back. His mana’o on Hawaiian culture and cuisine makes for an extra special episode. In addition to singing, Kuana spends much of his time on-line these days conducting hula workshops and lei making classes, this pandemic has not slowed him down a bit as he continues to be quite busy. This week Kuana shares his Chicken Lūʻau recipe. Enjoy!
(Pressure Cooker Recommended) **
Boil leaf down until soft (4 to 5 hrs). Remove from pot and into strainer. Drain well. In a separate pot, boil chicken for 30 to 35 minutes or until soft. Remove from pot, cool, shred and set aside. Heat stove to medium/low setting and add lūʻau leaf back into pot. Stir in coconut milk.
Keep a constant stir so that burning does not occur (20 minutes). Add shredded chicken and stir (5 minutes). Turn stove off. Add salt to taste. Finished
