Don Pedro Chicken Recipe

As promised, here's the recipe for Don Pedro Chicken. We served this at the Star Wars birthday party. Unfortunately, I didn't get a chance to take a close up picture of the chicken. My aunt however, snapped a shot of the table and I figured this was better than nothing. You'll also notice on the table there's the Chinese cabbage salad and the spam musubi. See, I give you all my best recipes. There's also a fabulous crab macaroni salad on the table which I'll save for another time. But until then, here's the Don Pedro recipe. Enjoy.

Spam musubi is a fave; my husband is a haole (from TX of all places) and it's his favorite, too!
