    You may not have heard of traditional chicken keleguin (kelaguen), but it needs to be on your radar. It is a dish that originates from the Mariana Islands in the South Pacific. It has a unique preparation method that makes it stand apart in ways besides its amazing flavors. The keleguin cooking method lets the acids in the marinade cook the meat in place of heat. It’s served cold or at room temperature and eaten over rice. This a unique dish worth trying.

    Health Benefits

    One of the more interesting ingredients in this dish are the crushed red pepper flakes. These wonderful spicy ingredients have been in use for a long time, not only for their taste but for their health benefits. Red pepper flakes are full of capsaicin, an active ingredient that is capable of preventing and treating cancer by reducing oxidative stress and neutralizing free radicals.It can also regulate weight loss, diabetes, and even serve as a headache cure.
