For dinner to accompany Lilo and Stitch, we had our own little luau with our friend, John!
For dinner, we had Luau Chicken with Peanut Sauce, Hawaiian Coconut Rice, Pudge's Peanut Sandwich, Ohana Colada Cocktail, and Mini Pineapple Upside Down Cakes.
I got the recipe here for chicken satay but I changed it to fit our kitchen better. (We didn't really want to grill in January.)
2 chicken breasts, cut into cubes
1/2 cup of coconut milk
2 teaspoons of ground coriander
1 teaspoon of turmeric powder
1/2 teaspoon of ground ginger
2 teaspoons of soy sauce
1 clove of minced garlic
A sprinkle of red pepper flakes
1/2 teaspoon of salt
1. In a bowl, mix together coconut milk, coriander, turmeric, ginger, soy sauce, garlic, red pepper flakes, and salt.
2. Once mixed together, add chicken. Cover and let marinate for at least an hour.
3. Once chicken is done marinating, cook in a large skillet until chicken is cooked.
The peanut sauce we just bought from the store. Yum!!
Hawaiian Coconut Rice
I found this recipe and it was SOO easy!
2 cups of white rice
1 cup of coconut milk
2 cups of water
1/2 teaspoon of salt
3 tablespoons of shredded coconut
Put all ingredients in the rice cooker and set to cook. Once done, serve warm.
Pudge's Peanut Butter Sandwich
Just a regular peanut butter sandwich
I found the idea for this drink here. There were no amounts so we got creative and added our own.
2 parts Mango Malibu Rum
4 parts Blue Curacao
1 part Pineapple Juice
2 gummy worms
My (pregnant lady) version was Pineapple juice and Pina Colada mix with a pineapple and cherry garnish.
Mini Pineapple Upside Down Cakes
I found this recipe here!
2/3 cup of white sugar
4 Tablespoons of pineapple juice
2/3 cup of flour
1 teaspoon of baking powder
1/4 teaspoon of salt
1/4 cup of butter
2/3 cup of brown sugar
1 can of pineapple rings
12 maraschino cherries
1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees and spray your muffin tin with cooking spray.
2. In a mixing bowl, combine eggs, white sugar, pineapple juice, flour, baking powder, and salt. Stir for 2 minutes.
3. In a sauce pan, melt the butter and stir in the brown sugar. Stir on low for a minute to combine.
4. Once a syrup is created, spoon a small layer into the bottom of each cupcake.
5. Place a pineapple ring on top of the syrup (you will have to cut this to fit).
6. Place a cherry in the center.
7. Pour cake mix into each cupcake pan about 3/4 full. *you might be able to see the top of the cherries and that's ok!
8. Bake for 23 minutes.
9. Remove from oven and let cool in the pan for about five minutes.
10. Pry each cake out with a knife and flip over to serve.
This was one of the most cohesive dinners we've had to date! It was so good!!
And just because we have one, here's a little pic from our Disney World Vacation which was almost three years ago to the day!
