Chicken Pupus (Hawaiian Appetizer)
- 1/2 cup low sodium soy sauce
- 1/4 cup Worcestershire sauce
- 1/4 cup vegetable oil
- 1/4 cup dark rum
- 1 tablespoon wasabi powder
- Juice of 1 orange
- 1 tablespoon minced fresh ginger

- Whisk together all ingredients, except the chicken, in a mixing bowl. Place the
chicken thighs in the marinade and marinate for 2 to 4 hours in the refrigerator.
After 2 hours, stir the marinade.

marinade and drain or shake off the excess marinade. Place on a lightly oiled grill
and cook for 5 to 7 minutes on each side.
- Continue grilling until the chicken is cooked in the center. Remove the "pupu
chicken" to a serving plate and insert wooden picks in each of the cubes.
