For the Chicken:

  • 8-10 chicken boneless chicken thighs
  • 1 cup soy sauce
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 1 tbsp minced garlic
  • 1 tbsp minced ginger
  • 1 tsp toasted sesame see oil
  • 1/4 cup toasted sesame seeds

For the Passion Fruit Juice:

  • 6-8 passion fruit, pulp only
  • 8-10 cups water
  • 1/2-1 cup sugar

For the Brasilian Potato Salad:

  • 4 Large Russets potatoes, cooked through and diced
  • 3 carrots, cooked through and diced
  • 2 cups frozen peas
  • 1-2 cups mayonnaise
  • salt and pepper to taste

For the Tropical Salad:

  • 6 cups fresh salad greens
  • 1 cucumber, peeled, chopped
  • 1 bunch green onion, root and tips cut off and rest chopped
  • 1 cup freshly diced papaya (optional)
  • 1 cup freshly chopped Jack fruit (optional)
  • 1 lemon
  • 1/3 cup extra virgin olive oil
  • salt and pepper to taste


  1. For the chicken: Place the boneless thigh pieces in a large resealable plastic bag. You can use any cut of chicken meat, I simply like thigh meat. Add all of the other ingredients to the bag, seal and mix so the marinate completely coats the chicken. Place the chicken in the fridge for an hour before grilling off.
  2. For the passion fruit juice: While the chicken is marinating, prepare the passion fruit juice by adding about 5 cups of water to your blender along with the pulp from 6-8 passion fruit. The sugar needs to be adjust as needed. Blend everything together, strain and adjust water if needed. Chill until ready to enjoy!
  3. For the potato salad: I generally cooked the potatoes and carrots and let them cool completely before assembling, however if you are in a hurry a bag of frozen peas added to the salad really cools it. Combine all of the ingredients for the potato salad in a bowl and gently fold together to combine. Salt and pepper to taste, cover and place in the refrigerator until ready to serve.
  4. To finish the salad: spread the salad greens on a large platter and top with the chopped cucumber, green onions, papaya (optional) and jack fruit (optional). Squeeze the juice of one lemon over the salad and drizzle with salt and pepper to taste.
  5. Serve this delicious meal with chilled passion fruit juice and enjoy!
