Disney Themed Dinner at Home

This past weekend was my last at home before returning to work from maternity leave. In order to make it a special and memorable one, my husband and I cooked up a Disney themed dinner from the comfort of our home and it was delicious! Ohana is my favorite restaurant on property and that's what inspired our menu!

For dinner and dessert, we enjoyed:
  • Ohana Marinated Chicken
  • Pot Stickers
  • Fried Rice
  • Grilled Pineapple
  • Ooey Gooey Toffee Cake (recipe from Liberty Tree Tavern in the Magic Kingdom)
Keep reading below for the marinated chicken recipe, inspired by Ohana at the Polynesian! 


This dinner was so delicious, we'll definitely make it again! 


I had no clue you could purchase pre-made pot stickers from the grocery store! Watch out...I'm in trouble now!


Since we had a pineapple in the fridge from our recent Bountiful Baskets order, we decided to cut it and toss it on the grill, too! 


Dessert was made from a recipe I've shared here on the blog in the past - it's called Ooey Gooey Toffee Cake and is straight from the Liberty Tree Tavern lunch menu. Add a little Blue Bell ice cream and caramel sauce and you're in heaven! Y'all...although this stuff is incredibly unhealthy, it's SO amazing!


 As for the Ohana marinated chicken, this was our first time to have it and we were unsure of what to expect! It was really good and we will definitely make it again! 

Ohana Marinated Chicken
Adapted from: Clover and Thyme

Ingredients:
  • 1 tbl. garlic, minced
  • 1/8 cup malt vinegar
  • 1/8 cup lemon juice
  • 2 dashes tabasco
  • 1 teaspoon of Cajun seasoning (this was my twist to the recipe - you could do 1/2 tsp of salt and 1/4 tsp of pepper if you'd rather that instead)
  • 1/8 cup light brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup extra virgin olive oil
  • 4-5 chicken breasts
Directions:

Combine all ingredients except olive oil in a blender/magic bullet and blend until mixed well.
Slowly add olive oil and continue to blend.
Thaw chicken breasts and punch holes in meat with a fork.
Place chicken in a bowl.
Pour marinade on top of chicken to coat.
Cover and cool in fridge for 12-24 hours to marinate.
Grill/cook as desired.
Serve and enjoy!


Blending away!


Ready to chill in the fridge!


Post-grilled yummy goodness!

That's all there is to it! If you try this recipe, I hope you enjoy!! :) Have a great day!

Have you ever attempted a Disney recipe at home? If so, what did you make?

  1. Oh yes, Potstickers. I get them every so often to mix things up, and I only use half of the bag each time. One bag means two dinners on different weeks. They're so easy to make :)
