Apologies for being so unresponsive to your comments and the lack of posting. I am on the road for two weeks and will be heading back soon.
However, I wanted to share with you a new summer recipe–pandan chicken or fried chicken wrapped with screwpine leaves. Screwpine leaves or pandan leaves are commonly used in Malaysia to infuse the food or desserts with the sweet and fragrant aroma.
In this pandan chicken recipe, the essence of pandan leaves lend a pleasing flavor to the chicken, especially after these pandan chicken are fried.
Pandan chicken makes a great appetizer or finger food for your party and they are so easy to make.
Just get some pandan leaves, some marinated chicken, toothpicks for the wrapping and you will be in business…

Since it is hard to see when the chicken is golden brown due to the leaves, what time and temperature would you use to deep dry it? I am going to try 10 min at 350.
I ended up doing 8 min. It was the hit of the party.
How do you eat it? With/ without the leaves?
Without the leaves.
I love anything pandan so I want to try this recipe, but is there another method besides deep frying that will work? Would you recommend baking or grilling?
Yes you can bake.
Thanks for the reply. What temperature and cook time do you recommend for baking??
