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…
