Pandan Chicken Two Ways

Easy Level:

A popular chicken dish of Thai origins, Pandan Chicken is made complete by wrapping the chicken with Pandan leaves… literally. It not only infuses an aroma, but helps keep the chicken moist when cooking, enhancing its texture. Wrapping might take some practice, but once you’ve skilfully mastered this it will be second nature. We personally like wrapping ours with parts of the chicken outside of the leaf so that there’s some crisp on the surface after cooking
We did our recipe two ways, one for those that want the healthier option, which would be to bake the Pandan chicken in the oven, but in our opinion, the fried version produces a much tastier version!
A perfect dish to cook for your weekend evenings, so try out this savoury delight!
