Chicken Pandan

I’ve finally tried making chicken pandan (chicken tenders wrapped in pandan leaves and fried), I did it yesterday. I searched for a recipe online and found one here. I’ve always thought that chicken pandan is a Filipino dish but it turned out it’s Thai and Malaysian in origin.

I got everything the recipe needs and made sure I followed the recipe to the letter because it’s my first time to do it, I was tempted to add more than what is asked while I was measuring the marinade ingredients, I thought it wouldn’t be enough for the chicken pieces but I was wrong, it was just right. No leftover marinade to throw away.

The only “hard” part is the wrapping of the chicken, the pandan leaves I bought was narrow, it took me quite a while to cover the chicken pieces, whew. I have leftover pandan leaves I put some with the rice I was cooking.

The chicken tastes really good, I didn’t taste much of the pandan though, I don’t think I bought good pandan leaves, they’re not aromatic enough, even the ones I put in the rice didn’t release that fragrant sweet smell I was expecting. I rarely use pandan in cooking so I don’t know what to look for when buying, I just picked up one from the veggie aisle.
