What do you do when you have pandan leaves? the first thing that came to my mind was, pandan chicken! it's amazing that we use these leaves for so many things. to name a few, rose syrup for for a cooling soothing drink to bunga rampai, or malay 'pot pourri', slicing them very very thinly and adding them with rose petals and some other flowes at malay weddings.
This was what i did last week. my first try. i wasnt quite sure of what to marinade the chicken with, and so i marinade it with just the things i had in the kitchen. turned out o-k, not great, far from sedap corner, jb, or cozyhouse, kl but it still made my day having had done this myself and my husband simply cant quite get his hands off it.
Chicken Breasts (cut into thick chunks)
2 tbsp Oyster Sauce
3 tbsp Light Soy Sauce
2 tbsp Honey
1/3 cup Coconut milk
1. 4 Cloves of Garlic
2. 3 Shallots
3. 1/2 inch - 1 inch Ginger
4. 2 Lemongrass
5. 2 Red Chillies
1. Blend and marinade chicken together with all other ingredients for at least 1 hour
2. Wrap one piece of chicken one at a time and secure it with a toothpick
3. Fry them in hot oil for about a good 8-10 mins
4. Put it in the oven for another 5 mins on 180c (optional)
Anyone knows how i can improve mine?
