Pandan Chicken

Delightful, easy to prepare and chicken! Okay, so the last one doesn’t quite fit the group, but I just love chicken. And I’m happy I found (Rasa Malaysia) this Pandan Chicken recipe.



  • Pandan leaves
  • 2 pieces skinless chicken breast fillet (cut into 2 in. x 1 in. cubes)
  • 1/8 teaspoon sesame seeds
  • 1 teaspoon soy sauce
  • 1/2 teaspoon oyster sauce
  • 1/8 teaspoon sesame oil
  • 3 dashes white pepper powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon sugar
  • 1/8 teaspoon fish sauce
  • 3 inches fresh ginger (grated and squeezed for juice)

I did some alterations depending on what ingredients I have available. I used thigh fillet (tastier), I didn’t have sesame seeds (which is fine, I just don’t like how they go in between your teeth). Buy your Pandan (also called Screwpine, I didn’t know that) fresh. It looses its aroma after a few days of storage.

  1. Mix the chicken with all the seasonings
  2. Add the ginger juice and marinate for 1 hour
  3. Put a piece of the chicken at the end of the pandan leaf and roll it up tightly
  4. Hold tight with a tooth pick
  5. Deep fry until golden brown

I suggest cutting the Pandan leaves at about 5-6 inches length making it easier to use as a wrapper. It’s also less effort to take out once you’re at the best part, eating! Enjoy!
