Pandan Chicken (Screwpine leave Chicken) is one of my family favourites. They love this dish to bits and can't resist the temptation of taking few bites whenever we stumbled upon this irresistible dish. Pandan chicken is basically marinated chicken wrapped with screwpine leave and deep fry. It creates a kind of juicy and crispy chicken texture with the aromatic screwpine flavour.
Since we love them to bits, thus it inspired me to cook it at home. But, I would like to make it healthier by baking it instead of deep frying. Without wasting much time, I grabbed a pair of scissor and snipped off some of the screwpine leaves which I have planted long time ago. It is good to have them in hand whenever we needed them. Screwpine grows easily in Asia and can be found at most of the household as it is one of the familiar ingredients used in Asian cooking. It is such a versatile plant which can be use in various type of recipes such as dessert, cakes, pudding, jelly, drinks, muffins, steamed bun, cookies, bread and many more. Apart from using them in your cooking, it is believe that drinking boiled screwpine juice frequently can reduce gout symptoms. (read more from this website).
