Ingredients

  • 1 1/2 lbs of boneless skinless chicken thighs
  • About 8-10 fresh pandan/screwpine leaves - cut into about 6-inch length pieces if frozen, just thaw before use
  • 25-30 pieces of toothpicks
  • Oil for deep frying

Marinade:

Instructions

  • Cut the chicken into about 3-inch cubes. Place in a large bowl and add in all the ingredients for marinade, cover and pop into the refrigerator to let it marinade for at least 1 hour. Meanwhile, you can prepare the pandan leaves by cutting them into about 6-inch pieces
  • When ready to wrap, take one pandan leave and place one piece of marinated chicken meat and wrap the leave around the chicken and secure with one toothpick. Repeat with the rest of the chicken
  • Preheat oil in a large frying pan. When you throw in a cube of bread and it browns, the oil is ready. Add in the chicken (I recommend frying in batches) and fry until golden brown and place on absorbent paper towel. Serve immediately and unwrap the magic inside ;)
