Grilled Pandan Chicken Wings

It wasn’t until recent years that I could get my hands on fresh pandan leaves. I had been wanting them for a long time before that. And things like pandan essence (in a bottle) just didn’t work out in  recipes.

There is a little bit of monkeying around to tie them around the wings. So they don’t make for the greatest photos. The  wing tips did not go inside and by default are dark. But who eats wing tips anyway?

What are pandan leaves?

Pandan leaves are the long spearlike leaves from the screwpine plant. They are valued for their aroma, used in cooking.

Many times that is for desserts, but today we are using it on chicken. It imparts a grassy herbal aroma to the chicken with a light floral note. Not anything like rosewater. More like the aromas from jasmine or basmati rice.

Combined with the ingredients in the marinade, it makes for a very flavorful experience.
