Fried Chicken Barbecue in Pandan Leaves

Ok, this is not a chicken barbecue recipe, maybe partly. It's more like a cross between a chicken barbecue and a fried chicken. It's like you're ultimately planning chicken barbecue for dinner marinating the chicken ahead but instead of hitting the grill after, you decided to have fried chicken instead. And don't forget to use pandan leaves. A pandan leaf makes all the difference.

BTW, i got mine from my mother's backyard. You can get yours from your local grocery store or public market, or if you're lucky, from your neighbor. :)

This Fried Chicken Barbecue is my favorite to bring for picnics in the beach. We all know grilled stuff is best while eating by the seaside but when grilling is not possible, this Fried Chicken Barbecue is the next best thing. It's fried but the pandan leaf keeps the chicken moist and gives our Fried Chicken a nice aroma. Plus you can have half of the chicken wings, the exposed part, the one not covered in pandan leaves, to be crisp. The taste? Well, i'll let you be the judge. :)

1. In an airtight container, mix soy sauce, fish sauce, oyster sauce, sugar, ginger, garlic, calamansi and pepper. Marinate chicken. Keep in the fridge overnight.

2. Wrap half of the chicken wings, the meaty part, in pandan leaves. Follow images A-C if you need guidance in wrapping.

A. Wrap in pandan leaves placing the hard end of the leaf in between two rolls.
B. Insert the pointy end of the leaf to secure.
C. Fold the hard end towards the other side and insert/hide it in between two rolls, to secure.
3. Heat oil and fry each side of chicken until brown.

4. Serve your fried chicken barbecue hot with your favorite barbecue sawsawan. Mine is soy sauce with calamansi and lots of chili. Enjoy!
