Pandan Chicken is a Thai Style where tender chicken pieces are wrapped and cooked in pandan leaves, usually served with a dipping sauce made out of lightly flavoured soy sauce or fish sauce. Making it here in New Zealand is quite challenging as I never had seen any fresh pandan leaves and the available ones are the frozen ones that are pre-cut.


Units Scale



  • 1/4 cup water
  • 1/4 cup fish sauce
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • juice from half lemon
  • 1 tbsp toasted sesame seeds


  1. In a bowl combine together soy sauce, oyster sauce, chili powder and garlic.
  2. Add the chicken, give it a good mix to coat it evenly then set it aside for 15 minutes.
  3. Get two pieces of pandan leaf then wrap chicken around, place in a skewer securing the pandan leaves. Place two wrapped chicken in one skewer. Do it with the remaining chicken.
  4. Prepare a wok, add oil and place in stove top with high heat. Once oil is hot enough fry chicken pieces for 4 minutes on each side or until cooked. Place cooked chicken in a serving platter.
  5. In a small bowl combine sauce ingredients, mix well then serve with pandan chicken.
