Filipino Pandan Chicken (1 of 1)

Roasted Chicken is a delicious chicken dish. It has been a common way of preparing whole chicken because the process is easy and it produces a good result. Roasted chicken can be eaten with salad, bread, and even rice. However, some of us might have had too much of the classic roasted chicken to the point that it does not taste appealing to our taste buds anymore. It’s not about the taste or quality of the chicken, but rather the countless times that we had the same thing – may be because it is easy to prepare, accessible, and fits our budget. I think that rotisserie chicken and the ones that come prepackaged in the deli shop or supermarkets fall in the same category as classic roast chicken. I think that we need to reset our taste buds by having a different version or roasted chicken. This Filipino Roasted Chicken Pandan recipe can help

Filipino Pandan Chicken Recipe (1 of 1)

I like Filipino Roasted Chicken Pandan because it has a great aroma and tastes really nice too. The meat is tender and juicy, just like any other roasted chicken. What I like best is that the taste reminds me a lot of being Filipino. I only eat this with rice along with a dip if either toyomansi (soy sauce and calamansi or lemon) or lechon sauce. I think that this is the type of simple roasted chicken that I always wanted.

Tandoori Chicken Recipe

Tandoori Chicken or Chicken Tandoori is a famous Indian chicken dish. Skinned chicken slices are marinated in yogurt and several spices for long hours before being grilled or roasted.

This dish is not complicated to make, as long you have the necessary ingredients on hand. All you need to do is marinade the chicken until the flavors are completely absorbed, then grill or roast it. The procedure is the same as making grilled chicken (inihaw na manok) or Chicken Inasal, with totally different seasoning and spices.

Roasted Chicken Recipe

How about an easy yet tasty chicken dinner recipe? You are in luck because I prepared a simple roasted chicken dish just for you. Although this recipe is simple, it doesn’t mean that the taste is simple too. This tastes better that the ordinary rotisserie chicken, I guarantee.

The thing that I like most about this dish other than the taste is the texture. I believe that the stuffing did a great job in providing moisture to the chicken. If you’ve been to Boston Market and tried their chicken, that pretty much is the texture that I’m talking about – tender and juicy.

I had this with some homemade mashed potatoes and it was a blast. If you wish to enjoy this better, making your own KFC style gravy will do the trick.
