Turmeric Leaf Wrapped Chicken

I was inspired by Sonia of Nasi Lemak Lover when her insta stories pops up with her using turmeric leaves to wrap her chicken pieces and deep frying them. I knew I had to try it out and being the lazy me, of course I used the oven instead. I wrapped the marinated chicken pieces with four big turmeric leaves from my lil space 🤣. Roasted the parcel  for 40 mins. The aroma from the leaves wafting out of the oven is truly wonderful. Took away the daily depressing news of increasing Covid deaths for a while, we just wanna inhale in the wonderful aroma while we can. Stay safe and eat healthy. 
this is one way to wrap meat and roast them ...turmeric leaves gives a distinctive aroma to the meat as it is roasting in the oven

I used bamboo skewers to hold the leaves together
Oiled the bottom and top leaves before placing the marinated pieces of meat on it,to crisp up the meat further while it is roasting in the oven.

1/2 chicken cut into small pieces
4 large turmeric leaves
Olive oil to grease the leaves

Marinade ingredients
1/2 tbsp Turmeric powder
2 tsp Salt
4 shallots chopped
2 Kaffir lime leaves - sliced thinly
Marinate chicken pieces with marinade ingredients for at least 2 hours. Greased 4 large turmeric leaves with olive oil. Arrange the leaves horizontal and vertical like a cross on roasting rack placed over a tray. Arrange the marinated chicken pieces on the greased leaves. Wrapped the chicken pieces with the leaves using bamboo skewers to hold the leaves together as shown in the pic above. Preheat oven to @200c , roast the wrapped parcel for 40 mins. Serve hot .
