One day, I was walking past my neighbour’s home along the corridor and my paparazzi nose picked up an amazing aroma and I knew what it was instantly – sesame oil chicken (麻油鸡). This makes me crave for this simple childhood dish and I simply couldn’t get the dish out of my head. I asked my mum how she cooked hers last time and she taught me her simple recipe over the phone. When I tried out the dish, my whole house was also filled with the wonderful aroma which I experienced walking past my neighbour’s home. The aroma of the sesame oil and ginger is so familiar and so therapeutic. Best of all, this is a simple dish which is easy to prepare with minimal key ingredients – just chicken, sesame oil and ginger.

    Hi, I’d like to know if I can cook this dish using slow cooker instead? If yes, any idea how to modify?

    hi! i tried this dish today – however, at the step where i’m supposed to add the pre-mixed sauce (A), there was a major splatter, with droplets ranging from 10-20 cents shooting out from the pan. i would like to know if anyone knows why this happened and how to prevent it? thank you so much!
