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.

    Love the aroma of sesame oil and ginger. Such an easy recipe too.

    Maybe I can cook a chicken liver version ? Wonder if it works.

      aww no Chinese grocery shops in Jakarta? You can also substitute with other hard liquor like X.O. or D.O.M … but you can leave out the wine too. The ginger and sesame oil is fragrant on their own!

    I am loving this. What brand of dark soy are you using? We always use mushroom flavored dark soy, but it tends to darken cooking a lot.

      I’m using Tai Hua superior dark soy sauce. My family has been using this brand for ages.
