Sesame Oil Chicken

   

Sesame Oil Chicken Recipe

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.

    Wow that looks really good, almost like store-bought. Drizzle that sauce on top of some rice and top it off with the chicken – perfect meal!

      oh yes, the sauce to me is the good part … I waste not a drop of it for drizzling on my rice or even “drink” on its own :P

    I seldom cook sesame oil dish at home, as it tends to make my kitchen oily. But I love sesame oil dishes, including this. Usually my mom will cook for me when I go over for lunch. :)
    Noticed that you add so little of soy sauce. Was it salty enough?

      yes definitely salty enough for me, and I tend to like salty food. maybe because the recipe did not use a lot of chicken and water :)

    I love anything with sesame oil. You know what I crave for now?…. Pork liver soup with ginger, sesame oil and chinese wine… don’t know why – seeing your dish reminds me of that!

    Canned mushrooms have that “tinny” flavor. I prefer shiitake or oyster mushrooms
