Sesame wine chicken (台式麻油雞) is an unforgettable dish I tried at the night markets of Taiwan. This is a homely Taiwanese style of sesame wine chicken and it requires only a few ingredients.

See Also:

Compared to our local home-style sesame chicken, the Taiwanese version is more soupy since the chicken pieces are simmered in rice wine. This is perfect comfort food for colder weather or (in SG context) rainy days, since this dish is warming. Do use the freshest ginger and sesame oil (not rancid) you can find to cook this dish.

Women on confinement (the one-month period after giving birth) will love this dish with extra ginger, extra wine and extra sesame oil since they need warming food after child birth. If this is too “heaty” for you, just reduce the ginger and sesame oil accordingly.

I usually serve it as a one-dish meal with mee sua (wheat flour vermicelli) or as a side dish with rice.

    Mee sua with sesame wine chicken sounds good. But it is hot and not rainy here, right now. :( Shd be warming good for the cooler season

    For the rice wine, what kind of wine is it? Can I use huadiao wine?

      Sorry I mean can use shaoxing wine?


      • wiffy replied: — July 4th, 2016 @ 10:49 am

        Yes, you can. But I will use less than the recipe indicated as it has a stronger flavour. I updated the recipe with the rice wine I used.
