Sesame Oil Chicken is one of those dishes many of us remember from our old childhood days. It’s a simple comfort food that has earned a place in many of our hearts, and that many mothers know by heart. This is also one of those rare times where a dish with the word “oil” in it is actually amazingly healthy!
Often, it’s that unmistakable fragrance of wok-tossed ginger slivers in sesame oil which first tempts us by nose. Aside from its amazing aroma, the dish is a popular choice among recovering mothers and is highly sought out for its therapeutic and restorative effects.
The core ingredients are delightfully simple, combining chicken, ginger, and sesame oil with a host of subtle supporting stars. Choosing high quality cuts of meat will help you bring out the best flavours with your marinade during the stir fry and create that beautiful succulent texture.
In our version, we add Huiji Waist Tonic to double up with an extra boost of nutrients. Best of all, it’s a recipe that won’t put a dent in your busy schedule but still makes no compromises on taste. We’ve got you covered this week! 😉
