Sesame Oil Chicken

This is another comfort food from my childhood which is fast and easy to cook. I should have tried this way earlier. The sauce goes very well with rice so it’s a great dish to cook when pressed for time or having guests.



  • 6 mid joint wings or drumlettes
  • 1 tbsp sesame oil
  • 1/2 tbsp olive oil
  • 4-5 slices of ginger julienne into thin strips
  • 1 tbsp Shaoxing wine
  • 50-70 ml water
  • 1.5 tsp dark soya sauce
  • 1 tsp light soya sauce


  1. Heat sesame and olive oil in pan and add in ginger, fry until fragrant
  2. Add chicken and stir fry until the meat is cooked on surface
  3. Pour in 50 ml water and both soya sauce, cover and simmer for 5 mins.
  4. Add more water if drying out and turn chicken over and simmer another 5 mins.
  5. Add in Shaoxing wine and check that chicken is cooked thoroughly and once you smell the aroma of the wine evaporating, the dish is done
