This sesame oil chicken is a very easy recipe. So easy that anyone can whip out effortlessly. This dish is one of my favourite dishes–the smell of sesame oil and ginger is soooo divine. This is a popular dish for women on confinement because it is believed that the sesame oil and ginger plus the wine can help to expel ‘wind’ and warm up the body. But no worries, you can eat this anytime even if you’re not on confinement. This super yummy dish is suitable for both men and women.
