Sesame Oil Chicken Mee Sua

I am an absolute fan of sesame oil chicken. A popular dish during the confinement period, this dish
contains a lot of ginger which warms the body and drives out wind. As for me, this is pure comfort food, especially with a bowl of plain porridge. I love this so much that I've decided to create a mee sua soup dish out of it. Here's sharing with you that recipe:

Serves 2

1/2                      chicken, cut into pieces
2 thumbsize       old ginger, julienned
2 tablespoons     sesame oil
1 tablespoon      light soy sauce
1/2 tablespoon   dark soy sauce
2 tablespoons     chinese cooking wine
3 cups                water (add in only 1/2 cup of water if you are making sesame oil chicken)


Heat a pot on high heat with 2 tablespoons of sesame oil. Add in the julienned ginger and stir fry till the ginger turns golden brown and fragrant.

Add in the chicken pieces and stir fry till the chicken pieces are browned on the outside. Add in 2 tablespoons of Chinese cooking wine and let it sizzle for about 20 seconds.

Add in the dark, light soy sauce and stir to mix well. Add in the water and bring to boil. Lower heat and simmer for about 15 minutes.

Serve with mee sua which has been blanched in boiling water for 30 seconds.
