Roland cooked this sesame seed oil chicken or better known as 麻油鸡 in Chinese for dinner last night along with the Super Spicy Chilli Chicken for our friends who came over for a game of mahjong.
This dish is one of my favourite comfort food. Usually Chinese women in confinement will be fed with this because sesame seed oil is heaty – very suitable for them as their body just went through childbirth. Fret not, you can eat this anytime, whether or not you are in confinement 🙂

As you can see, Roland cooked ‘freely’. His ingredient portions were mostly using his own estimation. Hope you can recreate this yummy dish in the comfort of your home.
