Hi Alannia,

This dish is a famous Taiwanese dish and it is cooked using 1 cup sesame oil, 1 cup soya sauce and 1 cup Chinese wine.

I usually only cook half a chicken, so if you were to cook one whole chicken you have to double all ingredients.

Ingredients:
1/2 Chicken
sesame oil 1/2 cup
spring onion (cut short) 2stalks
2 pieces chilli cut into 6 pieces and remove seeds
Garlic(crushed) 4pcs
ginger few slices
some fresh Thai Basil (for that added fragrance)

Seasoning
Dark soya sauce 5tbsp
light soya sauce 2tbsp
wine 1/2cup (紹興酒)
sugar 2tsp

Method:
1. Wash chicken under tap water and pat it dry with kitchen towel. Cut into appropriate size and briefly cook for 3 minutes in bubbling hot water and remove from water. This is to remove blood from the chicken.

2. Heat sesame oil, fry ginger first till a little dry then add in spring onions, chilli and garlic, add in chicken pieces and stir fry well. Add in seasonings and stir fry until well combined.

3. Transfer everything to a claypot, cover up and turn to medium heat and stew tilll sauce thickens. Serve hot with some fresh Thai Basil.

I learnt from a celebrity chef on his VCD that '3 cup chicken' implies to the ingred. used which are soya sauce, wine and sesame oil.

It may vary from individual on the amount of the 3 ingred. in proportion to the chicken used, so...may not always used 1 cup of each ingredient to cook the chicken.

Sounds interesting, but the 1/2 cup sesame oil sounds a little scary. Does the sesame oil smell overwhelming?

Florence, thanks for the recipe. Jennifer, thanks for the 'history' / comments.

Btw, is the Thai Basil leaves the same as our local Daun Selasih?

Will give it a try and let you know the out come.

I agreed that you need not use 1 cup of each but the originality is 1 cup of each - check the history of this dish. Very Happy

Have tried out this recipe over the weekend. It's very fragrant and yummy. Did not have the Thai basil leaves :( so couldn't put in. Instead of fresh chilis, I put in the dried chili, like the restaurants. Gives it an extra kick.

Hi Lynn!

You can use dry sherry to substitute rice wine which many of us do living abroad where good rice wine is not easy to come by and is more expensive than dry sherry! Smile

I have one silly question. Does the cup measurement in cooking the same as cup measurement in baking? Do we use the same type of cup?
