Chicken with Sesame Seed Oil

A beautiful set meal for the family.....voila! There are days, a lazy mum like me trying to juggle my time for the day and still ensuring a good meal for the family. So, here goes a set meal - it's steamed rice with chicken stir-fry with young ginger in sesame seed oil. Wow, it's so aromatic and taste real good. I have add on butter- grilled french beans to make a complete meal.

Sesame seed oil is very aromatic and it has good nutritious value too. It is normally served for chinese ethnic mommies during their post-natal (1 month confinement days)

All you need : * half chicken - chopped into pieces * slices of young ginger * 1 clove chopped garlic * 3 Tbs Sesame seed oil

Simple Process :
1. Heat the wok with the sesame seed oil and saute the chopped garlic and ginger slices till aromatic
2. Add the chicken and stir well till chicken turns white, add 1/2 cup water, salt to taste, to add a little color, add in 1 Tbs light soy sauce
3. Simmer over low heat till chicken is cooked
4. Serve hot with steamed rice

Enjoy a simple delicious set meal!
