This is a good sesame oil flavoured chicken to try if you love to eat Mua Eu Kay [Sesame Oil Fried Chicken] but do not want to eat all chicken meat. Just add a packet of eryngii mushrooms to only one chicken whole leg and there you have it. You can also use this recipe to prepare Sesame Oil Chicken Rice [Mua Eu Kay Fun] to serve as a One Dish Meal.
The chicken and mushrooms are as tasty and delicious well coated with thick sesame flavor [if you use good quality sesame seed oil] and natural sweetness of the other ingredients.
