Sometimes I do miss this sesame flavour braised chicken [a common homey dish] that is so easy to prepare compared to many other chicken dishes.
This one is a little different from the usual as I added gizzards and wolfberries [goji]. It looks good and also tastes good. The chicken/gizzards are tasty and the sauce is awesome to spread over rice. I love the ginger slices, they are good if you are a ginger lover.
1 large chicken whole leg - skin removed and cut into pieces
6 pieces chicken gizzards - cleaned, halved and blanched
1 tbsp wolf berries
30 gm ginger - thinly sliced
2 tbsp sesame seed oil
2 tbsp oyster sauce
1 tbsp light soy sauce
1 tbsp wine
1/4 tsp sugar
- Heat wok, add in sesame oil, saute ginger slices until aromatic and crispy at the edges.
- Add in chicken, fry until it turns firm, add in gizzards and seasoning ingredients. Stir to mix and coat well before adding enough water to cover the ingredients.
- Bring to boil, then lower heat to simmer until gravy is reduced, stirring occasionally. Add in goji, stir to mix well.
- Dish up to serve with rice.
