This is a very fragrant and delicious dish. During my confinement my mother cooked this dish for me. The chicken fry with sesame oil and ginger helps to promote circulation, provide nourishment and stimulate energy, especially for women who have just given birth.

As sesame oil is "heaty" you can reduce the proportion of the oil when serving this dish on normal days.

Ingredients :
Half the chicken (if you do not like breast meat, you can cook with chicken wings which I do)
2-3 medium slices of mashed ginger (squeeze out 2 tspn juice)
2 cloves of mashed garlic
1 tbsp chinese wine (glutinous rice wine)
1 tbsp dark soya sauce
salt and sugar for seasoning

Wash chicken and cut into serving pieces (if whole chicken)
Marinate chicken pieces with seasoning, dark soya sauce and ginger juice
Heat cooking and sesame oil in a wok
When oil is hot fry ginger slices and garlic till fragrant
Put in chicken and stir fry for 5 mins
Add seasoning and cover wok to cook till chicken pieces are cooked
Pour in wine and stir fry for another 10 mins
Serve with rice
