Sesame oil chicken takes only 20-30 minutes to cook.
Chicken wings & drummettes (1 pkg)
Chicken drumsticks (4-6 pieces)
Sesame Oil (3 tbs.)
Garlic (2 cloves crushed)
Ginger (1 bulb sliced thin strips)
Salt (1 tsp. or more)
Chicken Preparation depends on what chicken you found at the store:
Whole wings should be cut into wings & drummettes (discard wing tips).
Drumsticks don't need prep but require a longer cook time.
A package of already-cut wings & drummettes is the way to go.
Over medium-high heat, allow your pot to get very hot.
Add sesame oil. Stir in ginger.
Let them sizzle for a minute and enjoy the magical and nutty aroma.
This is the best part!
Add chicken and sprinkle 1 tsp. of salt.
Brown chicken pieces until golden brown, about 5 minutes.
Add water to cover all pieces (I added more after this picture).
Reduce to medium heat.
Cover and cook for 20 minutes for wings.
30 minutes for drumsticks.
Add salt to broth if needed.
Serve as shown, with white rice. Makes 6 servings.
I hope you all enjoy it! Let me know what you think.
