Recipe • Sesame Oil Chicken

Sesame Oil Chicken is one of my kids’ favorite dish, for the gravy is really yummy!
They love to drizzle the gravy over their rice 😋
There are a few versions of this dish but mostly using the same ingredients.
This is MamaBerl’s version,
the gravy has a stronger sweet taste & less gingery spice.
