Adapted from here

Basically the name of this dishes tell it all, 3 cups are for 1 cup sesame oil, 1 cup rice wine and 1 cup light soya sauce (I reduce slightly as I don't like too salty).

If I only cook half chicken, I will reduce the above to half too.

Put in the sesame oil, fried with some thinly slice ginger. Add in the chicken and then pour in the rice wine. fried for one minutes and pour in the light soya sauce. Simmer in medium flame for about 10 minutes or until the sauce thicken. stirring occasionally.

I add in some ear fungus too. I put it in together with the chicken.
