Sesame Oil Chicken & Beancurd Stick



This is the dish that my eldest sister used to cook for dinner when I stayed with her years back. Among all her home cooked dishes, this is one that I can still remember its taste until today. It doesn't look outstanding at all. But, it has very homey taste. If you like chicken, beancurd stick and sesame oil, you'll like this dish.

Good idea. Never thought about adding tek gah ki into this type of chicken dish. I loooooove tek gah ki and always use it to cook soup only. Will be adding it when I cook my chicken dinner tonight. :)
