Sesame Oil Chicken Rice with Mushroom 麻油香菇鸡饭


This is a recipe I learnt from a Chinese cooking show. The original recipe just consist of sesame oil, ginger, mushroom and rice. I added chicken cube for my version. Sesame oil, ginger, chicken and mushroom are perfect combinations....makes the rice is so fragrant.

I just love this kind of one-pot-dish.  With it, I settle our home cooked meal for Sunday lunch and dinner. And it's not time consuming.  I can save more time to spend with my baby over the weekend.

2 1/2 cup of rice, washed
3 thumb-sized of ginger, skinned and chopped
1 chicken breast, cubed
7 dried Shiitake mushroom, dehydrated, stalk removed and cubed
3 tbsp of sesame oil
2 3/4 cups of water

Seasonings:
1 tbsp of oyster sauce
4 tbsp of light soy sauce
1/2 tbsp of dark soy sauce
3 tbsp of shao xing wine

Steps:
1.Heat up sesame oil in a wok using low heat. Sauté ginger till fragrant. Do this slowly and prevent over-heating as sesame oil has lower boiling point.

5.Pour in water and bring to a boil.
