Three Cup Chicken

A quintessential Taiwanese dish. The “cups” in this recipe’s name means that the equal parts of soy sauce, rice wine, and sesame oil are used for making this dish. It’s a rich, savory, and salty chicken dish with these ingredients alone. The garlic, ginger, and scallions add the fragrant aroma to the dish.

1 1/2 pound of chicken (cut into small pieces)

1/2 cup of sesame oil

1/2 cup of light soy sauce

1/2 cup of rice wine

6 garlic cloves (sliced)

1 piece of ginger (sliced)

1 teaspoon of sugar
