“This recipe is so easy.  It’s called Sanbeiji which translates to “three cup chicken,” named for the three main ingredients; soy sauce, sesame oil, and rice wine”. Amanda


2 pounds sliced chicken

1 tablespoon vegetable oil

½ cup soy sauce

½ cup Sesame Oil

½ cup Rice wine



Brown the chicken in a pan with some vegetable oil.

Transfer to a pot and stir in the soy sauce, sesame oil, and rice wine.

Bring to a boil then lower the heat and simmer for about 10 minutes.

Discard the sauce, or keep some of it if you want. 

Mix in some fresh basil and serve with rice.

Note: I usually use less than 1 part sesame oil to make the dish less greasy. 

Also, some restaurants make this with sugar instead of rice wine.  Of course, I often use sweet 
Israeli wine when I’m out of rice wine.

Serve 4.
