Sesame Oil Chicken
Hi everyone, I hope you had a wonderful weekend?
It hasn’t even been a full week, but I already love blogging on wordpress. It’s really easy to do without having to lug extra gadgets around. 🙂
Without further ado, let’s get down to business.
Sesame seeds are rich in zinc. Zinc, as we know (or maybe not ALL of us know- ttc is a teacher), is essential for sperm production as it boosts testosterone levels. It is also believed that the antioxidants in zinc help to protect sperm.
Sesame seeds are not beneficial to men only, they actually are of some benefit to women suffering from some form of estrogen dominance (women with Fibroids, PCOS, Endometriosis, amongst others). The phytoestrogens in sesame seeds help to reduce excess levels of estrogen in women (and men!).
Caution: if your estrogen levels are normal (lucky!!!), limit your consumption of phytoestrogens to about 3 times a month, just to be safe.
Now to the recipe. This is a very aromatic, very warm dish. Warm as in the feeling you get when it hits your stomach. It is VERY tasty, even if I do say so myself (and I do), and I have already made a note to myself to tell my mum she’ll be making this in lieu of ‘omugwo’ peppersoup. It has a depth to it that makes you really believe it’s healing something somewhere. Lol.
Anyway, it’s simple: make this, love it, tell me about it.
300g of chicken, chopped into 2 inch pieces (combine drumsticks and thighs for the best flavour)
1 tablespoon of coconut oil
2 tablespoons of sesame oil
3 inch piece of ginger, sliced thinly (use this amount, recipe will not be the same if you don’t- can be grated)
2 teaspoons of curry powder
2 tablespoons of soy sauce
1 tablespoon of worcestershire sauce
3 tablespoons of freshly blended atarodo
1 tablespoon of oyster sauce
2 teaspoons of cayenne pepper (I love the heat)
Add coconut oil to a wok over medium heat. After 10 seconds, add ginger and stir for 2 minutes.
Add the chopped chicken, stir fry for 2 minutes.
Add all other ingredients apart from sesame oil. Stir to combine.
Add 1 cup of water, stir and reduce heat to low and leave to simmer for 8 minutes.
Add sesame oil, remove from heat, serve and enjoy
Remember, it’s sooo good for you,
