Sesame Chicken (麻油鸡)

My mom used to cook this dish. This is also a very common dish found in confinement menu. Yes, I'm referring to Sesame Chicken (麻油鸡).

This is another nostalgic dish that is not only surprisingly easy to prepare, but also has minimal washing as I'm just using one pot to cook everything...well, other than my rice cooker for cooking rice.

Part A
900g chicken pieces (I used a combination of mid joint wings and chicken fillets)

2 tsp shao xing wine
Dash of pepper

Part B
4 - 5 cloves of garlic, lightly smashed, with skin on
