  • 2 leaves basil
  • 1 bulb garlic
  • 3 slices old ginger
  • 1 cup rice wine
  • 1 cup sesame oil
  • 1 cup soy sauce
  • 3 large bunches spring onions
  • 2 tablespoon sugar
  • 1 chicken


  1. Marinate chicken with soy, sesame oil and rice wine. At least for 6 hours, although overnight is best.Take the chill off the meat.
  2. Heat up some sesame oil in a wok or claypot until it is sizzling hot.Throw in garlic, ginger and spring onions. Fry briefly till fragrant.
  3. Add in chicken and sear.Keep stir-frying.
  4. Pour in the marinade liquid and the sugar. Continue to cook on medium.Once you have a rolling boil, cover the wok/claypot and let it simmer over a small flame, until all the liquid has disappeared and the chicken is on the cusp of burning.There should hardly be any gravy left. The chicken should be caramelised (charred at parts, even) and sizzling when served.
