Taiwanese Sesame Oil Chicken Stew

Taiwanese Sesame Oil Chicken Stew
  • 1 1/2 pounds bone-in chicken, cut into pieces
  • 2 tablespoons vegetable oil
  • 3/4 cup rice wine
  • 3/4 cup dark sesame oil
  • 2 tablespoons light sesame oil
  • 7 slices fresh ginger root
  • 1 1/2 cups water
  • 1 (16 ounce) package uncooked somen noodles


  1. Bring a large pot of water to a boil. Stir in the chicken pieces, return to a boil, and cook for 2 minutes; drain. Heat the vegetable oil in a large skillet over high heat. Stir in the chicken pieces, and cook until browned on the outside, about 3 minutes. Pour in the rice wine, dark sesame oil, light sesame oil, and ginger slices. Bring to a boil, then reduce heat to medium, and simmer for 3 minutes. Add the water, return to a boil, and cook until the chicken is no longer pink, and easily pulls away from the bone, about 5 minutes more.
  2. Meanwhile, fill a large pot with lightly salted water and bring to a rolling boil over high heat. Once the water is boiling, drop the somen in a few noodles at a time and return to a boil. Cook uncovered, stirring occasionally, until the noodles have cooked through, but are still firm to the bite, 5 to 7 minutes. Drain well in a colander set in the sink.
  3. Stir the somen noodles into the simmering chicken to serve.
