Braised Whole Chicken with Sesame Oil

I recalled I ate Braised Chicken with Sesame oil daily during my confinement (child birth)and get bored of it during that time.But now I kind of miss it.So I purposely bought a whole chicken and make this dish.Of course ,I loves my food spicy dearly and this dish won't be exception! I added dried whole pepper together when braised it to get the kick out of it.This dish it's really a delicious and comfort food!

1 whole chicken,about 3 lbs,washed and cut small
5 cloves garlic,peeled and chopped,
12 inch ginger,bruised and sliced
10 dried whole pepper
2 tbsp oyster sauce
1 tbsp sugar
5-6 tbsp sesame oil
2 tbsp oil
1 cup water
soy sauce to taste
some cut scallion
1:Prepare a deep skillet with oil and sesame oil at medium high heat.add in ginger and garlic,sauteed until lightly brown or fragrant.Add in dried whole pepper and chicken.
2:Use spatula and mix ingredients well,add in water ans seasoning.Braised chicken for 20-30 minutes or until cooked.
3:Id it's too dry add more water if necessary.Check the seasoning before sprinkle some cut scallion.
4:Dish out and serve warm with rice.

Every now and then, I still make this dish. Confinement food is the best thing about the confinement period! To me, at least! :)
