You've had Mongolian Beef, so let’s switch things up with Mongolian Chicken! The same thick, sticky, savory, and tangy sauce coats juicy chicken bites perfect for piling over rice. Asian-inspired meal that's so much better than takeout. Mongolian Chicken only takes 20 minutes or less, so this will become a weeknight staple that you’ll always look forward to making!
In a small bowl, mix the oyster sauce, 1 tablespoon of the soy sauce, the water, the sugar, and the dark soy sauce together to form the sauce. Set the sauce aside.
Marinate the chicken with remaining 1 tablespoon of the soy sauce, the rice wine, the sesame oil, and the cornstarch, stirring to mix the marinade well.
Heat up a skillet or wok on high heat and add 1/2 tablespoon of the olive oil.
Add the chicken, tossing and stir frying until the surface turns white but not completely cooked, about 3 minutes.
Transfer the chicken to a plate and set aside.
Clean up the skillet or wok with paper towels, and add the remaining 1 tablespoon of the cooking oil.
When the oil is heated, add the garlic and ginger, stir frying until aromatic.
Return the chicken to the skillet and do a few quick stirs before adding the sauce.
Stir continuously until the sauce thickens and the chicken is cooked through, about 5-7 minutes.
Add the scallions, stirring to combine well.
Top the chicken with the white sesame and serve immediately.
