Sesame Wine Chicken With Somen/Mee Sua

This Sesame Wine Chicken With Somen or Mee Sua has a rich aroma of roasted sesame oil, Shaoxing's wine, and ginger. This is a great soup to serve during the cooler season. They just warm you up! Anyway, Somen is a thin Japanese wheat noodle, and they are also known as Mee Sua in Malaysia. These noodles are very absorbent. So, ladle the soup in the noodles when you're about to savour the dish. Another option, you can serve them separately too.

Sesame Wine Chicken With Somen/Mee Sua


2 Bundles (200 grams) Somen/Mee Sua
2 Pcs Organic Chicken Drumsticks, cut into smaller pieces
1 Pc Organic Chicken Breast (Bone-In), cut into smaller pieces
3 Tbsp Sesame Oil
60 grams Ginger, thinly sliced
1 Tbsp Soy Sauce
2 Cups of Shaoxing Wine
1 ½ Cups of Water
Sea Salt, to taste


Heat the wok over high heat. Add sesame oil and swirl to coat the wok.

Add ginger, stir until fragrant, or light brown in color. Mix in the chicken pieces and stir-fry until cooked. Add soy sauce and give it a good stir. Then pour in the wine and water. Closed with a lid and bring it to a boil, and lower the heat and simmer for about 15 to 20 minutes. Season the soup with salt, if necessary.

When ready to serve, bring a pot of water to a boil. Add somen and cook for about 2 minutes, or according to the manufacturer’s instructions. Drain cooked somen under cold running water for a few seconds. Shake off excess water and divide the somen to 2 or 3 bowls. Ladle the soup and chicken onto the somen and serve immediately.
