    This is a fantasy land 22 minutes... sure IF you have everything prepped which is conservatively another 10 minute cooking time (if not more for every little seasoning pot made up).... On top of that who in the blue hell is gonna wanna wash up after or are you just gonna turn the entire dishwasher on for your 'twenty two minute' meal.

    It is the same thing with this Jamie Oliver '15 minute meals' it can be done but you will use more pans, bowls and the blender more than you want plus the guy doing it is a professional cook.... Many amateurs struggle with transitions in cooking and multi-tasking that is presumed within their ability. More so the professional kitchen has mise en place where the cook time is essentially disconnected from the prep time but I like 99.9% of people who cook, factor in prep and cook time....

    22 min if you already have all the ingredients laid out, and pots and pans and everything ready for you

    Use fish sauce instead of adding extra salt
    Pan is way too small

    She used the same tongs for raw chicken and cooked ;-;
    Otherwise, nice. The fast forwarding stuff is absolutely horrible. I'd rather just watch her cook and speak.

    Never trust a white woman telling you how to cook classic Chinese sesame chicken without using a wok in 22 minutes.
    I can watch any Chinese restaurant make this in under 5 minutes correctly or watch any Chinese chef on a video make this alot better using a wok like they are supposed to .

    What us Chinese like to do to thicken then sauce is to add a cornflower slurry (cornflower mixed into some water). That would make the sauce go up a notch :D

    The video is focused on you and time and not the dish. You fast forward when u work on dish and show your face when u r talking.

    Why did the guy say she had over 12 mins left when the timer was showing just over 9 minutes?

    It's possible to make traditional japanese rice in 22 mins, if you skip the draining and steaming steps. Which I frequently do.
