This is a classic Chinese recipe for stir-fried chicken in a savoury black bean sauce. The savoury sauce is so addictive that I will usually cook extra rice to enjoy the sauce.

The bell peppers give colour and extra nutrition to the dish. Black bean sauce is very versatile, and you can use it to stir-fry many dishes, including my favourite Claypot Yong Tau Foo in Black Bean Sauce.

    Ah, another easy peasy dish for any kitchen. I like your addition of hot bean paste. It will be good for yong tou fu as well.

    The dish looks yummy, I would like to try out this weekend.
    May I know where can I purchase dried fermented black beans & la dou ban jiang ? From NTUC? Can email me the picture of the bottle if you dun mind?
    Can recommend me the brand you using?
    Thanks :)

    If using LKK spicy black beans sauce, can i omit using the fermented black beans?

    Seems a great recipe btw. Tried your black bean yong tau foo and it was fantastic.

      The LKK spicy bean sauce is an instant sauce, so I think if you are using that, you probably don’t need most of the listed ingredients in this recipe. Thanks for trying out the ytf recipe, glad you like it.
