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.

    The dish look great noobs! But I really dig the post on growing your own peppers. I didn’t realise we could in this part of the world. Thanks! I (actually, my husband) will get on this asap :)

    Mmmm black beans. The rice really does seem like it goes really fast whenever I use that seasoning.

    This looks great. My stir fries always turn out horribly. I need more practice!

    How delicious! I did try uploading to WordPress, and it seems only a better camera can produce the perfect pictures that I swoon over. How silly was I? Haha…your pictures sure deserve a good swoon!

    Yum, black beans! They’ve been a favorite of mine for years. We like them with beef and bell peppers and some noodles. Lovely dish for Grow Your Own!

    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.
