Chicken in black bean sauce – Chinese style stir-fried chicken and vegetables in black bean sauce


This classic Chinese dish could be everyone’s favourite and the most sorted in the net.  No doubt that we all love Chinese food simply because of their unique mouthwatering flavours.   The whole process of cooking this delicious dish is quite simple and less time consuming than you think it is, once you gather all the necessary ingredients.

The generous amount of vegetables used in this recipe make it much more healthier than a typical take a way.  If you prefer more veggies, go for carrots, broccoli or even cauliflower,  which could add more flavours, nutrition value as well as quantity to this dish.

I recommend Amoy brand sauces for your Chinese dishes for its authentic Oriental taste and aroma.

Serve this with steaming basmati rice, jasmine or on a bed of noodles and try picking the pieces with a pair of chopsticks!
