Chicken in black bean sauce – Delicious Chinese side dish


This classic Chinese dish could be everyone’s favourite as it is the most sorted in the net.  No doubt that we all love Chinese food simply because of their unique mouthwatering flavours and the easy to make techniques. 

The generous amount of vegetables used in this recipe make it much healthier than a typical takeaway.  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 soy and chilli sauces for this Chinese dish for its authentic Oriental taste and aroma.

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