Fried Chicken with Black Bean Sauce Recipe

The Fried Chicken with Black Bean Sauce Recipe offers a delicious and flavorful Chinese stir-fry made with chicken, black bean sauce, and a selection of aromatic ingredients. Known for its tastiness, this dish is an excellent introduction to using Chinese fermented black beans for those unfamiliar with or infrequent users of this ingredient.

To start, the chicken is sautéed in a wok or fry pan until it achieves a golden brown color, then set aside. In the same pan, shallots, garlic, and minced ginger are sautéed until they reach a brown but not burnt state. The black bean sauce, consisting of a package of black bean sauce, water, and sugar, is mixed separately and then added to the pan.

Once the sauce is incorporated, the previously sautéed chicken is reintroduced to the pan along with sliced green onions, onions, and red or yellow bell peppers. The ingredients are thoroughly mixed, and the stir-fry is heated until hot before turning off the heat. This delightful Chinese dish is best enjoyed when served hot, accompanied by cooked rice.

The Fried Chicken with Black Bean Sauce Recipe not only delivers a burst of flavors and textures but also provides an opportunity to explore the unique and savory taste of Chinese fermented black beans.
