Black Bean Chicken Stir Fry

When you're studying abroad, I think we can all agree that we're always in search for that simple, yet familiar comfort food. A good stir fry is always appetizing to have with a nice big bowl of rice and this black bean chicken stir fry is one of that simple things you could cook up wherever you are with just a few asian ingredients to satisfy that craving.

The main ingredient would be of course salted black bean which you can get at almost every Asian grocer I presume. It's simply cooked with a bit of chinese wine, onions and your choice of meat. Chicken, in this case. You could easily use some beef or pork slices. 

  • handful of Salted Black Beans (adjust according to how much chicken you're using)
  • 3 tbsp Chinese Wine
  • 1 sliced onion
  • Chicken pieces
  • 1 tsp sugar
  • Oil
  1. Roughly chop through the black beans, as you want the flavour to be more intense without using too much beans.
  2. In a pan of heated oil, fry the onions until translucent. 
  3. Add the black beans until fragrant, then sear the pieces of chicken.
  4. Once the chicken is cooked, add the Chinese Wine and sugar. Let the flavours meld for a while to create a sauce. Now it's ready to be served with some vegetables and rice. 
Served with carrots glazed in Chinese Wine and coriander.
