This is a quick and easy making chicken recipe with dark meat and a touch of oriental taste--which comes from the fermented black beans. Very good for dinner with fresh made rice or noodles.

YES! Simple and Profound. Wonderful. We use legs and thighs. Rice noodles are a great backdrop and texture change. This goes to the top of our list. Read More

We had to cook our chicken more than the recipe suggested and it didn't turn out very flavorful. However the sauce and veggies were fantastic over rice! Read More

I recommend cooking it for longer (at least a half hour after boiling). This recipe is FANTASTIC! The chicken was moist and tender and the black bean paste added extra flavor. Will definitely make again! Read More

I omitted the onions pepper and chives and subbed breasts for thighs sesame oil for olive and ginger powder for fresh. Instead of adding the chicken later I added everything at once to give more time to cook. I also just used canned drained black beans and threw in some brocolli. The sesame oil ginger and soy sauce I added later made it "oriental" tasting. Another idea is smashing the beans with a spoon to make a paste if you're looking to do more work with the recipe.
