Notes

1)Prepare all your ingredients before starting. When making a stir-fry, things move quickly. Having your ingredients ready keeps things running smoothly.
2)Don’t be tempted to use soy sauce – fermented black beans are salty so before adding any soy sauce, it’s best to wait and add it after tasting..
3)Stir your stir fry often to keep things from sticking to your pan or wok.
Change things up by replacing the chicken with your favorite protein. I’ve made this recipe with lamb or shrimp. They were both delicious!
4)You can buy black bean sauce here.
