“Here's a Malaysian homemade dish that's easy to follow. It is a dish that is commonly enjoyed in Malaysian Chinese households.” - by Siah
Original recipe yields 6 servings
- Whisk together the light soy sauce, cornstarch, 1 teaspoon of sugar, and pepper in a large glass or ceramic bowl. Add the chicken breast and toss to evenly coat. Cover the bowl with plastic wrap, and marinate in the refrigerator for 10 minutes.
- Heat the water in a large skillet over medium-high heat until boiling. Quickly stir in the chicken and cook for 3 to 4 minutes. Chicken will not be cooked through. Drain the water and place chicken on a plate. Set aside. Carefully wipe down the skillet and heat the vegetable oil over medium heat. Cook and stir the ginger and garlic until fragrant. Stir in the chicken, black beans and 1 tablespoon of sugar. Cook the chicken breasts until no longer pink in the center. Stir in the red and green peppers, green onions, carrots, oyster sauce, and thick soy sauce. Cook and stir for 1 minutes.

"I was simply looking for a new recipe in which I could cook with chicken and black beans and I found this one! This recipe has a very unique and delicious taste! Here are some recommendations. Firstl..." See morey, instead of "draining the water" I saved the "water" aka CHICKEN BROTH after I boiled the chicken. You can use this for another recipe or if your recipe turns out too sweet or salty you can always use the broth to dilute it in the end, which is what I ended up doing. Secondly, I didn't have all of the ingredients so I made some substitutions. I didn't have oyster sauce, so instead I used fish sauce. I also didn't have thick soy sauce, but a great substitute is regular soy sauce and molasses, which I added at the end. Since I used molasses I avoided putting white sugar in the recipe as well. This recipe is great over a bed of rice!"
