Black bean chicken stir-fry with snow peas and carrots

This is the first time I make black bean stir-fry chicken. I just bought some black bean sauce from the Asian market and I know it will not be my last. This dish was super tasty, healthy, quick and easy to put together. Super delicious to say the least.

I love cooking Asian food not only because I love the flavors but also because they are super quick and versatile. This black bean chicken stir-fry can also be made vegetarian by adding more veggies or substitute the chicken with firm tofu.

Do you have an Asian market near by? Even though I have placed the links for some of the ingredients, which you can purchase on Amazon, these products will be a fourth of the price if you go to a local Asian market. I just happened to have one about 10 miles away from my house so there is where I get them all. I normally go every 6 weeks and stock my pantry with some Asian essentials.

Be ware of some of them thought because a lot contain MSG. There are several products, like oyster sauce, that I have not been able to buy just because of that.

I have made some black bean stir-fry veggies the other day as well using eggplants and onions. We love eggplant so I try to use it as much as possible. I know some of you are not to fond of it but we truly like it a lot, we couldn’t live without it.

This black bean chicken stir-fry recipe kind of jumped ahead from other recipes I wanted to post, sorry about that. I figured it was too good of a recipe for you to wait until next week for me to post it.

Well, here you have it. I hope you get to make this recipe soon. If you like Asian food you will love this dish.
