Chicken with black bean and coriander

all details

The fresh leaves as well as the tender roots are used to flavour many classic oriental preparations, such as a Thai green curry paste, but the dried seeds are indispensable in everyday staples such as curry powder, Indian masalas, chutneys, sausages, frankfurts and hot dogs.

Ingredients

  • 4 tbsp of fermented, dried black beans
  • 1 large onion
  • 1 large green capsicum
  • 300g of boned chicken thighs
  • 4 tablespoons of extra virgin olive oil
  • 3 cloves garlic
  • 2cm piece of ginger
  • fish sauce
  • 1 tbsp of dark soy
  • sesame oil
  • 1 cup of roughly chopped coriander

Method

Soak 4 tablespoons of fermented, dried black beans in a bowl with plenty of cold water for 15 minutes, then rinse well.

Chop a large, peeled onion into 1/2cm wedges. Cut a large green capsicum into 2cm tiles. Cut 300g of boned chicken thighs into bite-sized pieces. Heat 4 tablespoons of extra virgin olive oil in a wok or heavy saucepan. Just before it begins to smoke, add the onions, capsicum, 3 minced cloves of garlic and a 2cm piece of minced ginger. Stir-fry for 30 seconds and add the chicken. Fry for 2 minutes, add the rinsed black beans, a good splash of fish sauce and a tablespoon of dark soy. Simmer for a minute or two more, check for seasoning, add a few drops of sesame oil and take off the heat.

To serve 

Transfer to a serving plate and scatter on a cup of roughly chopped coriander.

Serve with jasmine rice.
