Black Bean Chicken ~ 豉汁鸡


A simple chicken dish, enhanced with fermented black beans and oyster sauce together with a generous amount of ginger and garlic.  The kitchen was simply aromatic as I was sauteing the chopped garlic, ginger and fermented black beans.  Must admit it was a delicious dish to pair well with white rice.
