Asparagus Chicken With Black Bean Sauce
45 mins (prep 35, cooking 10)
15 ingredients
4 servings
This is a very tasty family favourite that I've slightly modified from the original which came from a great cookbook called Thai Cooking and More. NOTE #1 Just so there's no confusion, this recipe uses a prepared Chinese Black Bean Sauce, NOT your regular black beans. This can be found with the ethnic foods at your local grocer, usually where you find soy sauce, etc. This is also where you'll find the hot chili paste; my preference is Sombel Oelek NOTE #2 Prep time includes 30 minute marinating time.
