    Another recipe from Sunset's Chinese Cookbook. A lovely combo of flavors. Over the years we have changed the recipe to suit our tastes. Love it, love it, love it! Oh, by the way, you can also make this using beef or shrimp.

      We discovered this ages ago and I'm glad that someone put this on the Zaar. We've made one major change however by subbing 14 to16 oz of extra-firm tofu for the chicken and a vegetable broth for the water. We also add some red pepper flakes to the oil in the wok before adding the black beans and other seasonings. And we also use 2-3 Tbsp. of the plain, chopped fermented black beans.
