      Found this to be great, changed a few things as couldn't find Black Beans, so used a Sharwoods Black Bean Stir Fry Sauce, used Red Wine instead of Sherry also added sliced mushrooms, and a variety of peppers sliced. At the end I heated the marinade with the stir fry.

      Black bean chicken is one of my favorites and the leeks add something extra! It's a little dry; it may need more saucy ingredients added at the end. Also I'm not sure about rinsing the black beans since my cooking teacher never did that. I think it may have taken away some of the flavor. I added a red pepper for color. Very good dish made for the Chinese New Year!
