  • 4 chicken thigh fillets skin on
  • 2 tablespoons fermented black beans drained
  • 4 cloves garlic peeled
  • 1 teaspoon fish sauce
  • 1/2 teaspoon pepper
  • 1 and 1/2 cup rice
  • 2 Chinese sausages sliced into rings
  • drizzle sesame seed oil
  • snipped scallions to garnish


  • Pat the chicken thigh fillets dry. Cut into strips about half an inch wide. Place in a bowl.
  • Lightly pound the black beans and garlic together.
  • Add the pounded black beans and garlic, fish sauce and pepper to the chicken. Mix well. Cover and allow to marinade while you prepare the rice.
  • Rinse the rice and place in a wide shallow cooking pan. Pour in 1 and 1/2 cups water. Bring to the boil. Cover the pan. Turn off the heat. Let the rice grains absorb the water in the residual heat for 10 minutes.
  • Toss the sliced Chinese sausages with the chicken.
  • Scatter the chicken (including the marinade) and sausage sliced over the rice.
  • Place the pan in a steamer set over simmering water. Cook for 30 minutes.
  • Off the heat, drizzle sesame seed oil over the steamed black beans and garlic chicken. Sprinkle in the scallions. Serve at once.
