Stir-fry Boneless Chicken with Fermented Black Bean Sauce

Black bean paste is a popular sauce used in many Asian or Chinese dishes.I bought a can of preserved or fermented black bean awhile back..It's been sitting in the pantry for more than a year.This kind of preserved black beans have a long shelf life,so I do not notice or worried about it.Out of sight out of mind.While re-arranging the cans food,I realized I still have a can of this black beans and decided to use the preserved black bean with boneless chicken for dinner.Personally for me, I don't mind the pungent strong smell but Mishu complaint about the black bean strong flavor..Overall this stir-fry black bean chicken dish is delicious and I can't stop eating with steamed white rice for 2 dinners!!
