Black Bean Chicken Spaghetti


A truly delicious dish that's bound to please!

  • About 20-25 minutes
  • Easy



Tired of the same old pasta dishes? Our Black Bean Chicken Spaghetti is quite different! It is a fusion dish combining flavors from the Americas, Far East, and the Mediterranean – it is truly a crowd pleaser!

What You’ll Need: 

  • Half a pound dry spaghetti, cooked till al dente according to package direction and reserve a quarter cup of the pasta water
  • 2 tablespoons soy sauce
  • 2 tablespoons fermented black beans (found in the Asian aisle of your local store)
  • A pound of chicken breast fillet, sliced into bite size pieces (you may also use thigh fillets)
  • Quarter of a teaspoon red pepper flakes
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder (or use 2 cloves of garlic that’s been finely chopped)
  • 1 big pinch of finely ground black pepper
  • 1 teaspoon sesame seeds for garnish
  • Lime wedges
  • 2 tablespoons cooking oil (use a light oil, don’t use olive oil)

Let's heat up the kitchen with this delicious recipe!

1. Heat up your pan or wok over medium high heat. Add the oil and chicken, making sure to cook the chicken until evenly browned on both sides.


2. Once the chicken is cooked, reduce heat to medium and add the garlic powder (or finely chopped garlic), fermented black beans, red pepper flakes, and ground black pepper.


3. Cook stirring constantly for about a minute.


4. Add the cooked spaghetti, a few tablespoons of the pasta water (start with 2) and the soy sauce. Toss everything together for the delicious flavors to meld with the noodles. This will take about 1-2 minutes.


5. Serve the dish on individual plates and sprinkle with sesame seeds for garnish. Don’t forget to add a wedge of lime!

The dish makes for 3-4 servings. Best goes with very cold beer or iced tea plus a green salad.
