Chicken Stir Fry w/ Black Beans and Bell Peppers

I actually made this dish a couple of weeks ago, but never got around to post it. This chicken dish is awesome because it only requires two "real" ingredients - bell peppers and chicken (boneless breast or thigh - you pick). I always have pieces of chicken breast in the freezer and I am starting to buy bell peppers every time I go grocery shopping.

This recipe also doesn't take long to cook at all. I call it a tasty meal in a hurry. It is a deliciously homely and pleasing stir fry dish. Super easy to make. A perfect weeknight meal!

Chicken Stir Fry w/ Fermented Black Beans and Bell Peppers:

- 1 large chicken breast, chopped into small pieces

- 1/2 cup chopped onion
- 1/2 tbsp Chinese cooking wine
