Prep: 20 mins
Chill Time:: 1 hr
Cook: 1 hr 20 mins
Total: 2 hrs 40 mins


For Stuffed Peppers:

  • 6 pcs bell peppers, 5 oz each, large
  • lb ground chicken, finely chopped
  • oz fresh mushrooms, chopped
  • cup green onions, thinly sliced
  • 6 cloves garlic, minced
  • 2 pcs eggs
  • tbsp cornstarch, plus more for dusting
  • tbsp oyster sauce
  • 1 tbsp soy sauce
  • tsp ginger, minced
  • tsp salt
  • vegetable oil, for brushing

For Black Bean Sauce:

  • 3 tbsp black bean paste, or 1½ tbsp preserved black beans
  • cups chicken broth
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 2 tbsp vegetable oil
  • 1 tbsp ginger, minced
  • 1 tbsp oyster sauce
  • 1 tbsp soy sauce
  • 1 tbsp cornstarch, dissolved in 1 tbsp water
  • 2 tsp sesame oil
  • 2 tsp rice wine
  • ½ tsp brown sugar
  • ½ tsp salt
  • ¼ tsp ground white pepper


Stuffed Peppers:

  1. Combine all your ingredients together in a large mixing bowl, except for the bell peppers. Mix until evenly incorporated.
  2. Cover and set aside in a chilled area. Allow the protein to firm up, for at least an hour.
  3. While waiting, cut a ½-inch thick slice from the top of each pepper and set it aside.
  4. Remove the core, membranes, and seeds of the bell peppers either using a spoon or a sharp paring knife. Gently tap to remove the seeds at the bottom.
  5. Sprinkle roughly 2 tablespoons of cornstarch and tap to remove any excess. This will allow the filling to stick to the bell peppers.
  6. Preheat your oven to 350 degrees F.
  7. Once the proteins have firmed up, fill up your bell peppers.
  8. Brush the top and the outside of the bell peppers with oil, then place these onto a baking casserole of your choice.
  9. Roast until the bell peppers are tender and the chicken filling is fully cooked for roughly an hour. Once roasted, remove from the baking casserole and set aside.

Black Bean Sauce:

  1. Heat up your vegetable oil in a wok or skillet. Add the ginger and garlic. Saute until translucent.
  2. Deglaze with rice wine and reduce briefly.
  3. Add the rest of your ingredients, except for the cornstarch and sesame oil. Stir to combine and bring to a boil.
  4. Add your cornstarch slurry and reduce to a simmer. Continue simmering until thickened, roughly 5 to 7 minutes.
  5. Once thickened, add your sesame oil and stir to combine.
  6. Serve your stuffed bell peppers with your prepared black bean sauce.
