Didn't have much at home, just ramaged through the fridge to use whatever was there to make this psuedo Chinese meal.
For the shrimps just stir fry some onion, add the green pepper, then the shrimps, followed by the black bean paste, a dash of sugar, a dash of salt, and some cooking wine. Less than 10 mins including prep.
The chicken is also some kinda stirfry except the basil leaves were fried to crunchy before hand. Leave only a bit of oil for the chicken pieces and garlic, fry until almost done, season with soy sauce, sugar, and whateverelse you fancy, then stir in the basil gently. Both are nice with a big bowl of rice. Speaking of which I found some red rice here, can't wait to try it.
