(Mine is for 5 - 6 family members)
1 Cup = Full of Black Beans
9 - 12 pcs = Chicken Legs

Water - Depend on family members.
1 Big Dried Squid (枪乌贼)
If the dried squid not too big, can put 2 pcs.

**For those who want to use Slow Cooker**
First wash all the ingredients & put the ingredients into the slow cooker to cook for 7hrs and is ready to be serve. Add some salt to your taste. Good thing is Water will not reduce using Slow Cooker.
**For those who want to use Stove to cook**
First wash all the ingredients & put the ingredients into the pot together with a ceramic spoon to cook until the water started to boil then turn to slow fire to cook for 5 hrs and is ready to be serve. The purpose of adding a ceramic spoon is to help soften the black bean. Add some salt to your taste. Bad thing is Water will reduce using Stove to cook and need to check on the water level. So ideally is best to put in water until full pot & slower cook, water will slowly reduce & won't be dry up.
