Black Pepper Chicken

The Chinese restaurant buffet here that we frequent served a very delicious black pepper chicken. We just discovered it recently and both my hubby and I loved it very much. It was on the sweet side and the marinade and flavor just perfect. Since I was trying to think of something different to cook with the chicken breast that I took out, I remembered this dish. Also remembered that I had some black pepper premix in my fridge, which resulted in my version of black pepper chicken. Got to say theirs still tasted better, but this was not far behind. :P The sauce was very good with rice.


Chicken breasts, sliced
Celery, about 3/4 cup - 1 cup
1 small carrot, sliced
1/2 small red onion
Black Pepper powder premix (or substitute w/ white pepper, black pepper & chicken stock granules)
Dark soy sauce
1 tsp. sugar


Heat oil in a wok. When heated, fry the chicken until cooked. Add in all the veggies, stir fry to cook the veggies. Add in a little water and all the seasonings. Fry until mixed well and serve.

Ching, thank you for more idea how to cook chicken breast. My oldest son prefer to have this part of chicken (skinless).

You're welcome Retno. I only buy boneless and skinless breasts to stir-fry so have to think of ways to cook it. I get bored by the same thing too. :)

Still has one PP to do for this month so have to blog so that I will have a place to put it. :P
I try to stick to 3:1 rule.

adding some curry leaves would enhanced the black pepper taste!
