Black Pepper Onion Chicken

A simple and easy to prepare lazy mum's version of black pepper onion chicken. It turns out yummy! The wonderful aroma from the green chillies and onion really makes this dish mouth-watering. The dish looks pale as i have omitted the dark soy sauce as my son is trying to avoid taking dark soy sauce due to a fresh scar on his face. Well, color can be deceiving, it taste just as good, anyway. Try it * v *

  • 1 piece of chicken breast meat - cut into small think slices
  • 2 big onions - cut into slices
  • 2 green chilly - cut into slices
  • grounded black pepper - amount is your choice
  • 1 Tbs cornflour
  • 1 Tbs oyster sauce
  • 1 Tbs dark soy sauce
  • 1 Tbs chinese cooking wine
  • salt to taste

Simple Process :

  • Marinate the chicken meat with the cornflour, oyster sauce, dark soy sauce and cooking wine for 30 minutes before cooking
  • Heat the oil in the pan, saute the onion and green chilly till aromatic
  • Add in the marinated chicken meat and stir fry till chicken meat turns white, sprinkle the grounded black pepper and mix well
  • Add a little water, lower the heat, and allow the chicken to simmer till cook
  • Ready to serve within 20 minutes of cooking time.

Baked Salted Herbal Chicken

Look at this delicious baked chicken. Yes, it is simple and easy to prepare especially for those who enjoy no fuss cooking and short preparation time. All you need to do is just clean and drain dry the chicken, rub it with salt all over and let the chicken sit on some fine gingseng roots or alternatively I do use "tangkwei" (another blood nourishing herbs), sometimes. Then, wrap it up well with tin foil or baking paper.

Heat the oven at 250 degrees celsius and baked the wrapped chicken for 45 minutes.....that's it!

When it is cooked, you get to smell the beautiful aroma of the herbal chicken.

I have it served as a set meal for the family. I served it with Garlic Fried Rice...Look at this.... :))

Simple and a delicious Set Meal for the family, try it!
