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 *

What you need :

  • 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.
