This stir fry is packed with plenty of fibrous vegetables such as broccoli, peppers, onions and celery. Which is all sauteed in a delicious asian sauce that is sure to curb your take-out craving for tonight!

Me and my partner used to go out every week for chinese food, we enjoy it that much.

However now a days, I like to make these type of dishes at home. It not only saves us a ton of money it is also much healthier i’m sure. 

Chinese food is typically healthier for you than most foods and this dish definitely is one of those healthy dishes. It is packed with lean protein = chicken breasts. And lots and lots of vegetables.

So if your trying to get your family to eat healthier these days, then I encourage you to try this recipe tonight and you may not have to try anymore.

It’s so darn delicious that i’m confident it will be one of those recipes that you will want to keep in your recipe book. And truthfully this is the best homemade Black Pepper Chicken Stir Fry that we have tried.

How can I make claims like that? Well first off this is one of my favorite asian dishes and so I have tried many different recipes throughout the years.

Not to mention I have ordered this dish at many of the asian restaurants. The only difference between my dish and those in the restaurants, is that they tend to bring it on sizzling hot plate.

With just two chicken breasts you can feed a family of four easily. So what are you waiting for? By the time you dial up your local restaurant, you can have this delicious and authentic stir fry on the table.

I like to serve this with jasmine rice on the side, and will use a mini rice cooker to cook the rice. Just set it and it will be ready when the dish is completed. 

This recipe does have a bit of a sauce, so serving this dish alongside some Jasmine rice is always good. However if you are wanting to serve this as is feel free to add 1 tbsp of cornstarch to the sauce vs 1 tsp. This will help to thicken it up even more leaving very little sauce.

Looking for more Chinese style recipes? See the video below for some ideas and or search the blog’s Skip The Takeoutsection for some more inspiration. 

Meal Prep Idea: Make enough to create a few meal prep bowls for the week ahead

Notes: Make it with shrimp, beef or tofu too. You may use any other vegetables you have on hand such as snow peas, red onions etc will work well too. Also you can replace the black pepper with white pepper if desired. And add more water to create more of a sauce if putting this over rice.

I thought this was a really good recipe and tasted delicious! The only thing I would change the next time I make it is to add some cornstarch and water near the end of the cooking time to thicken the sauce. I found the sauce to be quite runny.

Thank you for the feedback Carrie, that is a great idea! I will make a note of that, I do serve this recipe with rice and find that sauce goes well with that. However if someone just wants this as is. Adding some cornstarch would be a good trick 🙂

Ah, thank you very much!

I do indeed want to try the recipe, so I’m glad the instructions are back. How weird that they’d just poof from the page.

Thank you for sharing your recipes, and have a good day. ^_^
