Black Pepper Chicken Stir Fry

Me and Jason used to go out every week for chinese food, we enjoy it that much. However now that I can make most of these type of dishes here at home we tend to go out way less these days.

Chinese food is typically healthy for you and this dish definitely is one of those healthy dishes. 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 the 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. I hope you give it a try there really isn’t much too it!

Stay tuned to this blog for more Healthy Chinese Recipes to come in the following months 🙂 and see below for some of them. 

This recipe does have a bit of a sauce that goes well served alongside some Jasmine rice, however if you are wanting to serve this as is feel free to add 1 tbsp of cornstarch to the sauce prior to serving and cooking that down a bit to thicken it up.


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. Also you may use any other vegetables you have on hand such as snow peas, red onions etc. Also you can replace the black pepper with white pepper if desired.

To make the Black Pepper Chicken Stir Fry:

In a bowl add the oyster sauce, soya sauce, rice vinegar, 2 tsp of black pepper and mix till combined and set


Slice up your chicken breasts and place in a bowl. Add with 1 tsp of black pepper, 1/2 tsp salt stir to combine and set aside.


Chop the broccoli, celery, green and red peppers, onion, garlic and ginger.


In a large frying pan, heat 1 cup of water and bring to a boil. Turn down the heat to medium and add the chopped the broccoli, celery, green and red peppers. Let the vegetables steam/cook for one minute on low heat then stir and cook just one more minute before removing from the heat to strain and set aside. "Your just wanting to steam the vegetables lightly"


In the same large frying pan, heat 2 tbsp of sesame oil and saute the chicken till cooked. Remove and set aside.


In the same frying pan, add 1 tbsp of oil along with the chopped onion. Cook the onion for one minute, before adding in the minced garlic and ginger saute another few minutes till fragrant. Then add back in the vegetables and cooked chicken.


Pour in the sauce and 1/4 cup of water and simmer on low heat, turning often for 5 minutes or until the sauce thickens up.


Season with salt to taste and serve with rice. Enjoy!

I halved the amount of salt and pepper and it was way t peppery. Is there a chance you meant tsp instead of tbsp.?

Good thing the hubby and I like pepper. Your original post of 3 T of pepper almost overwhelmed us. Other than that I was a good recipe

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 🙂
