Quick and easy one pot black pepper chicken recipe, made with simple ingredients on stovetop. This 30 minute meal is spicy and inspired by Chinese flavors.
Heat oil in a nonstick pan over medium high heat.
Add onion, ginger garlic and saute until golden brown.
Add soy sauce, oyster sauce (optional), vinegar, black pepper, salt, red chili flakes, cornstarch and water. Mix thoroughly.
Note: You can dissolve the cornstarch in the broth or water and then pour that mixture into the pan but I usually don't do it.
Add the chicken.
Cover and cook for 10-12 minutes.
Uncover and cook on medium high heat so as to reduce the liquid a bit.
Add the green peppers and cook for about 2 minutes.
Serve with rice and enjoy!
