  • Author: Chefjar
  • Total Time: 25 mins


This restaurant-style Chinese Black Pepper Chicken is delicious, quick and very easy to make. Tastes a million times better than Panda Express black pepper chicken.


  • 2 pounds ( 1 kilogram) skinless and boneless chicken breasts, cut into thin strips
  • 3 tablespoons low sodium soy sauce
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons fresh ginger, minced
  • 2-3 tablespoons cornstarch
  • 2 tablespoons toasted sesame oil
  • 2 tablespoons rice vinegar
  • 5 tablespoons vegetable oil
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons fresh ground black pepper
  • Salt as needed


  • In a small bowl combine the chicken with soy sauce, fresh ginger, rice vinegar, cornstarch and sesame oil. Allow to marinate for 10 minutes.
  • In a large non-stick skillet heat 5 tbsp. of vegetable oil over high heat, add the chicken and cook until brown, about 6 minutes, stirring occasionally. You might need to cook chicken in batches.
  • Once the chicken is cooked through, add the celery and onion and cook for 1 minute over high heat, then sprinkle with black pepper and give a good stir to combine everything.
  • Serve immediately over jasmine rice.



* Do not to use black pepper powder. It will overpower the dish.
