New Spin on Chicken

We tried a new dish last night that was so easy to make.

We found some chicken breasts on sale this week, so I bought enough for two separate meals.

One dish needed the chicken to be already cooked, so I figured I would cook what I needed with the dish I was making for tonight.

Sounds good in theory, but it didn't work out that way.

The new dish I tried was liked way too much to let the rest of it go into another recipe.

We made Black Pepper Chicken.

After cutting the breasts into thin strips, I let them marinate in soy sauce for about 1/2 an hour.

They were then added to the wok that already contained onions, garlic, and a tad of oil.

The secret to this dish is the freshly ground black pepper - a lot of it.

I just kept adding it in as the chicken cooked - grinding the peppermill right over the pan.

After the chicken finished cooking, we added soy sauce and about a teaspoon of sugar.

I was surprised at how good this chicken was - tender, moist, and oh so tasty!

A new, healthy addition to our "boring" meals.
