For a perfect side, serve quinoa or rice. To add a bit of crunch, top with some cashews and peanuts.

For my asian food lovers, I would recommend some of my favorite asian inspired recipes such as Beef and Broccoli with the Best Sauce, Black Pepper Chicken, the famous Asian Chicken Lettuce Wraps (P.F Chang’s Style), and Spicy Thai Basil Chicken.

In case you’re on a carb free diet, use monk fruit sweetener instead of honey and coconut.

Black Pepper Chicken Ingredient:

  • Chicken breasts: You can use skinless and boneless chicken thighs if you prefer them.
  • Bell pepper: Use different color bell pepper.
  • Onion: It’s best to only use yellow onions.
  • Sesame oil: For an asian taste, it can be substituted for canola, peanut, or olive oil.
  • Fresh ginger and garlic cloves: To get that unique spice and taste to your chicken.
  • Soy sauce: To keep it gluten-free use coconut aminos instead.
  • Cornstarch and rice vinegar: Mixing soy sauce, rice vinegar and cornstarch together makes the perfect component to thicken your black pepper sauce, while vinegar adds that acidic flavor that makes everything come together.
  • Honey and coconut sugar: Can be replaced with other sweeteners such as Monk fruit sweetener for less carbs, and granulated sugar.
  • Black pepper: Ground it at home. As store bought grounded spices tend to lose their true taste and flavor.
  • Chili pepper flakes: Only if you like a bit of spice. You can also use chili sauce instead.
  • Green onion and sesame seeds: To decorate (optional)

What to serve with black pepper chicken?

I usually serve a bit of rice with my black pepper chicken on top. Any rice can be used from basmati, brown, white or Jasmine. Quinoa and rice noodles also mesh well with this recipe if you’re not a rice lover. Or omit regular rice altogether and try my Garlic Butter Rice Recipe.
