Garlic Black Pepper Chicken

The source of inspiration for my Garlic Black Pepper Chicken dish traces back to the renowned Taiwanese night market steak plates. These plates, bursting with flavors, provided the foundation for my creation.

Infused with garlic, buttery goodness, a hint of spice, and a touch of tanginess, the black pepper sauce is astonishingly addictive and pairs beautifully with a wide array of dishes.

While I’ve crafted a recipe for preparing Black Pepper Steak Sauce, my aim was to develop a SIMPLE and quick version that’s tailor-made for those busy weeknight dinners.

Creating my Garlic Black Pepper Chicken is a breeze, requiring just a handful of readily available ingredients you likely already have in your kitchen.

Gather soy sauce, oyster sauce, garlic, ketchup, black pepper, and honey to prepare the condiments.

The secret to achieving that delightful tanginess to complement the spiciness of the black pepper lies in the addition of ketchup.

Feel free to fine-tune the quantity of black pepper to align with your personal spice preferences, ensuring your dish suits your desired level of heat.
