Black Pepper Chicken

Black Pepper Chicken is a very popular dish here in Singapore. When we first came here, we would always order in hawker stalls. Since my children love it, I thought of prepping our own at home. I have two recipes actually, the first one is more of  the Asian type with light soy sauce, dark soy sauce, oyster sauce and of course with lots of black its peppery hot. The second one is done with plum sauce with lots of cracked black pepper. I didnt mention the onions yet, yes! there must be lots of onion rings. Black peppered sauce is readily available here, be it in a sachet, jar or bottle- but you know me I would rather make my own. Today I will be sharing with you my version with Plum Sauce.



1 kg chicken breast cut into cubes

2 tbsp rice wine

1/2 cup fresh ginger slices

1/2 cup shallots

5 cloves garlic

1/2 cup water

3 tbsp cornstarch

1 tbsp oyster sauce 

1 tsp salt

2 tsp sesame oil

1 cup oil

5 cloves garlic chopped 

2 large yellow onions cut into rings

3- 5 tbsp olive oil

2-3 tbsp coarse cut black pepper


1/2 cup plum sauce

2 tbsp tomato paste

2 tbsp apple cider vinegar

2 tbsp sugar

1 tbsp oyster cause

1 tbsp light soy sauce

1 tbsp dark soy sauce

1/2 cup chicken broth/water

For the sauce: Mix the above ingredients in a bowl. Set aside


Prepare the chicken, cut into cubes and add 2 tbsp rice wine. Set aside

In a blender or proccesor, blend the ff: ginger, shallots, garlic and 1/2 cup water.

Squeeze the  juice, then mix in the ff: cornstarch, oyster sauce, sesame oil and salt

Pour the mixture in the chicken, marinate for 1 hour.

Prepare the pan, and using the oil, fry the chicken cubes by batches, set aside. 

Keep  the remaining marinate to be used later

Using the same pan, heat the olive oil, slightly fry the onion rings, just until they loose. Set aside

Next fry stir fry the chopped garlic until fragrant

Add the coarse cut black pepper and stir fry for 5 seconds.

Pour the plum sauce mix, when the sauce boils, add the fried chicken cubes.

Continue to cook until well mixed. Garnish with fried onions

Served with rice and steamed vegetables. Enjoy!

This is so good, the meat is tender and the sauce is thick. The addition of onion makes the taste better and the smell is so enticingly good
