Chinese Black Pepper Chicken

Chinese Black Pepper Chicken

by Nicole on November 27, 2011

I don’t often go to Chinese buffet but when I do one thing I discovered that is always a good decision is the Black Pepper Chicken. I only found it when I went to a buffet when I was first visiting my now hubby. It is definitely a shining star among the other choices without being too full of itself. I got the notion to figure out how to make it out of the blue and found a great replica on http://blogchef.net/black-pepper-chicken-recipe/. I was super excited and decided to give it a try. It was great!
