Black Pepper Chicken

A flavorful, simple and easy black pepper chicken recipe prepared using few basic ingredients and coarsely grounded black peppercorns which turned out amazingly delicious.

Black Pepper Chicken is one of my family’s favourite and a regular dish in my kitchen. This delicious and healthy side dish is easy to prepare with limited ingredients and doesn’t require much of your time.

Some of the benefits of Black pepper are it is considered to be good for digestion, it prevents stomach trouble, it has antibacterial properties, it relieves cold and cough, it speeds up metabolism and promotes weight loss, it helps the body to absorb nutrients from other food better.

Black pepper chicken is a dish which is flavorful and slightly spicy in taste. The lovely flavour and a hint of hotness from the black pepper makes the dish aromatic and amazingly delicious. I recommend to use freshly grounded black peppercorns for the authentic flavour and taste.
