These days, I think I am getting lazy, always on a look out for simple, easy recipes.  Is it that age is catching up or my concentration has diverted to other matters or perhaps, prices of food ingredients have escalated and I have to be careful not to waste them.
Anyway, I am happy that the simple and easy recipes which I tried have turned out to be good and tasty eventhough the ingredients/seasoning used are few.  Only 4 steps to follow for this recipe.
This recipe is a quick, simple and easy stir fry chicken which is not difficult to prepare yet overly tasty and healthy, too. It is fragrant and aromatic with the black pepper added. The capsicum is sweet and not spicy at all. Nice dish to serve with plain white rice.
Recipe adapted from Yum Yum Magazine No. 78 with slight modifications
300 gm chicken breast meat – sliced or cubed
¼ tsp salt
1 tsp light soy sauce
Dash of pepper
2 tbsp water
1 tbsp cornstarch
½ tsp salt
½ tbsp ground black pepper
2 tbsp water
1 small red capsicum – seeded and cut chunks
2 tbsp oil
some spring onions sections for garnishing
  1. Combine chicken with marinade, mix well and season for 30 minutes.
  2. Heat up a non stick wok with oil, pan fry chicken until 90% cooked.
  3. Push aside, add in capsicum, seasoning and stir fry over high heat until the sauce has dried up.
  4. Dish up to serve.

Hi Kimmy! Eh, me too the same LOL! Lately so lazy. Did not even bake. Cham liao. Anyway, this fried chicken in black pepper sauce should be very tasty. The one from the chap fan shop I tried recently was quite horrible. Nothing beats our own cooking. LOL!

Hi there, I just found your blog. I want to thank you for sharing your recipes. It helps me so much to decide what to cook. I don't really know what to cook each week as family members have their own preferences. But at least now, I can stir fry something of different flavours without thinking too hard. Thanks again. Regards from Canada (Penangite at heart)

Hi Emily, there are people who did comment why I share simple dishes but when there is time constraint, these simple recipes come in handy. We get to enjoy good food in the comfort of our homes.

Hi Phong Hong, simple enough that Chap Fan stalls have this kind of food. Don't forget when you get this kind of dishes from them it is so much more that you have to pay. When we have the time, why not do it at home for the family's sake.

Hi Kimmy,
Your chicken dish looks very delicious! I, myself, have been feeling lazy at preparing meals these two weeks. Simple, hearty and delicious, that is just what we need on lazy days!

Hi Joyce, there are quite a number of simple yet tasty recipes in Yum Yum magazines. Rather helpful if you are looking for Oriental/Chinese food recipes. It's economical too to prepare them at home.
