    4 chicken thigh pieces with skin
    1 cup bell pepper, sliced
    1 cup red onion, sliced
    3 tbsp vegetable oil
    4 tbsp black pepper sauce
    2 tbsp oyster sauce
    2 tbsp soy sauce
    Dash of salt
    2 tsp black pepper
    2 cups white rice long grain


Heat the oil in a large pan.
Add the chicken thighs, with skin facing the pan - cook until the skin is golden brown.
Add dash of salt, black pepper over the chicken thighs, and then turn them over to cook the other side.
Once the chicken has cooked through (should take approximately 12-16 minutes on each side depending on the thickness of the piece), add the onion and green pepper and stir fry for 3-5 minutes.
Add the black pepper sauce, oyster sauce, soy sauce and 1 tsp black pepper.
Mix well and cover. Let cook for another 20 minutes.
While the chicken cooks, start the rice (follow directions on the package of the rice). Add a dash of salt for taste.
Once the rice is done, take a scoop, put a piece of chicken on it, scoop some of the delicious sauce over the rice and chicken and ENJOY!!

    This is a keeper! I removed the skin from the chicken and used low-sodium soy sauce - otherwise followed the recipe. I would reduced the amount of black pepper used by 1/2 teaspoon next time as this was *very* peppery. - 11/5/07

    We loved this. A bit salty, need to buy some low sodium soy sauce. We made our own black pepper sauce from an internet recipe-very easy. - 3/6/12

    I agree, this one is a keeper! Will definitely make again. However: I chose to use boneless skinless thigh fillets (worked just fine); 3 T. oil seemsa bit much-was kind of greasy; what the heck is black pepper sauce? Used red pepper sauce (tobasco) and it was good but would like to do it right. - 8/5/08

    Try that :) The oil is to make the black pepper sauce slightly gravy-like.
