1-½ pounds boneless, skinless chicken breasts, cut into cubes

1-½ teaspoons freshly ground black pepper
1-inch fresh ginger root, peeled and finely chopped
2 cloves garlic, peeled and finely minced
3 tablespoons lite soy sauce, divided (optional, coconut Aminos, Tamari or Bragg Liquid Aminos)
3 tablespoons white vinegar, divided
1 tablespoon coconut palm sugar or honey
2 tablespoons olive oil

How to make One-Pot Black Pepper Chicken

Step 1: In a medium-sized bowl, whisk half of the soy sauce, half of the vinegar, and the sweetener.

Step 2: Add in the chicken and toss to thoroughly coat. Chill the marinate for 30 minutes in the fridge.

Step 3: Heat oil to a skillet over medium-low heat. Sautee the garlic and ginger for 30 seconds or until the garlic is golden and fragrant. Make sure not to burn the garlic.

Step 4: Add in the marinated chicken including the sauce and cook for about 3 minutes.

Step 5: Place the bell pepper strips along with the remaining soy sauce and vinegar into the pan. Add in some pepper, stir, and continue cooking for about 10 minutes or until the peppers have softened and the chicken is thoroughly cooked.

Step 6: Once done, remove from heat and serve immediately. Spoon your cooked chicken over or alongside some brown rice or quinoa.
