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
