After eating at Panda Express I became obsessed with their black pepper chicken...for the calories, it's SOOO tasty! I came across this recipe online. I entered all the info into the recipe calculator and for an approximately 7 oz serving it's only 281 calories!! I'll take it!! (btw, this nutrition info is available for everyone. It's labeled "Black Pepper Chicken")

what you need:

vegetable oil
1 - 1 1/2 lb chicken breast, diced into 1/2 - 3/4 inch cubes
2 cups celery, sliced on the bias
1 medium onion sliced
1 chopped cup green onions

marinade
1/4 tsp baking soda
1 tbsp rice vinegar/sherry
2 tsp soy sauce
1 tsp cornstarch
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp pepper

sauce
2 tbsp soy sauce
1 tsp oyster sauce
1 tsp cornstarch dissolved in 2 tbsp of water
1 tbsp rice vinegar/sherry
2 tsp ground black pepper

what to do:

1. heat up a pan over medium high heat. combine all the ingredients under marinade and soak the diced chicken in it for about 15 minutes.
2. cook the chicken until it's white, drain and put aside. Wipe the pan clean (this is to make sure nothing gets burned when you heat up the pan again) and heat up to medium high. combine sauce ingredients in a small bowl and set it aside.
3. drizzle oil on the pan again, saute onions, celery and green onions for about 1 minute. you want to keep the vegetables crunchy.
4. add the already cooked chicken and the sauce mixture into the pan and cook until the sauce thickens. serve over steamed rice.
