This is the real deal, just like at the all you can eat Chinese buffets. I found it on a web site called and Bobby is the poster. I tried it and it is so wonderful, I know you are going to love it!!! I put it at two servings, but there probably is enough for three, but heck why not load up the plate (don't share!!)

This was not at all like the Chinese Buffet Black Pepper Chicken I have tasted. Don't waste your time and ingredients on this one. It was terrible! The oyster sauce was overpowering. I cook a great deal and I ended up throwing most of it away.

This did not taste anything like the black pepper chicken at my local chinese buffet. I double checked to make sure I used the right ingredients, and I did. I used Sake and not rice wine because it was very hard to find. Nobody ate it, but I guess it was worth a try.

An incredibly delicious recipe! I never figured it would be as good as that I had tasted at the buffet, but this is even better. I had no white pepper, so I used all black pepper. I think I will add some bell pepper strips next time, too. Thank you so much, Chill!
