(healthier) recipe of the week: black pepper chicken

so.  i made this up on the fly after finding a whole lot of black pepper chicken recipes with unnecessary ingredients in them...or WITHOUT black pepper.  um, hello?

so, this is all kind of thrown together.  there were three of us eating, so i only used 6 chicken breast tenderloins.  i'd say a good rule of thumb is to have 2 tenderloins per person.  SO, i'll pretend that there were 8 tenderloins and say that the recipe makes 4 servings ;-)

black pepper chicken

8 boneless skinless chicken tenderloins
1 red onion, halved and sliced thinly
1/2 green bell pepper, sliced thinly
3 large or 4 regular scallions, chopped
black pepper to taste (*generous helping though)
soy sauce to taste
sesame oil for skillet
cooked rice to serve over 

marinate the chicken in soy sauce (i added gyoza sauce to this mix)

add red onion slices to oil in skillet

followed by bell peppers

and green onions

and finally a generous amount of freshly cracked black pepper
cook mixture down for a few minutes (5-8)

cube marinated chicken

and add to mixture

add in soy sauce for flavoring 
(i used it pretty sparingly so that it was lighter and you could taste the pepper)

cook until chicken is fully cooked and then serve over rice.
