How do you make Panda Express Black Pepper Chicken? If you ask me that, I would like to ask you, is this Panda Express Black Pepper Chicken hard to do? Let's take a look at the description of this dish on the official website of Panda Express: Marinated chicken, celery, and onions in a bold black pepper sauce.
I'll explain that the marinated chicken is cooked, fried with celery and onion, and finally mixed with black pepper sauce, that's it.
It's march now. I remember what my colleague Mark told me at the beginning of the year. He wants to do one thing in 2021. He doesn't need to do more. He can't finish more than one thing. It's about losing weight.
The target he set is not high, so he can lose 5 kg. At present, he is 90 kg.
Let me help him out and see what's right for him. He mainly doesn't want to go to the gym, doesn't want to eat diet pills, and doesn't want to eat less.
I initially suggested that he eat less fried food, no meal, only eat 80% full. After all, I'm not a professional weight loss coach. But that's what everyone says. After all, his requirements are not high, and it's OK to lose 5 kg in the whole year.
Now it's the spring of 2021, and Mark is still relatively self-binding. His favorite fried chicken wings, basically no longer eat.
But he told me that it's been three months. I haven't eaten fried chicken. I'm so greedy. I said you don't have to eat a mouthful, so the nutrition intake is not good. I don't think it's a big problem for you to have a meal by chance.
But don't eat fried chicken, either. Have a change. Like the chicken entrees in Panda Express. It's all fried, with fresh vegetables. It's not so greasy.
As a result, for dinner that day, Mark had to take me to the Panda Express next to the company for a chicken meal.
I helped him choose Black Pepper Chicken from Panda Express. I don't know. Just looking at the Black Pepper Chicken with lots of vegetables in it.

Now let's talk about the Panda Express Black Pepper Chicken. Maybe you would say, Black Pepper Chicken, it's very simple. Yes, it is. It's not only simple but also like Mark, my colleague.
The main ingredient of this dish is chicken. It doesn't matter whether it's breast or leg. For vegetables, choose celery and onion. Don't fry these two vegetables too well. Otherwise, we will lose the original intention of designing this dish. Both vegetables are crispy in taste.

Panda Express Black Pepper Chicken Review
Recently, I like the taste of black pepper. The protein content of chicken breast is high, and it is easy to be absorbed and used by the human body. It contains phospholipids which play an important role in human growth and development. It is one of the important sources of dietary phospholipids.
Chicken is a kind of tonic food. It is good for our spleen and stomach. It can also promote blood circulation. So, Black Pepper Chicken has become a special food I want to eat.
The chicken breast must be cut into thin slices and fried over high heat. When marinating chicken breast, salt, soy sauce, and black pepper sauce should be added. Pay attention to the amount of salt. There are skills in cooking. The skill of this dish is to marinate the chicken breast in advance.
