Pepper Chicken

Pepper Chicken

What is so unique about this dish is that the wonderful flavor of freshly ground black pepper added to the chicken at different stages of cooking. I just love the flavor and taste of freshly ground black pepper. Well, black pepper is  spicy, but who cares? When chicken is cooked together with a perfect masala mix which is predominant of black pepper. If you don’t believe then you should definitely try this at home and experience it by yourself!
