Directions

  1. Stir together the sea salt, black pepper, red pepper flakes, five-spice powder, and paprika in a shallow bowl until blended.
  2. Heat vegetable oil in a large skillet or wok over medium heat. Gently press both sides of the chicken pieces into the seasoning mix, and place into the hot skillet. Cook, stirring occasionally to flip the chicken pieces over, until the chicken is browned on both sides and the meat is no longer pink in the center, about 10 minutes. Stir in the broccoli and carrots, and cook and stir until the vegetables are tender, 10 to 12 minutes.

Less flavorful than I expected, although I didn't have five-spice powder available so I had to fudge around that. I added sliced onions, and also heated up some frozen rice in the skillet after removing the chicken & vegetables, so the rice picked up the seasonings left behind. Will probably make again.

yea this recipe is from a cookbook and these were the measuremeants written in there but i tend to just throw all the spices together in a small bowl without measuring them, just until the chicken is well coated. i also like to add a bit of cajun seasoning. another tip, if the pan/chicken is looking a little dry, add a splash of water mixed with some more of the spices and that may help with the flavour too.

This is definantly not the 'Salt and Pepper Chicken' I had at my Chinese restaurant here in San Diego. I am going to give it another try, but this time I am going to use only different kinds of pepper and the salt. The Chinese 5 Spice Powder might have been called for in this recipe, but I just feel it is the wrong spice. That spice might go well with some other dishes, but not this one.

Great, easy recipe. I used coarse black pepper, cut my chicken into bite sizes, and added sliced onion at the last 5 minutes of cooking. I would suggest buying and using the 5 spice powder. It gives it more flavor instead of just the pepper taste. The second time I used strips of beef instead of chicken.

This was tasty. The spices got kind of a roasted edge to them from being cooked embedded into the chicken. I let it cook 5 minutes on each side, added in the veggies and the popped a lid on top. I'll make this again.. easy and healthy
