Free Keto Meal Plan Ingredients:
  • 1 pound boneless, skinless chicken breasts or thighs, cut into bite-sized pieces
  • 2 tablespoons cooking oil (such as olive oil, avocado oil, or coconut oil)
  • 1 tablespoon black peppercorns, crushed
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 small onion, chopped
  • 1 red bell pepper, sliced
  • 1 green bell pepper, sliced
  • 2 tablespoons soy sauce or tamari (for a gluten-free option)
  • 1 tablespoon fish sauce
  • 1 tablespoon erythritol or a keto-friendly sweetener (adjust to taste)
  • 1/4 cup heavy cream or coconut cream (for a dairy-free option)
  • Salt to taste
  • Chopped fresh cilantro or green onions for garnish
Free Keto Meal Plan Instructions:
  1. Heat the cooking oil in a large skillet or wok over medium-high heat.
  2. Add the minced garlic and crushed black peppercorns. Sauté for about 1 minute, or until fragrant.
  3. Add the chicken pieces and cook until they are no longer pink, stirring occasionally. This should take about 5-7 minutes.
  4. Remove the cooked chicken from the skillet and set it aside.
  5. In the same skillet, add the chopped onion and bell peppers. Sauté until they become slightly tender, which should take about 3-4 minutes.
  6. Add the cooked chicken back into the skillet and stir to combine with the vegetables.
  7. In a small bowl, mix together the soy sauce (or tamari), fish sauce, and erythritol. Pour this mixture over the chicken and vegetables and stir well.
  8. Reduce the heat to medium-low, and add the heavy cream or coconut cream. Continue to cook and stir until the sauce thickens, which should take 2-3 minutes.
  9. Season the dish with salt to taste, but be cautious with the salt, as the soy sauce and fish sauce already provide some saltiness.
  10. Garnish with chopped fresh cilantro or green onions.
  11. Serve hot and enjoy your Keto Black Pepper Chicken!
This dish is not only low in carbohydrates but also rich in flavor, making it a great option for those following a ketogenic diet. You can adjust the level of spiciness by varying the amount of black pepper to suit your taste preferences. Free Keto Meal Plan
