Bell Pepper Chicken Recipe

5 fresh button mushrooms
8 oz chicken breast, cut into pieces
2 tablespoons oil
5 slices ginger
1/2 green bell pepper, sliced
1/2 red bell pepper, sliced


1/2 tablespoon Shaoxing wine
1/2 tablespoon corn starch
1/4 teaspoon sesame oil
Pinch of salt


1 tablespoon oyster sauce
1/2 tablespoon Shaoxing wine
1/2 heaping teaspoon sugar
1/4 teaspoon sesame oil
1/2 teaspoon cornstarch
Pinch of salt
3 dashes white pepper


Marinate the chicken with all the ingredients in the Marinade, for 15 minutes.

Mix all the ingredients in the Sauce in a bowl, stir to blend well.

Heat up 1 tablespoon of the oil in a wok and stir fry the chicken until the surface turns opaque, or about 80% cooked. Dish out and set aside.

Heat up the remaining 1 tablespoon of the oil and stir fry the ginger until aromatic. Add in the the bell peppers and stir-fry until you smell the peppery aroma. Transfer the chicken into the wok and stir to combine well with the bell peppers. Add in the mushroom and the Sauce (stir it before using so there is nothing settles at the bottom), stir fry continuously until the sauce thickens and the chicken is completely cooked. Dish out and serve immediately.

  1. This is super duper easy. These days I need dishes like this as I find I’m getting pretty tired after a long day at work. Makes it easier. Thanks!

    Made this last night for dinner, but doubled the recipe since I was serving a family of five. It turned out really really well! I was surprised since I didn’t think the sauce would be enough. The chicken was juicy and while my husband complained it wasn’t spicy enough, (orang Melayu, they want everything to be loaded with chili hehe) I was thrilled my three kids ate it up. Thanks again!

    P.S. please consider adding more traditional Malay recipes since they are definitely a family favorite.

    Hi! This may seem like a stupid question but what do you mean by “5 slices of Ginger”? I’m sorry… I’m a complete beginner… BTW I just love your website! :)

    I was just wondering how big the slices were supposed to be- will figure it out. Thank you for writing back. :)

    I just made Pepper Chicken for the first time last night. Wow! So incredibly EASY to prepare–took 15 minutes to prepare marinade and the sauce. The aroma from the marinating chicken alone was delicious; the finished product smelled, looked and tasted like a dish from a Chinese Restaurant. My only suggestion would be to mince the ginger root. It was not good to bite into a ginger slice, too spicy. Otherwise I give this recipe A+++++
