Probably this could be the easiest black pepper chicken to prepare in a jiffy.  It is a good dish to serve as One Dish Meal with the tasty sauce which is not too spicy.  You can use green/red capsicum to replace the green/red chillies.  You can also use yellow onions instead of Bombay onions.  It is all okay.

3 deboned chicken thighs – cut into bite size pieces


1/2 tbsp each light soy sauce, oyster sauce, sweet soy sauce and 1 tsp ground black pepper
