Ginger Chicken With Bok Choy

READY IN: 1hr 30mins
Recipe by mersaydees

I've had this recipe for so long that I was too young to make a note about its origins. I know two things about it, however; it came from a magazine (like Women's Day -- I didn't mind cutting the recipe out and taping it to a recipe card along along with the photo!) and it fed my early passion for cooking! Serve with lemon and lime wedges.

The first time I prepared it, it was very bland. The taste was nice, but it needed something else. With the leftovers I added a little cayenne red pepper. Weird ingredient, but it gave it some kick. Thanks!
