Bok Choy and Chicken

"So yummy. So easy. So fast. Healthy, too! One of my mom's easy dinners. Bok choy is a leafy vegetable that tastes kind of like a cross between lettuce and cabbage, but also with a flavor of its own."

Ready In:




  • Wash bok choy very well.
  • Slice across the leaf at about 1/2 inch intervals.
  • Discard the bottom when you get to the part with no green on it.
  • Drain thoroughly.
  • Chop chicken breasts into 1/2 to 1 inch chunks.
  • Heat oil in a wok or large, high-sided frying pan with a lid over medium heat.
  • When oil is hot, add garlic.
  • Saute for a few seconds, then add chicken.
  • Saute until slightly browned all over (no pink showing on the outside).
  • Add bok choy and stir-fry for about half a minute, until just wilted.
  • Add soy sauce and sherry.
  • Cover and cook until chicken is done; about 10 to 15 minutes.
  • Serve over steamed white rice with soy sauce or teriyaki sauce.

    We got a bunch of Bok Choy with our CSA share and I had no idea what to do with it. Needed something simple and quick, and this fit the bill. Even the kids liked it. I did need to add more garlic though, but overall was a hit. :)

    So quick and easy and tasty! I did add some red bell pepper to it too.

    4/15/08 I was looking for a new way of using Bok Choy, which was simple, fast and tasty. This was definitly it. I disagree with Chris's review, this is a very tasty recipe and I will cook this again. The only slight suggestion I would make is to use Lite Soy Sauce. For health reasons as well as taste, the soy sauce was just a tad strong. Thank you for posting.

    I was looking for a bok choy recipe and thought I would give this a try. It was OK, and I might serve it again, but I've had better recipes. It was quick and easy, though, and that's a plus on a hot summer day!
