    Finally, an Asian recipe that is not complicated and uses simple ingredients. I bought some Bok Choy at the supermarket and went online to find out how to make an interesting dish with it, and found this recipe. I didn't have garlic and I was too lazy to cut the carrots, so I followed the recipe without them and it still came out tasty and delicious. I also substituted pork for chicken breast. The exceptional flavor is all in the simple sauce. I cut the bokchoy white stalks into pieces and placed them into the fry pan after the chicken pieces so that they became soft first, before adding some leaves. I used "Sushi Chef" brand low sodium soy sauce, and my wine was Sutter Home White Zinfadel. I'm mentioning this because different brands might develop a different flavor. I didn't measure the ground ginger. I just sprinkled the top of the chicken and bok choy pieces with it, until lightly covered. When adding the sauce, it thickened immediately upon touching the fry pan. I served this on top of white rice, then topped the mixture with La Choy Chow Mein Noodles. It tasted like the food you would get from your local Chinese-American takeout. Amazing! I can see where this recipe would work with whatever meat or vegetables you desire, so next time it will be beef with broccoli, perhaps with almonds and red bell pepper. It was just so easy. Thank you, Parsley.

    Delicious light dish - I doubled the recipe and use 1/4 cup dry white wine and 1/4 cup Guewerztraminer wine - therefore left out the sugar. Really subtle flavors that the whole family enjoyed with rice.

    This was really just ok for us. Kind of one note flavor to it, reminded me of how some of those bagged freezer meals taste. If I make it again I'll be working with the sauce quite a bit to make it more well rounded.
