Chicken & Bok Choy

High in protein and vitamin C this dish surprised us when it hit our tongues.  Not that we thought it’d be gross or anything, we just didn’t have terribly high expectations.  Succulent chunks of chicken, slightly crunchy bok choy, velvety shiitake mushrooms, a well-rounded flavor that’s slightly salty and powerful with ginger- this dish is lovely.

2 TBS chicken broth
1 cup chopped scallions
2 TBS fresh minced ginger
2 skinless, boneless chicken breasts, cut into bite-sized chunks
1½ cups sliced fresh shiitake mushrooms
4 cups chopped bok choy
2 TBS soy sauce
1 TBS rice vinegar
salt and pepper to taste

  • Heat broth in a skillet
  • When the broth begins to steam, add scallions and sauté for 2 minutes
  • Add the ginger and sauté for another minute
  • Add chicken and continue to sauté
  • After 2-3 minutes add the shiitake mushrooms and bok choy and cook for another 3-4 minutes
  • Add soy sauce, rice vinegar, salt, and pepper

We opted to have this over brown rice but it would also be great over noodles, or wrapped up in a tortilla.
