Mustard-Glazed Chicken with Arugula and Bok Choy

Photo: © Tina Rupp

Chef Way: Takashi Yagihashi glazes chicken legs in a mustard sauce; on the side are buttery bok choy and a generously dressed salad.
Healthier Way Opt for chicken breasts instead of legs, cook the bok choy in a minimal amount of oil (no butter) and dress the salad lightly with oil, soy sauce and rice wine vinegar.

Ingredients

  • 4 teaspoons dry mustard powder
  • 4 teaspoons water
  • 1/2 teaspoon mirin
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons low-sodium soy sauce
  • 3/4 teaspoon sugar
  • 1/4 cup canola oil
  • 4 skinless, boneless chicken breast halves (about 6 ounces each)
  • Salt and freshly ground pepper
  • 2 medium heads of bok choy, about 1 1/4 pounds halved lengthwise
  • 1 tablespoon rice vinegar
  • 1 5-ounce bag baby arugula

Preparation

  1. Preheat the oven to 425°. In a bowl, stir the mustard with the water, mirin, 1 teaspoon of the soy and 1/2 teaspoon of the sugar.
  2. In an ovenproof skillet, heat 1 tablespoon of the oil. Season the chicken with salt and pepper and cook over high heat until golden, 2 minutes. Flip the chicken and brush with the mustard; transfer to the oven and roast for 8 minutes, or until cooked through. Transfer the chicken to a cutting board and let rest for 5 minutes; slice. Wipe out the skillet.
  3. Meanwhile, steam the bok choy for 5 minutes. Drain; pat dry. In the same skillet, heat 1 tablespoon of the oil. Add the bok choy cut side down and cook over high heat, turning once, until browned, 3 minutes. Transfer to a platter; season with salt and pepper. Arrange the chicken over the bok choy.
  4. In a bowl, whisk the vinegar with the remaining oil, soy sauce and sugar; season with salt and pepper. Add the arugula and toss; arrange over the chicken and serve.
