This simple chicken and bok choy stir-fry is a colorful and nutritious Asian-inspired meal.  Seve with steamed white rice. 

How to Make It

Heat the oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Season the chicken with 1/4 teaspoon each salt and pepper and cook, tossing occasionally, until browned and cooked through, 4 to 6 minutes. Transfer to a plate.

Add the bok choy and 1/4 cup water to the skillet. Cover and cook until the bok choy is just tender, 3 to 4 minutes.

In a small bowl, combine the soy sauce, barbecue sauce, and scallions. Add to the skillet and bring to a boil. Return the chicken to the skillet and cook, tossing, until heated through, 1 to 2 minutes.

Came to this recipe as I was looking for a way to use some of the bok choy in this weeks CSA share. This fit the bill as I had all the ingredients and then some. I added 2 sliced yellow squash with the chicken since I had thrm and they needed to be used.I sliced up the bok choy for easier eating, and put the sliced stems in a couple of minutesd ahead of the leaves. I wouldn't give it raves, but it is good and quick and relatively healthy. Served over brown rice.

i added onion powder to the chicken. i also added fish sauce and sesame oil to the soy sauce/bbq/scallions mixture - really good.

i loved this!!! very tasty, but i would change a couple things next time. although the bok choy is beautiful in quarters, it needs to be cut smaller for my toddler to eat. & do not add too much kosher salt to the chicken because the soy sauce (& I even used low sodium) is very salty! this was great with steamed white rice. I WILL make again and again.

I would make it again, instead of the corn oil I used EVOO and I would stick to the low sodium soy sauce or it would be too salty.
