Sauteed chicken & bok choy

One of the reasons we joined the CSA last year was that we hoped it would help us to cook more during the week. When you have a load of veggies just sitting there slowly wasting away there is a certain need to use them. One item we received a lot of last year was bok choy and the first box from our CSA last week contained 5 or 6 small heads. I thought of a stir fry with chicken. An search found this recipe which I used as a starting point.

Ingredients:
• 5 TBS low-sodium chicken or vegetable broth
• 1 cup chopped scallions
• 2 TBS fresh minced ginger

• 4 skinless, boneless chicken thighs, cut into bite-sized pieces
• 1½ cups sliced fresh shiitake mushrooms
• 4 cups chopped bok choy
• 2 TBS soy sauce
• 1 TBS rice vinegar
• salt and white pepper to taste
• pinch of red pepper flakes

Directions:

  1. Heat broth in a stainless steel skillet.
  2. When broth begins to steam, add scallions and Healthy Saute for 2 minutes.
  3. Add ginger and continue to sauté for another minute.
  4. Add garlic and sauté until flavorful.
  5. Add oil and heat for 15-30 seconds. Add chicken and continue to sauté.

We had this with some white rice. It came out quite well.
