Stir Fried Bok Choy with Chicken



This is one of my easy all in one dish. All nutritious and protein into one bowl. I used the regular bok choy, the one with darker green leaves for this stir-fry. My friend told me the darker the green leaves in a veggie, the better it is for us. I know for a fact that leafy greens are good for us, so I always make sure that I serve lots of green leafy greens in my family.


Ingredients:


  • 3 heads of regular bok choy (darker green leaves), separated, washed and cut into small pieces with steams and leaves separated.
  • 1/4 red bell pepper, cut into small pieces
  • 1 small carrot, cut
  • 2 cloves of garlic, chopped
  • 1 chicken breast, sliced and marinated in salt, rice wine, sesame oil, white pepper and cornstarch
  • 2 Tbsp. oyster sauce
  • 1/4 cup water

Method:

In a wok, heat up oil. When hot, add in marinated chicken pieces, stir-fry until half cook, add in garlic, fry for a while. Add in steams part of bok choy, carrot and bell pepper. Stir-fry until chicken is cooked, add the leaves of bok choy and stir-fry well. Add water and season with oyster sauce.

Looks delicious! Dark leafy greens usually have a higher count of iron, calcium, and fiber than other greens. There are also lots of other vitamins that I can't remember the names of, but all in all - great choice!

I prefer to blanch the bok choy and toss with dash of oyster sauce & fried shallot oil. Will try your stir-fried method one day.

I prefer this type of bak choy than the smaller one. I find this one much crunchier.
