Fast & Easy Dinner: Ginger-Sesame Chicken with Bok Choy and Mushrooms

Fast & Easy Dinner: Ginger-Sesame Chicken with Bok Choy and Mushrooms

I love making quick, Asian inspired dishes because usually they only involve cleaning one pan! For example, this recipe for a fragrant chicken dinner, cooks the meat, vegetables, and sauce all in the same pan. Each ingredient is sautéed individually before being tossed together with the sherry-sesame oil sauce. Served over a bed of steamed rice, this makes a hearty, delicious meal. To look at the recipe,

Ginger-Sesame Chicken with Bok Choy and Mushrooms

Ingredients

1/2 cup chicken stock or canned low-sodium broth
3 tablespoons low-sodium soy sauce
1 tablespoon sherry
1 tablespoon sugar
1 teaspoon cornstarch dissolved in 1 tablespoon water
1/2 teaspoon unseasoned rice vinegar
1/2 teaspoon Asian sesame oil
1/2 teaspoon crushed red pepper
3 tablespoons canola oil
3/4 pound oyster mushrooms, thickly sliced
3/4 pound skinless, boneless chicken breast halves, cut into 1-inch pieces
Salt and freshly ground pepper
3/4 pound bok choy, thickly sliced crosswise
1 small red bell pepper, cut into 3/4-inch pieces
2 tablespoons finely chopped fresh ginger
1 garlic clove, minced
Steamed rice, for serving

Directions

  1. In a medium jar, combine the chicken stock with the soy sauce, sherry, sugar, dissolved cornstarch, rice vinegar, sesame oil and crushed red pepper and shake well.
  2. In a large nonstick skillet, heat 2 teaspoons of the canola oil until shimmering. Add the oyster mushrooms and cook over high heat, stirring occasionally, until browned and tender, about 6 minutes. Transfer the mushrooms to a large plate.
  3. Add another 2 teaspoons of canola oil to the skillet. Season the chicken breast pieces generously with salt and pepper, add them to the skillet and cook over high heat, stirring occasionally, until they are golden and just barely cooked through, about 4 minutes. Transfer the chicken pieces to the plate with the oyster mushrooms.
  4. Add 1 tablespoon of canola oil to the skillet along with the bok choy and red pepper and cook over high heat, stirring occasionally, until crisp-tender, about 3 minutes. Transfer the vegetables to the plate.
  5. Add the remaining 2 teaspoons of canola oil to the skillet along with the ginger and garlic and cook, stirring, just until fragrant, about 1 minute. Return the chicken and vegetables to the skillet. Shake the sauce and add it to the skillet. Bring to a boil and simmer, stirring, until slightly thickened, about 1 minute. Transfer the chicken and vegetables to a bowl and serve.

Serves 4.

Something about bok choy just never caught on with me. I'll eat it, but I'd omit where I can.
