Chicken Bok Choy Stir-Fry

I am constantly testing new recipes for stir-fry. It’s one of those dishes that uses so many veggies and has endless variations. This week in my CSA bag, I got two lovely heads of bok choy. I figured a stir-fry was perfect for this. I really love the CSA produce. You can’t buy produce that fresh in the store. So I wanted to make a simple stir-fry that really let the bok choy shine. I just used chicken, bok choy, and red pepper.

In a small bowl, whisk together ingredients for the sauce and set aside. Heat a wok on medium heat. Saute garlic and ginger for about a minute. At this point, bring a large pot of water to boil so it’s ready for the soba noodles. Add the chicken to the wok and cook until no longer pink in the middle, about 7 minutes. Remove the chicken from the pan and add the bok choy along with half the sauce. Cook about 5 minutes until the bok choy starts wilting down. In the meantime, boil soba noodles for 3 minutes. While the noodles cook, add the chicken, pepper, and remaining sauce to the wok. Once noodles are done, use your tongs to lift the noodles out of the water and place directly into the wok. Stir all the ingredients together and cook for about 2 more minutes so the flavors combine. Serve topped with toasted sesame seeds. Enjoy!
