Sesame Chicken and Bok Choy Stir Fry

Lots of veggies in this and I usually double this recipe because it doesn't serve very many people.  I cut up some potatoes and baked them and had some quinoa and asparagus as my sides and it was amazing!  Sorry for the lack of a picture, maybe I will update this post the next time I make this recipe.

Sesame Chicken and Bok Choy Stir Fry

3/4 pound(s) uncooked boneless skinless chicken breast(s), cut crosswise into 1/2-inch to 3/4-inch strips   

2 Tbsp cornstarch   

2 tsp canola oil, divided   

1 tsp dark sesame oil, divided   
1 small uncooked onion(s), cut into thin strips   

1 Tbsp ginger root, fresh, grated   

1 Tbsp minced garlic   
5 cup(s) uncooked bok choy, sliced crosswise 1/4-inch to 1/2-inch thick   

2 Tbsp water   

2 Tbsp low sodium soy sauce   

  • Toss chicken with cornstarch in a medium bowl until coated.
  • Heat a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Add 1 teaspoon canola oil and 1/2 teaspoon sesame oil. Add chicken and stir-fry until browned and cooked through, about 4 minutes; remove to a plate.
  • Heat remaining teaspoon canola oil in same skillet. Add onion and cook over medium-high heat, stirring frequently, until golden and almost tender, about 4 minutes.
  • Stir in ginger and garlic; cook a few seconds until fragrant.
  • Add bok choy and water; stir-fry over medium-high heat until bok choy is crisp-tender, about 4 minutes.
Add chicken back to skillet; pour in soy sauce and cook, stirring, until chicken is hot, about 1 to 2 minutes. Sprinkle with remaining 1/2 teaspoon of sesame oil; toss to coat. Add a few tablespoons more water if you prefer a thinner sauce. Yields about 1 cup per serving. 

Gratitude Journal
Today I am thankful for my house.  I am thankful that we were able to buy a house two years ago and I am thankful that we have a place to call our own and that protects us from the elements.  Since it has decided to be winter in the middle of May and it is freezing cold outside right now, I have been very thankful for the shelter we have.  Also, we just have an amazing house.  We spend a lot of time here and in our neighborhood and I am grateful we were able to afford a place in such a great location an neighborhood.
