You’ll need:

Chicken Marinade:

  • 1 lb chicken breast, thinly sliced
  • 1 tablespoon soy sauce
  • 1 tablespoon rice vinegar
  • 1 teaspoon sesame oil
  • 1 teaspoon cornstarch
  • 1 teaspoon grated ginger

Stir Fry:

  • 2 tablespoons vegetable oil
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1-inch piece ginger, minced
  • 1 large onion, thinly sliced
  • 2 bell peppers (red and yellow), thinly sliced
  • 1 large carrot, julienned
  • 4 cups bok choy, chopped
  • 1 cup snap peas
  • 3 green onions, sliced
  • 1 tablespoon soy sauce
  • 1 tablespoon oyster sauce
  • 1 tablespoon hoisin sauce
  • 1 teaspoon chili paste (optional, for heat)
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • Sesame seeds, for garnish

To make:

  1. Marinate the Chicken:
    • Mix a bowl of soy sauce, rice vinegar, sesame oil, cornstarch, and grated ginger.
    • Add the thinly sliced chicken breast to the marinade, ensuring all pieces are well coated. Let it marinate for at least 15 minutes to allow the flavors to infuse.
  2. Prepare the stir-fry sauce:
    • Mix soy sauce, oyster sauce, hoisin sauce, and chili paste in a small bowl if you like a bit of heat. Set this sauce aside.
  3. Cook the Chicken:
    • Heat 1 tablespoon of vegetable oil in a large skillet or wok over medium-high heat.
    • Add the marinated chicken and cook until it’s no longer pink about 5-7 minutes. Once cooked, remove the chicken from the skillet and set it aside.
  4. Cook the Vegetables:
    • In the same skillet, add the remaining tablespoon of vegetable oil.
    • Sauté minced garlic and ginger for about 30 seconds until they become fragrant.
    • Add the sliced onion, bell peppers, and carrot. Stir fry these vegetables for about 3-4 minutes until they soften.
    • Next, add the chopped bok choy and snap peas. Continue cooking for another 2-3 minutes until the vegetables are tender yet crisp.
  5. Combine Everything:
    • Return the cooked chicken to the skillet with the vegetables.
    • Pour the prepared stir-fry sauce over the chicken and vegetables, stirring to coat everything evenly.
    • Let the mixture cook for 2-3 minutes to ensure everything is well combined and heated.
  6. Serve:
    • Transfer your bok choy stir fry with chicken to a serving dish.
    • Garnish with sliced green onions and a sprinkle of sesame seeds.
    • Serve hot, accompanied by steamed rice or noodles for a complete meal.
