Chicken with Bok Choy

This bok choy recipe is a companion to my Ginger Sesame Roast Chicken, but pairs well with most meats.


  • 3 small heads of bok choy or baby bok choy
  • 1 thinly sliced onion
  • 2 Tbsp olive oil
  • 1 tsp. sesame oil
  • 1 Tbsp soy sauce
  • Salt and pepper
  • 1/2 tsp. chili flakes (optional)


  1. Quarter bok choy, remove core, rinse thoroughly (if using baby bok choy, simply cut off about an inch at the bottom instead of quartering).
  2. Slice into 1-inch pieces
  3. Heat olive oil over medium heat in large sauté pan
  4. Add onion, cook until soft
  5. Add bok choy in batches, it will shrink, until it’s all in the pan and softened
  6. Add sesame oil, soy sauce and chili flakes if desired
