Spicy Chicken and Bok Choy Stir-Fry
Makes: 4  servings Prep 40 mins Cook 40 mins

Ingredients

  • 1 cup  long-grain brown rice
  • 1/4 cup  white wine
  • 3 tablespoons  no-salt-added tomato paste
  • 3 tablespoons  reduced-sodium soy sauce
  • 4 teaspoons  brown sugar
  • 2 teaspoons  cornstarch
  • 1 teaspoon  toasted sesame oil
  • 1/2 - 3/4 teaspoon  red pepper flakes
  • 1/4 teaspoon  salt
  • 4 teaspoons  canola oil
  • 1 pound  boneless, skinless chicken breasts, cut into bite-size pieces
  • 1 medium red onion, diced
  • 1 tablespoon  chopped garlic
  • 1 teaspoon  peeled, grated ginger
  • 1/2 cup  low-sodium chicken broth
  • 8 cups  chopped bok choy
  • 1/4 cup  roughly chopped unsalted roasted peanuts

Directions

1. Cook rice according to package directions. Meanwhile, whisk together wine, tomato paste, soy sauce, brown sugar, cornstarch, sesame oil, red pepper flakes and salt in a small bowl.

2. Heat a large skillet or wok over high heat. Add 2 teaspoons canola oil and swirl to coat. Add chicken in a single layer and cook, turning once or twice, until mostly browned, 4 to 6 minutes; set aside.

3. Add remaining canola oil, onion, garlic and ginger to skillet. Reduce heat to medium and cook, stirring often, until fragrant and onion begins to brown and soften, 2 to 4 minutes. Increase heat to high and add broth. Bring to a simmer, scraping up any browned bits. Add bok choy, cover and simmer, stirring once or twice, until bright green but still crisp, 2 to 3 minutes.

4. Add sauce, chicken and any accumulated juices to bok choy and continue cooking, stirring often, until chicken is cooked through and sauce is thickened, 3 to 5 minutes more. Sprinkle with peanuts.
