Added jalapeno for more kick and tonight I'm using zuchinni, mushrooms and yellow onions vs. bok choy serve over shirataki noodles(no cals or carbs) for a low carb/low cal meal...yummy

I made this recipe today and it was delicious. It was also very easy to make. Gave me something to do with all the basil that I have planted in my garden.

We enjoyed this recipe. I'd never worked with bok choy before and really enjoyed its fresh flavor. An FYI, if you are as stumped as I was on how to properly chop it, I prepped it like I would celery, but I used the leaves, too.

Next time, I'm adding sliced sweet red peppers. Thanks for the recipe!

This was really good. Everyone enjoyed it. The only thing I did different was I cooked the onion and garlic with the chicken then threw in bok choy. No need to use two different pans.
