Asian-Style Braised Chicken - Away A While Recipe Favorites

From the kitchen of One Perfect Bite...If you enjoy food with an Asian flair, you are in for a treat. This week's Frugal Friday feature is for a simple, soy braised chicken that is light, absolutely delicious and as easy on the pocketbook as it is the waistline. The dish can be made with bone-in or boneless legs or thighs. If you use boneless chicken thighs, cooking time can be cut from 25 to 10 minutes and the dish can be on the table in near record time. You will want to avoid overcooking the bok choy. I think you will find it helpful to separate the stalks into piles of white and green. The crunchy portion of the stalks will need to simmer for two or three minutes, but the green and leafy portions need only a dunk and should cook just until they are wilted. I like to cook the rice I serve with this dish before I actually begin to cook the chicken. That way I can get the chicken to the table while the bok choy is still crisp and its leaves are a vibrant green. Do try this chicken. It is hard to argue with a dish that is cheap, easy and delicious. It is one of my favorite weeknight meals and I think your family will enjoy it as much as mine does. The recipe for the chicken can be found here.

Mary, This looks good although I prefer spicier versions personally. Chinese comfort food! Take Care, Big Daddy Dave
