Bok Choy with Ground Chicken Stir Fry Recipe

What you’ll learn:

  • Simple, 15 minute stir fry recipe for baby bok choy
  • Use any ground meat (chicken, pork, turkey, beef)
  • Step by step video

This is one of our “house recipes” – something I make quite often and practically with my eyes closed. There’s no measurement, no weighing, just what you’d call a dump-n-stir, except this is more like a throw-in-n-stir-fry.

Bok Choy with Ground Chicken Stir Fry Recipe

The great thing about stir fries is that a little meat goes a long ways. Just 1/2 pound of ground chicken will feed 4 people. You can sub with any type of ground meat – I like chicken best.

If you don’t have baby bok choy, sub with Napa Cabbage, regular Bok Choy, or any leafy vegetable like kale!

  • Lower heat to medium-high and add green onion, ginger and garlic and stir for 30 seconds or until fragrant. Add bok choy to wok with the water, toss well to coat with the oil, aromatics and chicken.
  • Cover the wok. Allow to cook for 2 minutes or until the bok choy is crisp-tender.
