Expert Tips

Bok choy is a leafy green vegetable that resembles celery in shape but has white stalks and dark green leaves. The leaves are often separated and added after the stalks are cooked, to prevent overcooking.

Add 1 cup cubed cooked chicken or turkey with bok choy stems in step 2. Continue as directed.
