Prep Time: 15 minutes
Cook Time: 30 minutes
Servings: 4
Other leafy greens, such as Swiss chard, kale or spinach, may be used in place of the bok choy. Chop the leaves coarsely and cook just until tender. The spinach only needs several seconds to cook.

Ingredients:

  • 1 1/2 cups water
  • 1 cup soy sauce
  • 1/4 cup rice wine or dry sherry
  • 2 Tbs. firmly packed brown sugar
  • 1/2 tsp. Chinese five-spice powder
  • 2 Tbs. minced fresh ginger
  • 3 green onions, thinly sliced
  • 2 lb. skin-on, bone-in chicken thighs or breast
      halves
  • 1/2 lb. bok choy, quartered lengthwise
  • 2 Tbs. honey
  • 1 Tbs. Asian sesame oil
  • Steamed rice for serving

Directions:

In a Dutch oven or deep fry pan over high heat, combine the water, soy sauce, wine, brown sugar, five-spice powder, ginger and green onions. Bring to a boil, then reduce the heat to medium-low. Submerge the chicken pieces, skin side up, in the liquid and simmer gently for 8 minutes. Turn the pieces over and continue to simmer until the chicken is opaque throughout when tested with the tip of a knife, about 8 minutes more.

Using tongs or a slotted spoon, transfer the chicken to a serving platter and cover with aluminum foil to keep warm. Bring the braising liquid to a boil over medium heat, add the bok choy and cook until tender, about 3 minutes. Using tongs or a slotted spoon, transfer the bok choy to the platter, arranging it around the chicken.

Bring the braising liquid to a boil over high heat and boil until reduced by half, about 5 minutes. Stir in the honey and sesame oil. Pour over the chicken and bok choy and serve with steamed rice. Serves 4.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Needs more cook time!!! This was tasty, but as I'd expected, the chicken was not done after 8 minutes of cook time on each side. I let it simmer for an hour. I'm wondering if this was supposed to have been put into a pressure cooker to braise... Only change I made was to use seasoned rice vinegar instead of rice wine. Also, I added a minced chili

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Show off your skills kinda meal This dish was full of flavor, simple ingredients yet bold in flavor. I first sautéed the chicken thighs in sesame oil, I wanted them to be browned before I dropped them into the cooking liquid. I let the whole thing slow simmer stove top for about 1 1/2 hours chicken was to die for! I served with side of bok choy, snow peas and jasmine rice. - I thickened the sauce with a little cornstarch. Also added a little garlic chili paste for some heat. Thank you WS!
