This chicken bok choy recipe is a great balance of macros and makes for a very satisfying chicken dinner!

Bok choy is a fabulously sassy little vegetable. It’s a variety of cabbage but it has those curvy little white hips and long, sultry, dark green leaves. It’s a very sexy veggie, believe it or not.

A serving of this Chicken Bok Choy Recipe sits on a white plate, ready to serve.

I can honestly say that this is one of my better creations. It’s a very engaging and gratifying dish. That addition of peanut butter punches you in the tongue with flavor, but doesn’t seem to actually impart the flavor of peanut butter. It’s magical!

And who knows, maybe I’ll find a reason to dress up with that lipstick and diamond necklace. They are supposed to be a girl’s best friend, right? Or was that the Coach handbag… hmmmm…

A healthy helping of this Chicken Bok Choy Recipe makes a great meal for chicken night! Here you can see all the bok choy mixed with the chunks of chicken and strands of bean sprouts.

Ingredients

  • 2 lb. boneless, skinless chicken breasts (cooked - see Fried Chicken link above if you need a recipe)
  • 1 large bok choy (cleaned and chopped)
  • 1 1/2 cups chopped yellow onion
  • 1 lb. bean sprouts (I used mung bean sprouts here)
  • 3/4 cup chicken stock (approximate measure - no sugar added)
  • 1 tbsp. peanut butter (no sugar added)

Instructions

  • In a pan, combine the bok choy, onion, bean sprouts and chicken stock. Cover and cook on high for 5-10 minutes or until the veggies have wilted and cooked down by almost half.
  • Remove lid and allow any liquid in the pan to cook down. A little is okay, but you don't want a lake.
  • Toss in the chicken and stir well.
  • Stir in the peanut butter. It will clump in the beginning, but if you keep stirring, it will disperse and cover everything nicely.
  • Remove from heat and allow to cool slightly.

  1. I have never tried Bok Choy, Tiffany! But, this looks FABULOUS! I will be trying this out! 😉 Thanks!

    1. The Gracious Pantry says:

      Mary – Glad I could inspire you to try something new! Enjoy!

  2. I am just a beginner with the eat clean process. I have been reading about it for months and am now ready to take the plunge. Congratulations on losing 44 pounds. My dream or goal is to lose 50 pounds.
    I love your recipes and all the great pictures, i love your website. I have just vistied you on facebook its all great and encouraging. I am trying to print your recipe but the pictures will not print. I love to go through the cooking process with the pictures and I cannot be on the internet while i am cooking. Is there something i am doing wrong?

    1. The Gracious Pantry says:

      Diane – Welcome to clean eating!

      I have the “printing pictures” option turned off because most people don’t appreciate being forced to use all their printer ink to print extra photos. It’s something I’m hoping to change in the near future. I hope to offer each reader the choice of printing photos or not. But this will take me a little time. So hang in there with me!

  3. I have to say… just found your blog and I LOVE it! I’m training for my first show this spring and just love finding clean AND delicious recipes! Keep up the great work, I will definitely be following along! =)

    1. The Gracious Pantry says:

      Melissa – I’m so happy to have you as a reader! Welcome!

      Your first show. How exciting! I wish you all the best!

  4. Yum! this dish looks great. I love bok choy… and I love your description of it – that was so cute. Great addition with the peanut butter!

    1. The Gracious Pantry says:

      Roxan – Thank you! I love bok choy too. Great stuff! Hope you enjoy the recipe!

  5. Funny, I was just looking at the Bok Choy in my fridge today and wondering what to do with it!

    By the way, I’d have to include peanut butter as another one of a girl’s best friends!

    Thanks for this and ALL your work keeping us healthy.

    1. The Gracious Pantry says:

      Carolyn – I agree. Peanut butter is FABULOUS! Enjoy the recipe!

  6. trude wofford says:

    this looks soooo good, I will be making this one soon!

    1. The Gracious Pantry says:

      Trude – I know you’ll love it!

  7. awesome recipe, just made that for my kids and my picky brother. They loved it. I wasn’t too sure about it but one bite is all it took. Thank you 😉

    1. The Gracious Pantry says:

      Alex – Yay! I’m so happy you enjoyed it! Clean eating can be soooo tasty!!

  8. I made this last night! I had never seen/tasted/bought/whatever bok choy in my life, and I was just a little nervous to eat it, cause it really does look and smell really really healthy, you know?… but I love it! I did burn the chicken a little… I guess that’s what having a playful two year old gets you sometimes 🙂 And tonight, I ate the leftovers on top of brown rice and that was even better! Thanks!

    1. The Gracious Pantry says:

      Becky – Fabulous!! And believe me, I know all about burning chicken! lol

  9. this sounds so good(brown rice sound like it would be good with this)…this clean eating is also new to me although i have always really watched staying away from anything processed. question>> in adjusting to eating this way i find myself really hungry about an hour after i eat the main meals…br, lnch, dnr…is this just an adjustment period or is there something i’m missing.?

    1. The Gracious Pantry says:

      Jolene – I would look at your calories. See how much you are consuming. You may need to spread your calories out between your meals a bit more. But if you are brand new to this, there may also be an adjustment period. Try to eat every 2-3 hours for a week. If you still have the same problem, then you need to eat more protein, or more calories overall.

  10. i am eating every 2-3 hrs, but i’ve read that you don’t need to count calories…am i misunderstanding that. sorry for confusion, i what to do this right.

    1. The Gracious Pantry says:

      Jolene – Some people do, some people don’t. It’s a personal choice. I do it on occasion just to be sure I’m on track. Some people do it daily, and some people don’t do it at all. It’s what works for you personally.

      Hope that helps!

  11. you’re awesome & so is your site…this is great!!! Thank You 🙂

    Janet – Fabulous! I hope you enjoyed it!

  13. I LOVE this recipe!! When I first tried it, it was the first time I had ever cooked with bok choy. Now this recipe is often on our table. I like to use sugar pod peas in place of the bean sprouts.

    1. graciouspantry says:

      Martha – I’m happy you’re enjoying it!

  14. Ambersharpe says:

    I roasted a chicken today to make stock so I would have chicken and stock and bought peanuts to make fresh peanut butter in order to make this tomorrow! I am so excited, I’ve never cooked with bok Choy or bean spouts before but am sure I will love it. I’m halving it as it is just me but will make a full batch if I love it. Will let you know, thanks for the recipe, I love your site!

    Tried this recipe for lunch today. It was a total experiment because I have never even taste bok choy before let alone cooked with it! BUT I am all about trying new things since I started this journey. Love the combinations. I love the crunch of the bok choy and bean sprouts. I like crunchy food when I’m really hungry LOL! Love the way the chicken turned out when I followed your other recipe of cooking it in the chicken stock without the fat! I added a few other things to the recipe to suit my own taste buds also. I found following the recipe to a T without any added salts and no fat it tasteed very much of the natural ingredients. Not a bad thing I justed a bit more today. I added 2 tbsp of peanut butter, 1 tbsp garlic (I love, love garlic and put it in almost eveyrthing) and I added 3/4 tsp of cayenne pepper to give it a bit of spice. Great recipe and a total keeper. I am desperate for low carb recipes and this fit the bill beautifully and was very satisfying.

      Rebecca – Thanks! I’m do glad you enjoyed it!

  17. Hi Tiffany
    I love your blog – you make clean eating look tasty! I haven’t made the full switch but I have tried a few of your recipes and my whole family has loved them (and they’re all picky eaters) still in the progress of changing everything to clean eating this recipe looks great can’t wait to try it. I’m having a hard time finding a clean eating plan that doesn’t result in weight loss as I want to maintain my current weight but just change my nutrition in favour of a cleaner lifestyle!! Can’t wait to see the benefits!!!

    1. The Gracious Pantry says:

      Allie – Thank you so much! I’m sure you’ll do great. 🙂

  18. Thoroughly appreciate this website and enjoying cooking again. After just a few weeks of clean eating, I’m already feeling better. Made this recipe tonight. First time cooking with bok choy and sprouts. I feel like a chef. I am a fan of peanut butter, but would like to try another flavor next time I make this recipe. I wanted to add soy sauce for flavoring, but know that’s a no-no. Any suggestions?

    Thank you for sharing your expertise.

    1. The Gracious Pantry says:

      Julia – Soy sauce isn’t necessarily off limits. If you can find an organic one that is low sodium, you’re pretty much set if you don’t mind including soy in your eating plan. (some people won’t go near it for other reasons) Otherwise, coconut aminos are very similar. I get mine at Whole Foods.

  19. This was amazing!! I’ve never tried bok Choy, but I needed out of my veggie rut. Even my husband loved it 🙂 thank you!!

    1. The Gracious Pantry says:

      Meghan – My pleasure! 🙂

  20. I’m excited to try this!! However I couldn’t find mung beans so I bought yellow beans ( like green beans but yellow). Would that flavor be ok? Also what about adding edamame? Wasn’t sure how it’ll mix with the peanut butter…

    1. The Gracious Pantry says:

      Colette – I think the edamame will go better with the peanut butter than the yellow beans will. But you can try it and see how you like it. Let me know!
