This a delicious recipe that was inspired by a recipe I received from Home Chef. The difference in my version is that I used jalapeño instead of a Fresno Chile and it has chicken instead of salmon. It makes 2 servings but if you want more just double it.

  1. Wash you produce.
  2. Preheat oven to 425.
  3. Remove the dry or discolored outer leaves of the bok choy and discard them. Cut the bok choy into 1/2" by 1/2" pieces. Coarsely chock leaves.
  4. Peal and trim tips from the carrots. Slice diagonally into 1/4" slices.
  5. Cut jalapeño into 1/4" slices. Add as many seeds as to your taste (spicy).
  6. Trim and discard the root section of the green onions. Cut the white potion into 1" pieces. Cut the green portions into thin strips.
  7. Rinse and dry the chicken. Add salt and pepper to taste. I used about 1/4 tsp of salt.
  8. In a small bowl, add the teriyaki glaze, 1 mined garlic glove, and 1/2 tbsp of chopped ginger. Mix thoroughly and set side.
  9. In a medium pan, add 1/2 tsp of olive oil and sear the salmon for 2-4 minutes on medium-high heat until brown on one side. Transfer chicken onto baking sheet with the golden brown size up and brush on teriyaki glaze mixture. Cook in oven 5-8 minutes or until 145 degrees.
  10. Add the carrots to the pan you used to cook he salmon. Add 1/2 tsp olive oil. Cook 2-3 minutes until starting to tender slightly. Add the bok choy and white onion pieces. Cook for 2 minutes. Add the remaining mined garlic clove and 1/2 tsp of ginger. Add the jalapeño. Cook an additional 3-4 minutes. Add salt and pepper to taste. I used about about 1/4 tsp salt.
  11. Add the vegetable mixture to two plates divided evenly. Add the chicken on top. Drizzle the remaining teriyaki sauce. Add 2-3 green onion strips to garnish.
  1. This is a great dish. It is easy to make and very delicious. You can replace with jalapeño with just about any chile you want to use. Each serving has 2.8 grams of fiber.
