Sesame Chicken Stir Fry

13 w

Today I am sharing the recipe for one of my favorite entrees. While we were still living in south Florida, we purchased fruits and vegetables through an organic food co-op run by students at a local community college. The day before the box was delivered, we received an email informing us of what the delivery would include. Rather than shopping for specific produce based on a pre-planned menu, I found myself looking for recipes based on the produce I received. On one of my recipe hunts, I discovered a Weight Watchers recipe for a stir fry incorporating bok choy as a main ingredient.

I’ve adapted the original recipe slightly by using chicken tenderloins and adding mushrooms. It has become one of our favorite entrees.
1. First gather the ingredients.

8. Add chopped bok choy and stir-fry until tender crisp (about 4 minutes.)
