bohoEATS…Healthy Ginger Chicken + Bok Choy

i LOVE Asian food but don't like some of the heavy sauces -so I try to get inspiration from what I love and try to make it healthier but still flavorful   Lately, I have been trying to cook, grocery shop and cleanup more efficiently.  This dish is easy, healthy and We Love it.

1 package of organic chicken breasts, diced- I love using poultry shears to cut chicken into perfect squares.
3 tablespoons of fresh grated ginger-take the back of the spoon and scrape the ginger to remove the peel and use a microplane.
1 lemongrass stalk
3 scallions chopped green & white parts
2 tablespoons of olive oil or avocado oil
1 gallon ziploc bag
1 shredded organic carrot use cheese grater
1 cup Organic Low Sodium Chicken Broth

1 bunch of organic bok choy chopped ( you will need 1 tablespoon of olive oil)
2 cups of Organic quinoa -cook according to directions (you could do this the night before)(i like to use chicken or veggie stock instead of water, it gives it more flavor)

put all ingredients except bok choy, quinoa, and chicken broth in ziploc bag seal and leave over night in refrigerator.  Sauté ingredients from bag in nonstick skillet over medium high heat until chicken is cooked through.  Add 1/2 c of chicken broth in skillet and simmer.  remove lemongrass.

Sauté with 1 tablespoon of olive oil with bok choy over medium heat until tender add other 1/2 c of chicken broth to bok choy and simmer.  Add chicken mixture to boo choy and simmer for a couple of minutes.  

Serve over quinoa
