Roasted Chicken with Bok Choy

Hi everyone. It’s Wednesday, and you know how do I call Wednesdays? Little Fridays. It’s the middle of the week, and we are halfway to Friday. Exciting, isn’t it?

Certainly, we need to celebrate such a delightful day with something seriously delicious. Well, I know, many of you might not see the recipe until tomorrow, but I hope this Roasted Chicken with Bok Choy makes you hungry in the morning.

Indeed, I made this Roasted Chicken with Bok Choy twice. First time I made it for our Valentine’s dinner as a delicious but not too heavy meal. However, I used a lot of coconut milk (If I am not mistaken, that was the full-fat one), so the dish turned out a bit too heavy for our stomachs). But I liked the idea of sharing this delish skillet with you, so I slightly adjusted the initial idea, and here we go. Please don’t thank you me; I know I am awesome :)

As I said, I substitute coconut milk for some plain yogurt. Any kind (Greek, Balkan, or other cheaper version will work). You can take some sour cream instead; however, this won’t be as healthy as with yogurt. I also reduced the amount of dairy and added some water to make the sauce not so thick and rich.

Combined with sautéed onions and garlic, smoked paprika, mustard, and herbs, this Roasted Chicken with Bok Choy is a simple yet hearty and aromatic dish.

You also can also take skinless chicken thighs or skinless chicken breasts to make this even healthier. Either way, you will get a good deal.

    Ben, I always see Bok Choy at the grocery, but have never found a recipe worthy of buying the stuff! So thanks, I’m getting some next time I go. I’m always on the lookout for a new chicken recipe, and this looks and sounds just yummy! Thanks for the substitution ideas, too!

    What a fun dish, Ben! And you know what? I don’t think I’ve ever cooked bok choy before. I’ve eaten it. I’ve seen it in the stores. But I’ve never actually brought it home and cooked with it. That clearly needs to change as this skillet sounds delicious! I love pulling out my cast iron cookware, and I’m thinking it needs to come out for this roasted chicken. We haven’t made roasted chicken in a while, either. And that sauce…it sounds like it needs to be on my dinner plate! Well done, my friend!
