From the Test Kitchen

In this dish, sautéed chicken and crisp vegetables get a bright lift from citrusy ponzu sauce added to our rich sauce alongside sweet hoisin and savory black bean sauce. A bed of white rice provides the perfect contrast to the bold flavors.

1 Cook the rice

In a medium pot, combine the rice, a big pinch of salt, and 2 cups of water. Heat to boiling on high. Once boiling, reduce the heat to low. Cover and cook, without stirring, 12 to 14 minutes, or until the water has been absorbed and the rice is tender. Turn off the heat and fluff with a fork.

2 Prepare the ingredients & make the sauce

Meanwhile, wash and dry the fresh produce. Peel the carrots; halve lengthwise, then thinly slice crosswise. Cut off and discard the root ends of the bok choy; thinly slice crosswise. In a bowl, combine the black bean sauce, ponzu sauce, hoisin sauce, sautéed aromatics, and as much of the red pepper flakes as you'd like, depending on how spicy you'd like the dish to be.

Pat the chicken dry with paper towels. Place in a bowl; add the cornstarch. Season with salt and pepper; toss to thoroughly coat. In a large pan (nonstick, if you have one), heat 2 tablespoons of olive oil on medium-high until hot. Add the seasoned chicken (discarding any excess cornstarch) and sliced carrots in an even layer. Cook, without stirring, 3 to 4 minutes, or until lightly browned.

To the pan, add the sliced bok choy and sauce (carefully, as the liquid may splatter). Season with salt and pepper. Cook, stirring frequently, 4 to 5 minutes, or until the vegetables are softened and the chicken is cooked through. Turn off the heat. Taste, then season with salt and pepper if desired. Serve the finished stir-fry over the cooked rice. Enjoy!
