    tips & techniques
    Cook the rice
    1 Cook the rice

    Remove the honey from the refrigerator to bring to room temperature. Carefully rinse the rice (sifting through for any small stones or impurities). Drain thoroughly. In a medium pot, combine the rice, a big pinch of salt, and 1 cup of water. Heat to boiling on high. Once boiling, reduce the heat to low. Cover and cook, without stirring, 13 to 15 minutes, or until the water has been absorbed and the rice is tender. Turn off the heat and fluff with a fork.

    Meanwhile, wash and dry the fresh produce. Cut the mushrooms into bite-sized pieces. Cut off and discard the root ends of the bok choy; roughly chop, separating the stems and leaves. In a bowl, whisk together the honey (kneading the packet before opening), black bean sauce, 1/4 cup of water, and as much of the gochujang as you’d like, depending on how spicy you’d like the dish to be.

    3 Cook the chicken

    Pat the chicken dry with paper towels; season with salt and pepper. In a large pan (nonstick, if you have one), heat a drizzle of olive oil on medium-high until hot. Add the seasoned chicken in an even layer. Cook, without stirring, 3 to 4 minutes, or until lightly browned. Continue to cook, stirring occasionally, 3 to 4 minutes, or until browned and cooked through. Leaving any browned bits (or fond) in the pan, transfer to a plate.

    In the pan of reserved fond, heat the sautéed aromatics on medium-high until hot (be careful, as the liquid may splatter). Add the mushroom pieces in an even layer. Cook, without stirring, 3 to 4 minutes, or until browned. Add the chopped bok choy stems; season with salt and pepper. Cook, stirring frequently, 2 to 3 minutes, or until softened. Add the sauce (carefully, as the liquid may splatter); season with salt and pepper. Cook, stirring frequently, 1 to 2 minutes, or until the sauce is slightly thickened.

    Add the cooked chicken and chopped bok choy leaves to the pan. Cook, stirring frequently, 30 seconds to 1 minute, or until combined and the bok choy leaves are wilted. Turn off the heat. Taste, then season with salt and pepper if desired. Serve the finished stir-fry over the cooked rice. Garnish with the sesame seeds. Enjoy!
