    From the Test Kitchen

    This flavorful stir-fry combines chicken and tender bok choy in a delectably spicy, sweet sauce of soy glaze, lime juice, sambal oelek and more. It's served over a bed of fluffy white rice and topped with cashews for a bit of crunch.

    Prepare the ingredients & make the sauce
    1 Prepare the ingredients & make the sauce

    Wash and dry the fresh produce. Peel the carrots and thinly slice on an angle. Cut off and discard the root ends of the bok choy; thinly slice crosswise. Thinly slice the scallions, separating the white bottoms and hollow green tops. Quarter the lime. In a bowl, combine the hoisin sauce, soy glaze, the juice of 2 lime wedges, and as much of the sambal oelek as you'd like, depending on how spicy you'd like the dish to be. Taste, then season with salt and pepper if desired.

    2 Cook the rice

    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 2 cups 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.

    3 Cook the chicken

    Meanwhile, 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, 2 to 3 minutes, or until lightly browned. Continue to cook, stirring occasionally, 2 to 3 minutes, or until browned and cooked through. Leaving any browned bits (or fond) in the pan, transfer to a plate.

    4 Cook the vegetables

    In the pan of reserved fond, heat a drizzle of olive oil on medium-high until hot. Add the sliced carrots in an even layer. Cook, without stirring, 2 to 3 minutes, or until lightly browned. Add the sliced bok choy and sliced white bottoms of the scallions; season with salt and pepper. Cook, stirring frequently, 2 to 3 minutes, or until softened.

    5 Finish & serve your dish

    To the pan of cooked vegetables, add the cooked chicken and sauce (carefully, as the liquid may splatter). Cook, stirring constantly, 30 seconds to 1 minute, or until coated and combined. Turn off the heat. Serve the cooked rice topped with the finished chicken and vegetables. Garnish with the sliced green tops of the scallions and cashews. Serve the remaining lime wedges on the side. Enjoy!
