and Asian bok choy and carrot slaw

Active: 35 min Total: 35 min

We love pairing simple grilled proteins with flavorful crunchy slaws for summer dinners. This three veggie slaw features napa cabbage, carrots and bok choy. If you've never had bok choy raw, its lightness and crunch makes it a lovely slaw component!

Make

  1. If making chicken on the grill: Preheat grill to 500 degrees, keeping one part on higher heat and another part on lower heat. Clean grates and brush with some oil. Add chicken strips to higher heat part. Sear on each side for ~2 minutes (keeping cover closed). Move to lower heat and cook for another 2 to 3 minutes (or until chicken is cooked through) with cover closed.
  2. If making chicken on the stovetop: Heat a grill pan over medium-high heat. Brush with some oil, and add chicken to hot grill pan and sear for ~3 minutes on both sides. Lower heat and then cover with foil, cooking for another 2 to 3 minutes.
  3. Toss chicken with slaw and pistachios. Finish with lime juice and season to taste with salt, pepper or any of your preferred condiments - we love a few shakes of hot sauce!

We don't have a grill or grill pan so I cubed and sauteed the chicken and then tossed it into the salad rather than serving on top.

I skipped the bok choy since I don't like it raw, and used leftover coleslaw mix instead. I love the tofu. The salad I liked better in leftovers, probably because the dressing absorbed a bit more.

Yummy! Easy and healthy. 4-yr-old thought the chicken was a tad bit spicy, but she still ate it. Nice bok choy! Great for leftovers -- could make a bigger batch.
