Bok Choy Stir-Fry

I love Mike, obviously - since I'm marrying him. If you know him you know that he RARELY has a bad day, so when I got home from work and he had that look on his face that I rarely see, I immediately felt awful. An hour later, he asks me to make a dish his mother has made for us a few times over the years - one I of course do not have on hand. I gave her a call, and she dug through her cookbooks and sent me the recipe. I ran off to the grocery store, and whipped this one up.

It is so not the recipe she sent along, but it was very good and it put the smile back on Mike's face!

1 medium sized bok choy
2 small zucchinis
1 large red pepper
1 lb. chicken
1/3 cup of stir fry sauce
2 cloves of garlic
1/4 cup of hoisin sauce
3 scallions, for garnish
2 tablespoons olive oil
Crushed red pepper flakes, to taste - optional
Salt and pepper, to taste
Sesame seeds, for garnish

Slice up all the vegetables and set aside. In a large saucepan, heat the olive oil - sprinkle with salt and pepper and cook through. Set the cooked chicken aside. Pour the zucchini, red pepper and bok choy into the pan and cook until almost completely soft - about 5 minutes. Add the remaining ingredients, including the chicken. Cook through and stir to coat all the ingredients with the sauce. Serve over brown rice and top with scallions and sesame seeds.
