Directions

  1. Heat peanut oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat; fry almonds in hot oil until golden, about 2 minutes. Remove almonds from skillet with a slotted spoon. Stir fry chicken in remaining peanut oil until lightly browned, 2 to 3 minutes. Stir in soy sauce, ginger, salt, and black pepper until fragrant, about 1 minutes. Add mushrooms, onion, celery, and bok choy; continue to cook and stir until vegetables begin to soften, about 2 minutes. Pour chicken broth into skillet, cover, and simmer until chicken is no longer pink in the center, about 3 more minutes.
  2. Mix water and cornstarch in a small bowl; stir into chicken mixture and cook until sauce is thickened, about 3 minutes. Sprinkle with almonds to serve.

Very tasty, great dish! Only change i made was to add some sliced red peppers and some dried red pepper flakes. Do not skip the whole almonds fried in the oil - these really give it the taste.

This is a good basic Chinese recipe. I used beef instead of chicken since that is what I picked up at the meat store today. I added the red pepper flakes as suggested - if I hadn't it would have been WAY too bland for me. So kudos to whoever suggested that! I also added bean sprouts - they added some good crunch which I like. I used sesame oil instead of peanut - will try again when I have peanut oil. Instead of rice - I used Udon noodles which was amazing with this recipe. Play around with the veg as much as you like - you won't go wrong! oh-- I also added some garlic!
