  1. Cut chicken crosswise into 1/4-inch (0.5 cm) thick strips. In a bowl, combine chicken, ginger and brown sugar.
  2. In a large skillet, toast almonds over medium-high heat, stirring, for 2 min or until golden and fragrant; transfer to a bowl. Add butter to pan; swirl to coat. Add chicken mixture and onion; saute for 5 min or until chicken turns white all over and onion is softened.
  3. Whisk cornstarch into Cream and stir into pan with soy sauce. Bring to a simmer, stirring. Stir in bok choy; simmer, stirring, for 3 min or until bok choy is tender crisp and chicken is no longer pink inside. Remove from heat; stir in hot pepper sauce to taste. Sprinkle with almonds and basil; serve lime wedges to squeeze over top.

Footnotes

  • You can substitute pork tenderloin or boneless loin chops for the chicken. If using tenderloin, cut in half lengthwise. Cut tenderloin halves or chops crosswise into 1/4-inch (0.5 cm) thick strips. In step 3, cook until just a hint of pink remains in pork.
