Directions

Instructions Checklist
  • Combine chicken broth, water, onion, jalapeno, ginger, and garlic in a large pot; bring to a boil. Add chicken breasts; cook until no longer pink in the center and an instant-read thermometer inserted into the center reads at least 165 degrees F (74 degrees C), 15 to 20 minutes.

  • Remove chicken from the pot. Cool until easily handled, about 5 minutes. Shred chicken and return to the pot. Stir in bok choy and cook until wilted, 3 to 5 minutes. Season soup with salt.

Cook's Note:

Substitute a serrano pepper for the jalapeno if preferred.

You can use baby or regular bok choy in this recipe.

Made it with 1t toasted sesame oil (yum) instead of peppers b/c I don't care for the heat. Way too much bok choy. Would make it again with more sesame oil less bok choy and bit of salt or soy sauce. Read More

I substituted the jalapeño with red chilli paste (about 1 tablespoon), because that’s what i had. I also cut the raw chicken into smaller pieces before adding it to the soup first. Finally I added some rice noodles (I used pad Thai noodles) a couple of minutes before adding the bok choy - it was simply amazing! I was scared it would taste too much like chicken stock, but the chilli and ginger really gave it a nice fragrance and taste. Highly recommend! Read More

This was the perfect solution for too much bok choy in my garden. I am not a big jalapeño fan so I substituted a teaspoon of roasted sesame oil. Perfect!! Read More
