I cook and eat vegetables very often; veggie is a must-have item for a balanced Chinese meal.

However, I seldom post vegetable dishes on Rasa Malaysia, and occasionally readers asked if I could share some vegetable recipes. The truth is—despite the fact that vegetables is a staple in my family—there aren’t that many variations, especially when it comes to Chinese cooking. If you go to a Chinese restaurant, the server would usually recommend two or three types of stir-fry: plain, garlic, or with oyster sauce, and you choose the type of vegetables you like.

So, what I meant to say is, I have shared a few vegetable recipes a few years ago, and that pretty much cover the basics of cooking vegetables. You can refer to the recipes here, here, and here, and change the type of vegetables and ingredients used.

This bok choy chicken is basically chicken stir-fried with bok choy. I had a bunch of bok choy in my fridge last week so I decided to shoot some pictures and share this bok choy chicken recipe with you. I also wanted to reiterate these two cooking techniques when it comes to vegetables: 1) do not kill your vegetables, they are already dead. The vegetables should be just cooked with a crisp texture; 2) the color of the cooked vegetables should be green, and not purple, unless you’re making an eggplant dish.

I love the combination of chicken and vegetable, but feel free to use shrimp, fish cake, sliced fish balls, or even fried tofu pieces. If you follow this recipe, you will have a serving of refreshing, crispy, and delicious vegetable stir-fry. What kind of leafy green vegetables do you like?

    Great recipe. It’s kind of how i prepare it at home too, I don’t use starch excessively in cooking. The starch from the chicken marinade, as well as vegetables and the oyster sauce already got the abilities to thicken small amounts of sauces like this:).

  2. I know, right? I like to cook vegetables as simply as I can too because I want to maintain their crispness while also not taking away their nutritional value by cooking them to death. Which reminds me, this sentence made me guffaw “Do not kill your vegetables, they are already dead.” I totally get you!

    I like to cook bayam merah (red spinach), kai lan, bok choy and kangkung. pretty much on my weekly rotation and I almost always stirfry them with some minced garlic and salt. Fresh and simple.

  3. Love Chinese vegetable dishes! Even if there are technically only a few…they are a good few, that do justice to the vegetables!

    Some of my favorite greens are bok choy, what we call kang kong (which I think is morning glory), mustard greens (mustasa over here), and maluggay leaves (moringa) :)

    This needs to be on the first page! I found this recipe by searching for “bok choy”, would have missed it otherwise. So far, the best meal I have EVER made in my kitchen. The sauce is really delicious — highly, highly recommended. I will be making this for my mom when she comes to visit. GREAT RECIPE.

    Thank you for this recipe! I made this for dinner the other night, and it was a hit! I was a bit unsure whether my very picky eater husband and youngest daughter would eat it, but they did, and my husband had seconds, too!

    This will definitely be a regular now! Can’t wait to try the other recipes! Thanks again!
