Marinade Chicken

  • Cut your chicken breasts into rectangular strips.
  • In a bowl, combine your chicken breasts with all of the ingredients listed under "marinade" above. Mix them together and marinate for 1-2 hours in the refrigerator.

Cook Everything

  • Heat oil in a large skillet. Add your chicken slices and cook until your chicken is brown (around 10 minutes).
  • Add your bok choy, pepper, oyster sauce, chicken broth, and salt. Mix everything together and cook for another 3 minutes.
  • Add your water chestnuts and snow peas. Mix and cook for another 4 minutes. If the gravy is not thick enough, add around 2 teaspoons of cornstarch.
  • Turn off heat, let sit for a few minutes, serve and enjoy! We prefer serving this with a side of rice.

    Hi Magda, I love the simplicity of this recipe and it does remind me of home a lot. I am so happy to have come across your recipe as I am planning to make some poisson cru for my family this weekend and another dish to go along with it to accommodate the children who don’t eat fish. It made it so easy for me to decide on your dish as soon as I saw it. Thank you so much.
