Josh and I have not been good at adhering to our no dining out or ordering in during the week policy. In fact, our bank accounts and digestive systems are furious with us. With so many options in New Orleans for almost every type of craving, we're having a hard time figuring out when it's ok to take a shortcut. Do we pick up Vietnamese food when we've both had too long a day to cook or do we get our butts back in the kitchen and save $25? The glory that is the Hong Kong Supermarket produce section proves to be our best option. We've been living off of one pound bags of bok choy (for $4!) and pre-cooked chicken sausages. Neither of the two spoils quickly so they've been great to toss together for easy and healthy dinners. Josh first created this dish himself when I just couldn't peel myself off the couch. Don't worry. I pulled my weight and did the cleaning!
Quick & Easy Grilled Chicken Sausage with Bok Choy
1 pack pre-cooked chicken sausage of your choice (really love this brand)
1 c. bok choy, cut into quarters
1 tbsp. soy sauce
1 tsp. minced garlic
Red chili flakes
1. Heat a grill pan (or any pan) with olive oil over medium heat.
2. Lightly toss bok choy quarters in soy sauce, minced garlic, and red chili flakes. Grill bok choy for about three minutes, or until desired tenderness. I like a little crunch!
3. Cut sausage in half and grill until warmed through and nice grill lines appear. Serve with grilled bok choy and season with red chili flakes for an extra kick.
