Stir frys are a great and easy one pot meal that I’ve always enjoyed. They used to be filled with soy sauce and sriracha. Now it’s filled with turmeric and coconut aminos like this Chicken and Bok Choy Turmeric Stir Fry.
My husband loves bok choy so I’m always trying to find ways of incorporating it into our meals. He doesn’t always love to eat my AIP dinners and our meals can get a little repetitive because of my additional food restrictions. There’s a much better chance of him enjoying our meal if I make something with bok choy.
For my husband and son, they eat this Chicken and Bok Choy Turmeric Stir Fry with rice because they aren't paleo let alone AIP. I usually eat it alone or with roasted squash. My system handles roasted squash really well so I have a tendency to eat it with everything. Although I think this recipe would be great with cauliflower rice as well. It has a more traditional Asian feel than squash.
