Asian style roasted chicken with sauteed pak choy


I'm secretly in love with Asian cuisine but the problem in Turkey is that it's not that easy to enjoy it. The only place where you can find some Chinese or Japanese restaurant is the central Istanbul - Taksim. So I leave asian restaurants for special occasions and if I get any asian ingredient, I try to play with it. This time this ingredient is pak choy. I've never tried it before and have no idea how to prepare it properly but went with the easiest way - sauteed with some garlic and oyster sauce. Absolutely delicious!

What we need:

1 chicken

for marinate:

200ml apple juice
1 teaspoon of grated ginger
1 teaspoon of paprika
salt and pepper
3 tbsp of soy sauce
3 cloves of garlic
a pinch of ground corriander seeds


2 pak choy
1 red hot pepper
2 cloves of garlic
2 tbsp of oyster sauce
1 teaspoon of sesame seeds
salt and pepper
oil

What we have to do:

1. Mix all marinate ingredients and pour them over the chicken and marinate it for at least an hour. Then put on a baking tray and roast it for 45-50 min in 180C oven ( depending on the size of your chicken).
2. Chop the pak choy. Preheat a pan or a wok, add some oil and grated garlic. When it turns light brown, add sliced pepper and pak choy. Sautee until the leaves turn dark green and the stems get soft. Season with salt and pepper. Then pour 1-2 tbsp of oyster sauce and stir. Finally sprinkle some sesame seeds and remove from the heat.
3. Serve chicken with sauteed pak choy. Enjoy!
