Mustard-Glazed Chicken with Arugula and Bok Choy

Serving Size: 4
Total Time:


  • 4 tsp dry mustard powder
  • rice vinegar
  • 1 Tbsp medium head of bok choy, about 1 1/4 pound halved lengthwise
  • 2 salt and freshly ground black pepper
  • 4 skinless, boneless chicken breast halves, about 6 ounce each
  • 0.25 cup canola oil
  • 0.75 tsp sugar
  • 1.5 tsp low-sodium soy sauce
  • 0.5 tsp mirin
  • 4 tsp water
  • 5-ounce bag baby arugula


1. Preheat the oven to 425°. In a bowl, stir the mustard with the water, mirin, 1 teaspoon of the soy and 1/2 teaspoon of the sugar.

2. In an ovenproof skillet, heat 1 tablespoon of the oil. Season the chicken with salt and pepper and cook over high heat until golden, 2 minutes. Flip the chicken and brush with the mustard; transfer to the oven and roast for 8 minutes, or until cooked through. Transfer the chicken to a cutting board and let rest for 5 minutes; slice. Wipe out the skillet.

3. Meanwhile, steam the bok choy for 5 minutes. Drain; pat dry. In the same skillet, heat 1 tablespoon of the oil. Add the bok choy cut side down and cook over high heat, turning once, until browned, 3 minutes. Transfer to a platter; season with salt and pepper. Arrange the chicken over the bok choy.

4. In a bowl, whisk the vinegar with the remaining oil, soy sauce and sugar; season with salt and pepper. Add the arugula and toss; arrange over the chicken and serve.
