What is the best part of a cooking show? Watching the judges freak out? Imagining what the food tastes like? Or is it laughing at the insane challenges issued to the contestants? Why not challenge yourself to make a delicious weeknight meal with just one pot? This Chinese chicken and rice with bok choy and carrots is full of flavor and requires only one pot, making it the perfect weeknight meal for two. Of course, you can double it if you’re cooking for four, or if you just want some leftovers for lunch the next day. So, if you’re a college student or just a frugal chef with only one pot to use, this is the ideal recipe for you.
If you’re concerned about keeping everything warm, you can set your oven to warm and keep your covered serving dish in there while everything else cooks. Just be careful when serving— the dish will be very hot.
