  1. Heat peanut oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat; fry almonds in hot oil until golden, about 2 minutes. Remove almonds from skillet with a slotted spoon. Stir fry chicken in remaining peanut oil until lightly browned, 2 to 3 minutes. Stir in soy sauce, ginger, salt, and black pepper until fragrant, about 1 minutes. Add mushrooms, onion, celery, and bok choy; continue to cook and stir until vegetables begin to soften, about 2 minutes. Pour chicken broth into skillet, cover, and simmer until chicken is no longer pink in the center, about 3 more minutes.
  2. Mix water and cornstarch in a small bowl; stir into chicken mixture and cook until sauce is thickened, about 3 minutes. Sprinkle with almonds to serve.

This recipe was awesome! I kinda strayed from the recipe a bit, but the end result was amazing! I didn't have peanut oil, so I substituted with sesame oil which gave it intense aroma and flavor....

Good flavor. I added carrots for color and used significantly more vegetables than called for as they cook down so much. To make it SCD I omitted the water and flour combination at the end. Serv...

Pretty much followed the recipe - I didn't read the reviews before I started. My husband and I felt that it did lack flavor. I will try it again but will use some of the suggestions from othe...

Fabulous recipe! I would rate it 10 stars if I could. Taste exactly as the one from the restaurant ;)

I used fresh ginger. It went together quickly and everyone had more than one helping.
