Citrus-Marinated Chicken Scalloppini with Baby Bok Choy

Deliciously marinated chicken is sliced thin to make cooking this scalloppini a breeze.


  • 4 skinless, boneless chicken breasts, (about 850 g)

  • 2 tsp orange zest

  • 1/2 cup orange juice

  • 2 tbsp soy sauce

  • 4 tsp canola oil, divided

  • 8 baby bok choy, washed and cut in half

  • 1/4 tsp salt

  • 2 garlic cloves, minced

  • 1/3 cup sodium-reduced chicken broth

  • 2 green onions, thinly sliced diagonally


  • Lay chicken breasts on a cutting board. Remove chicken tenders and save for another use. Cut each breast in half horizontally to get 2 thin slices. Cover the slices with parchment. Pound with a rolling pin until 1/4 in. thick. Repeat with remaining chicken. You will have 8 scallopini.

  • Whisk orange zest with juice and soy sauce in a large bowl. Add chicken and turn to coat. Let stand for 10 min.

  • Heat an extra-large, non-stick frying pan over medium-high. Add 2 tsp oil, then bok choy and salt. Stir-fry until tender-crisp, about 3 min. Transfer to a platter. Cover with foil to keep warm.

  • Add remaining 2 tsp oil to same pan over medium. Add chicken in 2 or 3 batches. Don’t crowd pan, adding more oil if needed. Cook until golden, 2 to 3 min per side. Remove to bok choy platter.

  • Add garlic to pan. Cook 30 sec, then pour in broth and remaining marinade. Boil, stirring often, for 2 min. Return chicken to pan. Turn to coat with sauce. Transfer scallopini to platter. Drizzle with sauce and sprinkle with green onions.
