More ideas: Make a side for steamed fish by stir-frying pak choy with broccoli, water chestnuts and soy sauce. For a quick meal, heat chicken stock in a large saucepan. Add shredded cooked chicken, and a dash of soy sauce and dry sherry. Stir through pak choy, thinly sliced lengthways. Serve with rice or noodles.
