Grilled Bok Choy, Teriyaki Chicken and Fried Rice

Whenever I get bok choy in my CSA share, I immediately think of making Chinese food. I tried grilling the bok choy this time (I usually sauté the leaves), and it was so good. This week was the first pickup of the Stearns Farm CSA, and we received two heads of bok choy, one bunch each…
