Spicy Baby Bok Choy Sauté

This side dish is pretty quick to put together, and it has a lot of flavor. The package of baby bok choy I picked up was only around 6 ounces, and it cooked down a lot, so I was left with too much of the sauce for the amount of greens that I had, and it was pretty salty. I adjusted the recipe below, because I think it would have been a lot better with more bok choy to bulk it up. It was great over rice next to some of our leftover Spatchcocked Roast Chicken.
