  4. Chop the chicken into generous chunks. Transfer porridge to bowls. Garnish with chicken, sauteed bok choy, mushrooms, cilantro, sesame seeds, and green onions. If desired, drizzle with soy sauce.
  5. To Make Lemon Sautéed Bok Choy Thoroughly wash bok choy. Cut off the bottom and discard, or re-grow by setting in enough water to cover bottom. Sautée the leaves on medium heat with lemon juice, until leaves have wilted, but have retain a bit of crunch. Salt to taste.
