PREPARATION

In a small bowl, combine the broth or water, wine, soy sauce, sugar, sesame oil, salt, and cornstarch, stirring until the cornstarch dissolves. Place a wok or large skillet over medium-high heat. Add 1 tablespoon of the olive oil and heat for 30 seconds. Add the scallions and ginger and stir-fry until fragrant, about 30 seconds. Add the cornstarch mixture and bring to a boil. Cook, stirring constantly, until the sauce has thickened slightly, about 1 1/2 minutes. Transfer to a bowl. Wipe out the pan and return to medium-high heat. Add 2 tablespoons of the remaining olive oil and heat for 30 seconds. Add the chicken and stir-fry until cooked through, 3 to 4 minutes. Transfer to a plate. Wipe out the pan. Reduce heat to medium-high, add the remaining olive oil, and heat for 30 seconds. Carefully add the carrots and 1/3 cup of water. Cover partially and cook, stirring occasionally, until almost tender, about 2 minutes. Add the bok choy stems, cover, and cook for 2 minutes. Add the bok choy leaves and peas and toss gently. Add the sauce and increase heat to high. When it starts to bubble, add the chicken. Stir-fry until warmed through, about 1 minute. Serve immediately over the rice.
