Makes 4 servings

2 1/2 tablespoons olive oil
1 pound boneless, skinless chicken breasts, thinly sliced
2 medium carrots, sliced (about 1 cup)
1/3 cup water
12 ounces bok choy or baby bok choy, sliced into 1 1/2-inch strips, stems separated from leaves
1/3 pound (1 1/2 cups) snow or sugar snap peas
Cooked rice


Prep: 25 Minutes

Heat a wok or large skillet over high heat.

Add 2 tablespoons of the 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 oil, and heat for 30 seconds.

Add the carrots and 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 Cantonese Light 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.
