Chicken Fried Rice with Bok Choy

Use cold rice because it retains its shape and stays separate, so each grain will be evenly coated with the seasonings. You can also use long-grain brown rice, or a combination of white and brown. If you can't find baby bok choy, substitute 6 cups coarsely chopped regular bok choy.
