Cook the rice
In a medium pot, combine the rice, 1 ¼ cups water (double for 4 portions) and a big pinch of salt; bring to a boil. Reduce the heat, cover and let simmer, 17 to 20 minutes, until the rice is tender and the water has been absorbed. Remove from the heat; add ½ the sesame oil and up to ½ the garlic (to taste). Stir to combine. Let sit, covered, for 5 minutes. Fluff the cooked rice with a fork and set aside in a warm spot.

Toast the peanuts
While the rice cooks, heat a drizzle of oil in a large pan on medium. Add the peanuts and cook, stirring frequently, 1 to 2 minutes, until fragrant. Transfer to a plate. Wipe out and reserve the pan.

Cook the chicken
In the same pan, heat a drizzle of oil on medium-high. Pat the chicken dry with paper towel; season with ½ the spice blend and S&P. Add the chicken* to the pan and cook, partially covered, 6 to 8 minutes per side. In the final 2 minutes of cooking, add the hoisin and 2 tbsp water (double for 4 portions) and cook, spooning the sauce over the chicken, until cooked through and thoroughly glazed. Transfer the chicken and the sauce to a bowl. Wipe out and reserve the pan.

Mise en place
While the chicken cooks, cut off and discard the root end of the scallion; thinly slice, separating the white bottoms and green tops. Cut off and discard the bottom ½ inch of the yu choy stems; cut the yu choy into 1-inch segments.

Cook the vegetables
In the reserved pan, heat the remaining sesame oil on medium-high. Add the ginger, white bottoms of the scallion and remaining garlic; season with the remaining spice blend. Cook, stirring frequently, 30 seconds to 1 minute, until fragrant. Add the yu choy and carrots. Cook, stirring frequently, 2 to 3 minutes, until the yu choy is tender. Add ½ the toasted peanuts and season with S&P to taste.

Plate your dish
Divide the rice between your plates. Top with the vegetables and the chicken (slice beforehand if desired). Spoon any remaining sauce over the chicken. Garnish with as many of the green tops of the scallion as you’d like and the remaining toasted peanuts. Bon appétit!
