Cut semi-frozen chicken into bite size pieces, set aside. Add oil to pan and stir fry chicken over medium high heat till browned on all sides (about 3 minutes). Add carrots, peppers and any optional vegetables and sprinkle with soya sauce. Stir fry vegetables until softened. (approx 3-5 minutes) Mix cornstarch with hot water and add to hot chicken stock. Pour in wok. Cover and steam stir fried vegetables and chicken for about 2-3 minutes. Lift cover and cook, stirring till sauce thickens, about 2 minutes more. Top with any desired toppings (nuts or coconut). Serve over hot cooked rice.
