    Cook the Rice

    Bring a medium pot with rice and 1½ cup water to a boil. Reduce to a simmer, cover, and cook until rice is tender, 18-20 minutes. Remove from burner and set aside covered. While rice cooks, prepare ingredients.

  • Step 3 - Make the Slaw

    Place a medium non-stick pan over medium-high heat and add 1 tsp. olive oil. Add shishito peppers to hot pan and stir occasionally until charred, 2-3 minutes. Transfer shishito peppers to a mixing bowl and add slaw mix, cilantro (reserve a pinch for garnish), 2 tsp. lime juice, 2 tsp. olive oil, ¼ tsp. salt, and a pinch of pepper. Stir to combine and set aside, stirring occasionally. Reserve pan; no need to wipe clean.

  • Step 4 - Cook the Chicken

    Return pan used to cook shishito peppers to medium heat and add 1 tsp. olive oil. Add chicken to hot pan and cook until chicken is browned and reaches a minimum internal temperature of 165 degrees, 3-5 minutes per side. Remove chicken to a plate.
