2-serving instructions (4-serving modifications in red)

Wash produce before use


Cook the rice

  • Rinse the rice.
In a small sauce pot, combine the rice and ¾ cup [1½ cups] water. Bring to a boil, reduce to a simmer, cover, and cook until the rice is tender and the liquid is absorbed, 12 to 15 minutes. Fluff with a fork, cover, and keep warm.
While the rice cooks, prepare the rest of the meal.


Prep the chicken

  • Pat the chicken dry with a paper towel; season generously with salt and pepper.
  • On separate plates or shallow bowls, season the flour and panko with salt and pepper and spread in an even layer.
  • Crack the egg into a shallow bowl and season with salt and pepper. With a fork or whisk, lightly beat until just blended.
Working with 1 chicken breast at a time, dredge the chicken in the flour, turning to coat; shake off any excess. Dip the chicken into the egg; let the excess drip off, then gently press the chicken into the panko, coating all sides.


Cook the chicken

In a large frying pan over medium heat, warm 3 to 4 tablespoons oil until hot but not smoking. Add the chicken and cook, turning once, until golden brown, 2 to 3 minutes per side. Reduce the heat to low and continue cooking, turning once, until the chicken is firm and cooked through, 5 to 8 minutes per side. Transfer to a cutting board to cool slightly. Cut the chicken crosswise into ½-inch-thick slices. Wipe out the pan.
While the chicken cooks and cools, prepare the remaining ingredients.


Prep the remaining ingredients; cook the mustard greens

  • Remove any coarse stems from the mustard greens; coarsely chop the greens.
  • Coarsely chop the cilantro for garnish.
In the same pan used for the chicken, warm 1 to 2 teaspoons oil over medium heat until hot but not smoking. Working in batches if needed, stir in the greens and stir-fry blend and cook until the greens are just wilted, 1 to 2 minutes. Remove from the heat and season to taste with salt and pepper.


Transfer the rice to individual bowls and top with the chicken and mustard greens. Drizzle each chicken breast with 1½ teaspoons spicy chile mayo and garnish with the cilantro. Serve the remaining mayo on the side.
