Cook the rice
In a medium pot, combine the rice, 1 ½ cups water (double for 4 portions) and a big pinch of salt; bring to a boil. Reduce the heat, cover and simmer, 14 to 16 minutes, until the rice is tender and the water has been absorbed. Remove from the heat and let sit, covered, for 5 minutes. Fluff the cooked rice with a fork and set aside in a warm spot.

Start the chicken
In a large pan, heat a drizzle of oil on medium-high. Pat the chicken thighs dry with paper towel; season with ¾ of the spice blend and S&P. Add the chicken* to the pan and cook, partially covered, 4 to 6 minutes per side, until cooked through. Transfer to a plate, leaving any browned bits (or fond) in the pan, and set aside in a warm spot. Reserve the pan.

Mise en place & make the slaw
While the chicken cooks, juice the lime. Roughly chop the cilantro leaves and stems. Peel and small-dice the mango. In a large bowl, add ½ the lime juice and 2 tbsp oil (double for 4 portions); stir to combine. Add the edamame, cabbage, mango and up to ½ the cilantro (to taste); toss to combine. Season with as much remaining spice blend as you’d like and S&P.

Finish the chicken
In the reserved pan of fond, heat a drizzle of oil on medium-high. Add the garlic, honey, demi-glace, remaining lime juice and 3 tbsp water (double for 4 portions). Cook, stirring frequently, 2 to 3 minutes, until thickened and reduced. Add the cooked chicken and toss to coat with the glaze; season with S&P to taste.
