Cook the rice
Preheat the oven to 450°F. In a medium pot, combine the rice, 3 cups water and a big pinch of salt; bring to a boil. Reduce the heat, cover and simmer, 14 to 16 min., until the rice is tender and the water has been absorbed. Remove from the heat and let sit, covered, for 5 min. Fluff and set aside in a warm spot.

Roast the vegetables
Halve the carrots lengthwise. On a lined sheet pan, toss with a drizzle of oil and S&P. Arrange in a single layer and roast, flipping halfway, 18 to 22 min., until golden brown. Mince the garlic. Remove the pan from the oven. Add the edamame and ½ the garlic; drizzle with oil and season with S&P. Toss well. Arrange in a single layer and continue to roast, 4 to 6 min., until the carrots are tender.

Cook the chicken
In a large pan, heat a drizzle of oil on medium-high. Pat the chicken* dry with paper towel; season with ½ the spices and S&P. Cook, partially covered, 4 to 6 min. per side, until cooked through. Transfer to a plate, leaving any browned bits in the pan. Reserve the pan.

Make the sauce
In the same pan, heat a drizzle of oil on medium. Sauté the remaining garlic, 30 sec. to 1 min., until fragrant. Add ⅓ cup water and cook, scraping up any browned bits from the bottom of the pan, 1 to 2 min., until slightly reduced. Add the coconut milk and cashew butter; season with the remaining spices. Cook, whisking occasionally, 2 to 3 min., until combined. Stir in ½ the lime juice and ½ the lime zest; season with S&P.
