Cook the rice
Place the rice in a strainer and rinse under cold water, agitating it for 1 min., until the water runs clear. In a medium pot, combine the rice, 1 ¼ cups water (double for 4 portions) and a big pinch of salt; bring to a boil. Reduce the heat, cover and simmer, 18 to 20 min., until the rice is tender and the water has been absorbed. Remove from the heat and let sit, covered, for 5 min. Fluff the rice.

Cook the chicken
Meanwhile, 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, 6 to 8 min. per side, until cooked through. Transfer to a cutting board and let rest for 5 min. before slicing against the grain.

Mise en place
Meanwhile, thinly slice the scallion, separating the white bottom and green top. Halve the cucumber lengthwise; using the side of your knife, gently smash the halves until slightly flattened. Cut into large chunks.
