Roast & slice the pork
1 Roast & slice the pork

Preheat the oven to 450°F. Line two sheet pans with foil. Pat the pork dry with paper towels. Season with salt and pepper on all sides. Transfer to one sheet pan. Roast 25 to 27 minutes, or until browned and cooked through.* Transfer to a cutting board and let rest at least 5 minutes. Find the lines of muscle (or grain) on the rested pork; slice crosswise against the grain into 8 equal-sized pieces.

Meanwhile, in a medium pot, combine the rice, a big pinch of salt, and 2 cups of water. Heat to boiling on high. Once boiling, reduce the heat to low. Cover and cook, without stirring, 13 to 15 minutes, or until the water has been absorbed and the rice is tender. Turn off the heat and fluff with a fork. Transfer to a large bowl. Taste, then season with salt and pepper if desired. Refill the pot 3/4 of the way up with water; cover and heat to boiling on high.

Meanwhile, pat the chicken dry with paper towels; season with salt and pepper on both sides. Evenly coat 2 seasoned chicken breasts with enough of the Mexican spice blend to coat. Evenly coat the remaining seasoned chicken breasts with enough of the togarashi to coat. In a large pan (nonstick, if you have one), heat 2 teaspoons of olive oil on medium-high until hot. Add the seasoned chicken. Cook 6 to 7 minutes per side, or until browned and cooked through.* Leaving any browned bits (or fond) in the pan, transfer to a cutting board. When cool enough to handle, slice crosswise.
