Spicy Teriyaki Chicken Breasts 

Total time: 25 minutes
    Using a hot mustard with the Teriyaki sauce gives these chicken breasts an intense flavor. Poke the breasts with a fork to let the marinade seep deeper into the chicken.

    It's a simple thing: first sauté the shallot and garlic, then sauté the rice; but it mellows the garlic and shallot and imbues the rice with their scents, more than just cooking together would ever do.
