Before starting, preheat the oven to 450°F. Wash and dry all produce. Add 1 1/4 cups water, 1/8 tsp salt (dbl both for 4 ppl) and broth concentrate to a medium pot. Cover and bring to a boil over high heat. Once boiling, add rice, then reduce heat to low. Cover and cook until rice is tender and liquid is absorbed, 12-14 min. Remove the pot from heat. Set aside, still covered. Fluff rice with a fork.
Meanwhile, peel, then cut sweet potatoes into 1/2-inch pieces. Add sweet potatoes and 1 tbsp oil (dbl for 4 ppl) to a parchment-lined baking sheet. Season with salt and pepper, then toss to coat. Roast in the middle of the oven, flipping halfway through, until golden-brown and tender, 22-24 min.
Meanwhile, trim snap peas, then cut into 1-inch pieces. Thinly slice green onions. Peel, then finely grate 1 tbsp ginger (dbl for 4 ppl). Heat a large non-stick pan over medium-high heat. While the pan heats, pat chicken dry with paper towels. Season with salt and pepper. When the pan is hot, add 1/2 tbsp oil (dbl for 4 ppl), then chicken. Pan-fry until golden-brown, 1-2 min per side. Transfer chicken to an unlined baking sheet. Roast in the middle of the oven until cooked through, 8-10 min.**
Heat the same pan over medium-high heat. When hot, add 1 tbsp oil (dbl for 4 ppl), then snap peas and edamame. Cook, stirring occasionally, until tender-crisp, 3-4 min. Add garlic puree, ginger and half the green onions. Cook, stirring often, until fragrant and warmed through, 2-3 min. Transfer veggies to a plate and set aside.
Heat the same pan over medium. When hot, add 1/2 tbsp oil (dbl for 4 ppl) and half the sesame oil (use all for 4 ppl), then rice. Cook, stirring occasionally, until rice is golden and any remaining liquid is absorbed, 3-4 min. Remove the pan from heat. Add veggies, sweet potatoes, soy sauce and half the vinegar (use all for 4 ppl). Stir to combine.
Divide veggie rice between plates. Add chicken over rice. Sprinkle crispy shallots and remaining green onions over top.
