  • 1 tablespoon toasted sesame oil
  • 2 tablespoons of honey
  • 1 shallot minced
  • 2 garlic cloves minced
  • 1 1 tablespoon fresh ginger minced
  • Juice of 1 lime
  • 2 tablespoons coconut aminos or sub soy sauce
  • pinch of salt and black pepper

Other Ingredients:

  • Chicken breast or chicken tenderloins or sub tofu for vegan, chopped in cubes or strips
  • 1 teaspoon of toasted sesame seed oil
  • 1 small broccoli head and stalk roughly chopped
  • 2-3 carrots sliced
  • 2-3 celery stalks sliced
  • 3 ½ oz 1 package rice vermicelli noodles
  • Optional: mushrooms green cabbage, brussels sprouts

To Serve:

  • fresh cilantro chopped or pick leaves
  • green onions sliced or chopped
  • black sesame seeds


  • Add the sauce ingredients to a bowl and mix to combine. Add chicken (or tofu) and toss to combine. Add parchment paper on top and place in the fridge for up to 2 hours before cooking. 
  • Add chicken and sauce to a skillet over medium heat, and cook for 3-5 minutes on one side, flip over and cook for an additional 3-5 minutes. Keep an eye on the chicken to see if it needs only 3 minutes on each side or longer, depending on the meat's thickness, to ensure it cooks evenly.  
  • Remove cooked chicken from the skillet and set aside.  Using the same skillet, add 1 teaspoon of toasted sesame seed oil and add the veggies you prefer: broccoli, carrots, celery, cabbage, mushrooms, brussels sprouts. Saute for about 5-7 minutes until all the veggies start to wilt and soften. Add chicken back to the pan and toss to combine.
  • Prepare vermicelli by following the instructions on the back of the label. Once cooked, add noodles to the chicken and veggies. Toss to combine.
  • Divide food into serving bowls or plates, top with cilantro, green onions, and black sesame seeds to serve.
