  • 2 tsp olive oil
  • 1 cup matchstick carrots
  • 1 red pepper, sliced
  • 1 cup Shredded red cabbage
  • 1 tbsp soy sauce
  • 4 cups cooked jasmine rice

Topping ideas (all of these are optional add-ons to top your bowls with after)

  • 1/2 cup bean sprouts
  • 4 scallions, sliced
  • 2 tbsp peanut pieces
  • 2 tbsp sesame seeds
  • 1/2 cup cilantro, chopped


  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 3 chicken breasts, cubed
  • 1 egg
  • 1/3 cup cornstarch
  • 2 tbsp breadcrumbs (optional; though I show this in the video I think I prefer without breadcrumbs!)
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 3/4 cup sweet chili sauce
  • 1 tbsp Sriracha


  • In a large bowl, mix chicken together with egg, cornstarch and, is using, breadcrumbs. Heat 1 tbsp olive oil in a large skillet over med-high heat. Add chicken and salt and saute for 5 min until browned. Add sweet chili sauce and sriracha and cook another 3-4 min until chicken is fully cooked.
  • Meanwhile, cook jasmine rice according to package directions on the stove or in a rice cooker. Remove chicken from pan and move to a bowl, setting aside. Do not wipe skillet clean, instead adding 2 tsp olive oil and sauteeing carrots, red pepper and red cabbage together with soy sauce.
  • Divide rice among four glass meal prep bowls (I got mine from IKEA!) and top with veggie mixture. Add chicken and your choice of optional add-on toppings. Garnish with lime wedge (optional) and serve! Keeps in fridge up to 5 days.
