Chicken marinade

  • 8 boneless skinless chicken thighs
  • 1/4 cup low-sodium soy sauce or tamari
  • 2 tbsp honey
  • 1 tbsp sesame oil
  • 4 cloves garlic
  • 1 tbsp fresh ginger
  • 1 tbsp sesame seeds

Asian slaw

  • 1 bag coleslaw mix
  • 2 tbsp low sodium soy sauce
  • 2 tbsp rice vinegar
  • 1 tbsp honey
  • 1 tbsp sesame oil
  • 1 tsp powdered ginger


  • 1 cup jasmine rice
  • 1 1/4 cups water
  • 1 tsp butter
  • 1 pinch salt


  • Preheat grill to high heat, or preheat oven to 425 F. In a large bowl, mix chicken marinade ingredients together. Add chicken thighs and marinate 10-15 minutes.
  • Meanwhile, cook jasmine rice according to package directions. Mix together ingredients for Asian slaw dressing, then set aside.
  • Add chicken to grill or frying pan. Cook on grill for 7 minutes, then flip and cook another 5 minutes depending on how large the thighs are. If using the oven method, bake on a parchment-lined baking sheet for 20 minutes or until chicken reaches 165 F in thickest part of thigh.
  • Add two chicken thighs to each meal prep bowl. Toss coleslaw with dressing then add slaw and rice to each bowl. Serve and enjoy - leftovers stay good in the fridge up to 4-5 days.
