You’ll Need:

  • 1 tablespoon canola oil
  • 2 boneless skinless chicken breasts, cubed
  • 1 red pepper diced
  • 1 large carrot peeled and shredded
  • 1 teaspoon minced garlic
  • 1/2 teaspoon minced ginger
  • 1-2 pinches red pepper flakes
  • 4 cups chicken broth
  • 1/2 cup soy sauce
  • 1/4 cup hoisin sauce
  • 1 375 g box whole grain spaghettini pasta
  • 1 cup stringless snap peas
  • 1 1/2 cups shredded cabbage or coleslaw mix


  1. Add oil to a large pot and cook chicken over medium-high heat, just until mostly browned.
  2. Add pepper, peas, cabbage and carrot and cook for 2-3 minutes, until veggies are softened slightly.
  3. Add garlic, ginger, and pepper flakes and cook 1 minute.
  4. Stir in broth, soy sauce and hoisin sauce and bring to a boil over medium-high heat. Add pasta and reduce heat to medium.
  5. Cook the pasta, stirring frequently, for 5 minutes until pasta is separated (we don't want no clumps!) most of the liquid has been absorbed. Cover and cook for 3-4 more minutes until pasta is al dente or cooked to your preference. Serve.


You can easily start with raw chicken! Just chop up your chicken breasts, and brown them completely in the pan (use a non stick pan or spray with a little non stick spray) before adding the rest of your ingredients.
