Meal Prep Paleo Hoisin Chicken Bowls
These Paleo Hoisin Chicken Bowls will really hit that Chinese food craving spot and come together quickly with a few meal prep components! The savory, creamy sauce is poured over chicken and then served with roasted Brussels sprouts. Make it your own with rice or another carbohydrate!
These Paleo hoisin chicken bowls are one of my weeknight go-to's! The hoisin sauce is absolutely delicious and really simple to make. To make these bowls, we made shredded chicken and roasted brussels sprouts as part of our meal prep so that on the day of all we would have to do is make the sauce, toss in the chicken, and serve it over some roasted Brussels sprouts. If you'd prefer a higher carb punch, feel free to serve the hoisin chicken over white rice or even a baked potato.

- 1, 8 ounce jar coconut aminos
