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.

Enjoy!

  • Author: Cassy
  • Prep Time: 10 minutes
  • Cook Time: 30 minutes
  • Total Time: 40 minutes
  • Yield: 4

Ingredients

For the Brussels Sprouts:

  • 1 pound brussels sprouts, ends removed and sliced in half
  • 1/2 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1/4 teaspoon sea salt
  • pinch of pepper

For the Hoisin Sauce:

  • 1, 8 ounce jar coconut aminos
  • 1 tablespoon rice wine vinegar
  • 2 teaspoons sesame oil
  • 1/2 teaspoon fish sauce
  • 1 teaspoon ginger powder
  • 3 tablespoons almond butter (may substitute peanut or sunbutter to preference)

For the Bowls:

  • 1.52 pounds pre-prepared grilled or shredded chicken, warmed
  • Sliced green onions, for garnish
  • Sesame seeds, for garnish

Instructions

  1. Toss brussels sprouts with 1/2 tablespoon olive oil, ¼ teaspoon sea salt, and pepper. Spread out on a rimmed baking sheet and bake 30 minutes.
  2. While brussels sprouts are in the oven, add coconut aminos to a small saucepan over medium heat. Simmer for 10-15 minutes, until it thickens to coat the back of a spoon. Scrape the sauce into a separate bowl and add the rice wine vinegar, sesame oil, fish sauce, ginger powder, and almond butter. Whisk until smooth.
  3. Mix the chicken with the hoisin sauce. To serve, spoon hoisin chicken on top of brussels sprouts and garnish with sliced green onions and sesame seeds.

  2. Warm the chicken either by microwaving 30 seconds to 1 minute with a damp paper towel placed over it, or in a skillet over medium heat with a teaspoon of oil for 3-4 minutes until warmed through. Mix chicken with the hoisin sauce.

    This could totally be a Whole30 recipe too couldn’t it?

    1. Cassy says:

      I’ve never done a Whole30, but these ingredients are all considered “squeaky clean Paleo” per my book and program 🙂

  2. Katy says:

    Just want to make sure I’m reading the recipe correctly- the sauce part calls for 8 oz of coconut aminos, is that right? Looks so tasty! And perfect for this freezing Texas day 🙂

    1. Cassy says:

      That’s correct! It reduces down a LOT.

  3. Jewel Parker says:

    This recipe is really tasty. I used to never eat brussel sprouts but I have recently found ways that I enjoy them. My whole family was skeptical about this recipe, but changed their minds quickly after the first bite.

    Have a family of five. How many servings do your recipes typically feed?
