Spicy hoisin topped marinated Asian chicken is served over wilted cabbage, carrots and sticky rice in a quick weeknight meal that is sure to please your palate, your busy night and your need for a healthy meal!

If you were reading along about a month ago I first posted about my love for Foster Farms Chicken in my One Pot Rosemary Chicken and Fall Vegetables recipe. I am a pretty straight forward person, so when I chose to write a sponsored post for Foster Farms it was because I genuinely have eaten their chicken my entire life.

My partnership with Foster Farms has actually continued since that post and I’m pretty excited to say that this post is also sponsored by Foster Farms. Of course the opinions in this post are completely my own but c’mon, did you see that picture above, I’m guessing you already know I will be waxing poetic about it.

As the weather cools down and it gets darker sooner we have moved the kids’ bedtimes up a bit (woohoo for more adult time!) and since that means I have to get dinner on the table sooner I have started looking for quicker meals and meals I can pull straight from the freezer.

Since the kids both ate at the zoo today and were not hungry, we got to go spicy. Since the chicken comes in a re-sealable bag, we could make enough for just us and keep the rest frozen. I heated up my pan screaming hot (ok maybe just on high) and added the frozen chicken to the pan.

Just under ten minutes later with nothing more than a hint of chili paste and some sesame oil I had this beautiful pan of chicken waiting to be eaten.

The “recipe” here is more of a method than anything else since the pre-marinated chicken already has so much flavor. I cooked it in sesame oil and just before it was done I added a couple of teaspoons of chili paste to the chicken. Piled on top of a bowl of sticky white rice and some wilted cabbage and carrots, this chicken is topped with some hoisin sauce for a perfect bowl meal. Best part is, for the 3/4 pound of chicken (we made half the bag), I used only needed 2 teaspoons of oil, so it is also incredibly healthy!

Tip: I almost never cook rice when I am making dinner anymore unless it is a flavored rice for a dish (even then I have a rotation I use so I normally have backups in the deep freeze). For this dinner I grabbed a packet of steamed short grain sushi rice out of my deep freeze for a quick base. Equally delicious would’ve been the Perfect Brown Rice, Every Time or Light Coconut Rice. If you cook rice for this meal you will have to start the rice before prepping the chicken, since it cooks so quickly if you start them at the same time the chicken will cool significantly by the time the rice is done.

  1. Add the carrots and cabbage to a glass bowl and cover with wet paper towel.
  2. Microwave for 3-4 minutes to wilt the cabbage.

  3. If you prefer not to use the microwave you can add to a steam basket or you can sauté (but this would require a bit of oil to prevent the cabbage from burning).
  4. Warm up or cook the rice.
  5. Using a large skillet, heat the pan on high.
  6. Add the sesame oil and half the bag of the Foster Farms Sauté Ready Asian Chicken.
  7. Cook for 3-4 minutes on each side, then toss with the chili garlic paste.

  8. Warm the hoisin sauce for 10-15 second in the microwave with a wet paper towel on top of the bowl.

  9. Serve with rice on the bottom of the bowl, then the wilted cabbage and chicken. Add the hoisin sauce on top of the chicken and the sesame seeds as a garnish

  1. Wow, now this is an easy dish. I haven’t seen those Foster Farms Sauté Ready chicken bags, but I am totally going to look for them. They would make dinner time a bit easier. Thanks for the recipe, too 🙂

    1. Thanks Emily! You can tone the spice down by not adding the chili paste and he can add it to his bowl. The marinaded chicken itself is not spicy 🙂

  2. My husband loves anything spicy, these chicken bowls look amazing! That’s awesome that the bag is resealable so you can just use what you need for that meal!

  3. This looks extremely good! My husband and I would love this. I’m not sure my girls would because it’s spicy though. My husband and I love spicy foods, so this is definitely a recipe we’d love to make soon.

    1. You could always leave the chili garlic paste out and just add some sriracha on top of each individual plate who likes it spicy. 🙂

  4. I went to a restaurant and had a chicken bowl and you know what? It was a total let down! But your recipe has reaffirmed my faith in chicken bowls. Man it looks delicious! I could totally dig into this!

  5. I just saw these Saute Ready packages in the store the other day and picked a few up. I’m excited about the possibilities. This time of year I need simple meal solutions with quality ingredients.

  6. This sounds like such a great dish and I love your idea about substituting the coconut rice. I can already taste the flavors.

  7. Your photo really grabbed my attention… it looks delicious! We love stir fry here at our house so I bet this would also be a great meal. Our girls actually like some spicy dishes, but my husband… he always wants things extra extra extra spicy.

    1. Thanks Kristi! The chicken had amazing flavor and just the hint of chili garlic paste was all we needed to heat things up. It was so good and so easy!
