Ingredients

    1 box linguine/fettucine
    1 cup shredded red cabbage
    2 cups broccoli florets
    3 large chicken breasts-grilled and cubed (27 oz)
    .5 cup chopped onion

    Sauce:
    .5 cup soy sauce (or less if you like)
    4 tbsp Hoisin sauce
    3 tbsp brown sugar
    dash lemon juice
    dash garlic powder
    squeeze chili sauce
    dash sesame seeds

Directions

Grill chicken breasts on the stove using pam, and a few shakes of garlic powder. When cooked, cube and set aside. You can add soy sauce to chicken while it rests, if you like it saltier.

Cook pasta a little less cooked than you would like. Drain and spray with pam to keep it from sticking. Set aside.

In a bowl combine sauce ingredients, adjusting to your taste.

Take nine tupperware containers and set out on the counter. Measure 4 oz of pasta out for each container. Top with 3 oz of chicken for each container. Divide raw broccoli, raw cabbage and raw onion between the containers evenly.

Divide sauce between the containers, adding more or less as you like. Close containers and freeze right away.

Microwave frozen meal until heated through, stirring every minute. About 3 minutes total.

These are great to take to work for lunch, and you can add any vegetables you like. Just adjust the calories in your tracker.
