4 boneless, skinless chicken breasts, cut into pieces
1 tsp coconut oil
1 tbsp sesame oil
1 red bell pepper, diced
1 cup asparagus tips
1 cup broccolini tips
1 yellow squash, diced

3. Add red pepper flakes, garlic and ginger to pan and toss. Cook 1 minute.
4. Turn off burner and remove pan from heat. Add chicken pieces and hoisin sauce. Toss to coat and serve or set aside to cool before portioning out for your meal prep containers.

Meal Prep Tip:
Stir fry is one of those amazingly easy-to-make dishes that always pleases a crowd. This recipe makes quite a bit, so it can be portioned out into smaller-sized meals. If you want to make it go even further, add a small scoop of brown rice or quinoa to your smaller-sized meals for more nutrition.
