  2. Transfer to an airtight container (a small mason jar works perfectly) and store in the refrigerator up to a week.

  1. Bring a big pot of salted water to a boil. Add spaghetti noodles and cook according to package directions. Rinse cooked noodles with cold water and drain well. Toss cooked and cooled noodles with sesame oil. Set aside.
  2. Add vegetable oil to a 10" skillet. Add chicken chunks and season with salt, pepper, and garlic powder. Cook and stir until golden brown and cooked through. Remove from heat and set aside to cool.
  3. Toss broccoli slaw with veggies and cilantro.
