With the motor running, slowly pour water through the feed tube a little a time, until the mixture reaches the desired consistency. You want it thin enough to pour, but not watery.
  • Transfer to an airtight container (a small mason jar works perfectly) and store in the refrigerator up to a week.

  • 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.
  • 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.
  • Toss broccoli slaw with veggies and cilantro.
  • Divide chicken, noodles, and some of the slaw mixture between four meal prep containers. Sprinkle chicken and noodles with sesame seeds and/or chopped peanuts, if desired. Add a small container of the Easy Peanut Sauce to each container.
  • Keeps well in airtight containers for up to 4 days.
