  • 2 tablespoons bottled Chinese hoisin sauce (essential)
  • 1 tablespoon sugar
  • 2 teaspoons toasted sesame oil
  • 3-4 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1 teaspoon fresh ginger, grated
  • 1/2 teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes (optional)
  • 1/8 teaspoon black pepper
  • 12 ounces boneless, skinless chicken breasts
  • 4 ounces angel hair pasta
  • 3 medium nectarines or peaches, sliced

While the chicken is cooking, prepare the angel hair pasta according to the package directions. Once cooked, drain the pasta and toss it with 3 tablespoons of the prepared dressing.

4. Assemble the salad:

Plate up the dressed pasta on 4 plates and top it with the cooked chicken pieces, sliced nectarines or peaches, shredded baby bok choy, and sliced green onions.

5. Drizzle with dressing:

Drizzle the remaining dressing over the salad to enhance the flavors and bring everything together.
