My love of sweet chili sauce runs deep (along with pickle anything).

Here on the blog you can find freezer friendly sweet chili chicken burgersbaked sweet chili chicken drumsticks (freezer meal!), and even a a sweet chili chicken noodle soup!

But this meal prep bowl might just by my #1 pick! 

Sweet Chili Chicken Vermicelli Meal Prep Bowls with sauce

The best part of this meal prep is 100% the stove top made sauce.

I am pretty sure a meatball recipe using this sauce is going to hit the blog one day.

If you have never meal prepped with vermicelli noodles before, I know you have questions. 

What are vermicelli noodles? How are they cooked?

They  are very thin rice noodles that you simply put into hot water and let soak a few minutes. It is really that simple.

Can I scale this recipe down?

This recipe makes 4 hearty meal prep bowls.

I promise it is so good, you will want to eat it for the whole week, but in case you don’t just cut the recipe in half. Except the sauce. Leave the sauce recipe as is.

Do I eat sweet chili chicken meal prep bowls hot or cold?

Cold! But, you can remove the chicken, heat it in the microwave and add back into the salad if you prefer. I do both ways – depending on my mood. 

What is the best way to store this meal prep?

You can put everything except the sauce together for storage. You want to make sure that your chicken is cooled so it doesn’t make your crunch veggies go soggy. 

Store your sauce separately, and drizzle on it right as you are about to devour your bowl. 

Only store these for 4 days max in your fridge. 

Lastly, you want your veggies as dry as possible to prevent things going soggy! 

Is it okay to put this amazing sweet chili sauce on every single thing I eat? 

Yes, in fact it is encouraged. We don’t judge your sauce drizzling habits around here.

  1. This looks amazing! Going to try it for work lunches this week!
    Wondering if you have considered posting the nutritional information along with your recipes?

  2. Hi Steph, where is the best place in Airdrie to find Vermicelli Noodles? I never seem to find the right ones (almost too skinny)
    Thanks

    This might be the most delicious thing I ever cooked. We don’t care for cucumber so I steamed some green beans, and thinly sliced some celery and red pepper. The chili sauce is seriously addictive!

  4. 5 stars
    This is so good! The sauce is amazing. I made it with rice noodles, sui choy, red cabbage, carrots, cucumbers and chicken/ tofu options. My husband repeatedly kept saying “this is amazing”
