Hoisin Chicken Rice Bowls

I came across this recipe in my Google Reader and knew that I wanted to make it right away. It encompassed flavors that I really like, I had all the ingredients and it came together quickly. What's not to like?

I will definitely be making these again...especially for a busy weeknight once school starts again.
