Mise en place

Cook the chicken
In a grill pan (or large pan, non-stick if possible), heat a drizzle of oil on medium-high. Pat the chicken dry with paper towel. In a large bowl, combine the chicken*, ¼ of the hoisin, a drizzle of oil and S&P. Cook, partially covered, 4 to 6 min. per side, until cooked through. Transfer to a plate.

Boil the vermicelli
Add the vermicelli to the pot of boiling water; stir gently to separate. Boil, 2 to 3 min., until al dente. Drain and rinse under cold water. Toss with a drizzle of oil to prevent sticking.
