Mooshu Chicken Wraps

I love Chinese Take-out!  I could eat it once a week if my budget and waistline would cooperate.  What I don't love about most Chinese food is the MSG and preservetives that are added to the food.  So, to cure my cravings we've been experimenting with different dishes to create the perfect substitute.  These tasty little wraps are one of my favorites.

Mooshu Chicken Wraps
Makes 2 servings
1 grilled chicken breast seasoned with salt and pepper and sliced thin*
1/4 head cabbage, chopped
1 carrot, shredded
2 large flour tortillas/wraps

while chicken is cooking, mix together the following for the sauce:
3 tbsp cold water
2 tbsp soy sauce
1 tbsp cornstarch
1 tsp toasted sesame oil
1 tsp sugar
1 clove garlic, minced
whisk together in a small saucepan, heat until thickened.  Add more water if it gets too thick.  Needs to be a syrup like consistency.

When chicken is cooked, slice thin and coat it with sauce. Toss cabbage and carrot together.  On each tortilla, place half of the cabbage and carrot mixture. Top with chicken.  Drizzle with a bit of Hoisin sauce.  Roll up and enjoy.

*Can also be done with pork, or beef.

So, next time you are in the mood for take-out and want to "try it yourself" this is the perfect way to ease into it.  You won't be disappointed!

  2. Hi, may i know what cooking method did u use to cook the chicken?

    1. I seasoned the chicken with salt and pepper, then grilled it on the bbq grill. You could broil it as well and get the same flavors. Thanks for checking out my blog :)
