Moo-Shu Chicken


  • 1 T. Sesame Oil (I used Olive)
  • 2 Cloves Garlic, Chopped
  • 1 Bag (10 Ounces) shredded coleslaw mix
  • 1 Bag (8 ounces) shredded carrots*
  • 4 scallions, sliced (I only used two because my husband whines about them)
  • 1/4 c hoisin sauce
  • 2 T soy sauce
  • 10 Flour Tortillas (6 in.)
  • 3 c shredded cooked chicken (I used Rotisserie chicken)

1. In a large skillet, heat oil over medium heat. Add the garlic, coleslaw mix, carrot and scallions. Cook, stirring occasionally, for 8 min, until vegetables are softened.

2. Stir in the hoisin and soy cause and cook 2 min. Add chicken; stir to combine with vegetables and heat through.

3. To serve, heat tortillas following package directions. Spoon 1/2 cup of chicken mixture onto tortilla and roll up.

Verdict: Tim loved them, Jayden ate them! I liked them but wished that I hadn't cooked the vegetables as much. They were limp and I was hoping for a bit of crunch.

Found: I found the recipe in this magazine.

* I purred the carrots instead of taking the time to shred them.
