Moo Shu Chicken Wraps

Moo Shu Chicken WrapsThis recipe was inspired by a meal plan I saw. The original recipe called for tortillas, cole slaw mix and plain boiled chicken, I heavily adapted it.  I picked up a package of actual Moo Shu pancakes instead. I had debated trying to make my own, but it was really daunting. The next time I make this, I will try my hand at the pancakes, having the pre-made ones as a back up. This dish was amazingly easy and would be just as nice with pork. If only I could wrap the pancakes as well as they do at Kam's.  That being said, these cost way less than $10.95 to make and I didn't have to leave a tip for the stellar pancake rolling.
Moo Shu Chicken Wraps

2 boneless skinless chicken breasts
¼ teaspoon ginger
¼ teaspoon garlic powder
¼ teaspoon Sesame oil
1 tablespoon vegetable oil
½ cup sliced cabbage (I used a mix of green and purple)
¼ cup bean sprouts
2 carrots, grated
1 tablespoon soy sauce
2 tablespoons hoisin sauce
8 Moo Shu pancakes

Place chicken in a small sauté pan, add just enough water to cover the chicken. Add the ginger, garlic and Sesame oil to the pan. Cook over medium heat until chicken is cooked through, approximately 10 minutes. Drain and shred the chicken. Heat the vegetable oil in a nonstick skillet. Add the cabbage, bean sprouts and carrots, cook for about 2-3 minutes (just until slightly softened but still crunchy). Add the chicken pieces and cook to heat through for another 1 or 2 minutes. Stir in the soy sauce and hoisin sauce. Remove from the heat. Serve filling rolled into pancakes.

Oh my, this recipe looks awesome, but I have to ask... what are Moo Shu pancakes? They look like tortilla wraps in the picture! Are they the same?

Ooooh...I want. I almost ordered Moo Shu Pork when we got takeout a couple of weeks ago but went with something cheaper at the moment of truth, and regretted it as soon as the delivery arrived. :(

These look great! I have been on an Asian kick for dinner lately and these will definitely be added to the menu next week.

Yum!!! They look so good! I love recipes like this, I too am a little curious what Moo Shu pancakes are and where you found them?

Moo Shu Pancakes are in the freezer section, they are really thin pancakes that you defrost just 5 minutes before serving. Super easy!

The purple cabbage in your wrap looks really pretty. I made a veggie version recently and use tortilla's. Will check in the freezer section of the Chinese grocery for the real ones. Do they taste much different from tortillas?
