This is a very tasty streamlined recipe for Chinese mu shu chicken. It makes a lot. Avoid overcooking the vegetables.
- 2 boneless skinless chicken breast halves
- 1 bunch green onion (1 cup chopped)
- 1 tablespoon peanut oil
- 1 tablespoon sesame oil
- 1 (8 ounce) packagecabbage coleslaw mix
- 1⁄2 cup sliced mushrooms
- 2 teaspoons cornstarch
- 1⁄4 cup sherry wine or 1⁄4 cup other wine
- 1⁄4 cup reduced sodium soy sauce
- 1⁄2 teaspoon minced garlic
- 1 (8 ounce) package broccoli coleslaw mix
- 1 cup shredded carrot (optional)
- 8 (8 inch) flour tortillas
- hoisin sauce or plum sauce, to taste
- Heat the peanut and sesame oil in a 12-inch nonstick skillet on medium.
- Slice the green onions, using all the whites and enough of the tender green tops to make about 1 cup.
- Immediately add the onions, shredded cabbage mix and mushrooms to the skillet.
- Raise the heat to high and cook to soften vegetables, stirring from time to time.
- Meanwhile, cut the chicken through its width (the short way) into 1/4 inch wide strips, adding strips to the skillet as you slice.
- Mix the cornstarch into the sherry and add it to the skillet along with the soy sauce and garlic.
- Stir well.
- Add the broccoli slaw and carrots (if desired) and stir.
- Continue to stir fry, stirring frequently, about 5 to 7 minutes until the chicken is no longer pink.
- Just before serving, put the tortillas on a plate and microwave, uncovered, 1 minute 30 seconds to warm through.
- To serve, spread hoisin sauce to taste on each tortilla (1/2 to 1 tsp) and spread 1/2 cup filing on each tortilla.
- Roll up, burrito style.
- Serve at once.
This was very good, but the tortillas threw the taste of the recipe off. I loved the ease of making it with packaged cole slaw and broccoli slaw mix. This made the recipe a perfect weeknight meal. And it does make alot! Made for All New Zaar Cookbook Tag.
Just as good (if not better) than any Mu Shu I've every eaten at a restaurant. Easy to make and very tasty. Like others mentioned I also added abit of hoisin right into the wok during cooking. Added abit of ginger with the garlic also. Enjoyed this recipe, thanks for sharing Chris.
Wonderful recipe! So easy and so yummy (and different). It's just the kind I like to collect. Thank you for posting it! I think I'd prefer to use wonton wrappers or at least homemade tortillas instead of store-bought. Also, my favorite Szechuan restaurant's Mu Shu Chicken is sweeter, so I poured and stirred some of the plum sauce directly into it. It was perfect.
