Mu Shu Chicken Lettuce Wraps

  • 1/4 c low-sodium soy sauce
  • 2 tablespoon dry sherry
  • 2 tablespoon hoisin sauce (found in Asian section of grocery store)
  • 2 teaspoon rice vinegar
  • 2 tablespoon sesame oil
  • 2 tablespoon minced garlic
  • 2 tablespoon minced peeled fresh ginger (I used the pre-ground ginger found in produce section)
  • (14-ounce) package coleslaw (about 4 cups) 
  • 4 c shredded skinless, boneless rotisserie chicken breast***
  • 1/2 cup sliced green onions, divided
  • 24 Bibb lettuce leaves (I used romaine)
1/2 cup chopped cashews 
  1. In a bowl, whisk together the first 7 ingredients.
  2. In a large saucepan, combine liquid with rotisserie chicken until heated through (add in 1/4 c of green onions)
  3. In lettuce leaves, layer coleslaw mix and chicken.
  4. Top with remaining green onions and chopped cashews.

It's not often that I give a recipe 5 stars, but this one is deserving.  It has great flavor, is healthy, fresh, and FAST!  You can have a meal ready to serve company in less than 10 minutes.  Are you kidding me?  My two year old devoured it, my 10 year old gave it 2 thumbs up, and my husband ate 2 platefuls. This recipe is a keeper!!!  ***Just a side note... if you use regular baked chicken breast instead of rotisserie chicken you may want to make more sauce as it generally absorbs more than the rotisserie chicken does.
