The first time I tasted the likes of this dish was as an appetizer at PF Chang’s. I wanted to order another batch and forget dinner! But alas, I was with dear family and friends who had other plans, so I kept my mouth zipped. A closed mouth helped my busy mind with mental notes. I could replicate this delicious item in my own kitchen. Yes indeed!
It turns out this dish is really simple and quick. Your greatest challenge will be locating good quality freshly ground chicken. Once you have that base covered, you will be amazed at how quickly the chicken wraps come together.
The adapted recipe below is not as sweet as the PF Chang rendition. If I am going to make a meal of these wraps, there needs to be a measured amount of sugar. The sweet is brought into the recipe by the hoisin sauce. Should you decide your want wraps closer to the PF Chang version, then add more hoisin, a little at a time, until you have reached your preferred sweetness.
Leftover chicken just needs a bit of warming to serve it in the next few days. You might also consider freezing enough of the prepared chicken to make up a whole meal at a later day. This chicken recipe maintains quality for at least 3 months of freezer time.
Leftover chicken makes super travel food. It’s not messy to carry or consume. Carry the lettuce leaves in one container and the chicken in another. Include a spoon for dipping and napkins for cleaning up afterward. It works beautifully!
