{September 25, 2008}   Mandarin Orange Chicken Salad Wraps

Super Belated Dinner Diva… This was a would be road food on our menu 2 times, but both times replaced eating on the go with a sit down meal… Once I finally made it I still didn’t get around to posting it, but can I say I LOVED this! We made it with a cold rotisserie chicken ($3.33, I think, since they’d pulled it from the heat lamps and chilled it… so really not worth the effort to roast your own anymore at that price, so we bought 3 and froze two in gallon ziplocs for future laziness…) which made it so blooming easy… But it really wouldn’t have been much harder to cook the chicken if you were making a smaller batch, we just didn’t want to have to cook meat in two batches so this was a perfect fix as everything go done at once and really in very little time… plus leftovers for later, so win-win… minimum effort, maximum food… Very Yummy, we all really enjoyed this… (and the base was even a cooking light recipe, so maybe I should try more of their stuff… as this was actually tasty…)

the orginal recipe

Mandarin Orange Chicken Salad Wraps **
meat pulled from 1 rotisserie chicken (minus skin)
4 tsp Watkin’s garlic-ginger grapeseed oil (bought from one of Hub’s friend’s to support her efforts, easy enough to infuse your own though)
1 tsp salt
1/2 tsp cayenne
2 (11 oz) cans mandarin oranges in juice (reserve 1/4 c juice when draining)
1/2 c green onion
1/4 c chive
2 tsp minced garlic
1 c chicken broth
2 T tamari (or dark soy sauce)
2 T cornstarch
1 head of cabbage, shredded
8 oz bean sprouts
8 lg flour tortillas

Warm chicken, oil, s/p, 1 can oranges, 1/4 c juice/syrup from oranges, onions, chives and garlic over med heat. Combine broth, tamari, and cornstarch; add to pan. Bring to a boil; simmer until thickened. Add other can of drained oranges (after this is when I took half out). Add cabbage and sprouts and toss well to coat/dress them then just wrap up in the tortillas…

** I only assembled half of this so I pulled half the meat mixture off to the side to cool for packing away, and only used half the cabbage, sprouts and tortillas…
