1 teaspoon sesame oil
1 cup shredded leftover white meat chicken, skin and fat removed
One 1-pound package coleslaw mix, or 5 cups shredded cabbage
3 ounces shiitake mushrooms, stems discarded, thinly sliced
5 scallions, white parts and 3 inches of the green, thinly sliced
1 tablespoon minced fresh ginger
1 garlic clove, minced
3 tablespoons hoisin sauce
1 teaspoon garlic chili sauce
Four 8-inch whole wheat tortillas


  1. Heat the oil in a large nonstick skillet.
  2. Add the chicken, coleslaw mix, mushrooms, scallions, ginger and garlic.
  3. Stir-fry over medium-high heat for 3 minutes, or until the coleslaw has wilted.
  4. Stir in the hoisin and garlic chili sauce.
  5. Reheat the tortillas in the microwave following package directions.
  6. Place one-fourth of the chicken and vegetables in each wrap. Roll up and serve immediately.

Note: No leftover chicken in the fridge? Poach 1 pound skinless, boneless chicken breasts by placing the chicken in a covered pan with stock halfway up the sides. Bring to a simmer. Check with the point of a knife after 4 to 5 minutes. Or place the chicken in a microwave-safe dish with broth or water to cover the bottom of the dish. Cover with wax paper and cook on High for 4 minutes. Check for doneness. If not opaque throughout, microwave on High for another 1 to 2 minutes (juices should run clear when the chicken is pierced with a knife).
