Easy and Low Carb: Moo Shu Chicken

June 15, 2009


One of my favorite dishes at Asian restaurants is Moo Shu Chicken so I decided to try my hand at creating a recipe that would be easy, flavorful and low-fat. This recipe came out great and even my kids loved it! I topped mine with peanuts and ate it without rice or tortillas to cut down on the carbs at night. It’s very filling and delicious.

Moo Shu Chicken

Prep: 10 minutes
Cook: 10 minutes
Yield: 4 servings
1/4 cup hoisin sauce
2 tablespoons low-sodium soy sauce
2 teaspoons dark sesame oil
2 cloves garlic, minced
1 teaspoon honey
2 pounds chicken breasts or chicken tenderloins, cut into 1-inch pieces
1 tablespoon vegetable oil
1 (16-ounce) package shredded cabbage with carrots coleslaw mix
1/3 cup lightly salted peanuts
1 Rice and/or flour tortillas (optional)
1. Whisk together hoisin sauce and next 4 ingredients in a small bowl.

2. Cook chicken in hot vegetable oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Stir-fry chicken for 2 to 3 minutes or until chicken turns pink. Stir in sauce, cooking and stirring until thickened and bubbly. Cook and stir 2 more minutes. Add cabbage mixture, stirring until coated well. Top with peanuts and serve over rice or in warmed tortillas, if desired.

We made this one night last week and it was SO yummy! What a great and easy lower fat, lower sodium, less expensive alternative to ordering Chinese delivery!
