Hoisin Chicken Tacos
Here's an Asian twist for #TacoTuesday! Hoisin Sauce is used in Asian cooking.
This Hoisin Chicken taco is also like a twist on having Peking Duck with a thin pancake. Typically you eat Peking Duck with plum sauce, but that has a sweetness which has some similarities to Hoisin sauce.
For another idea of what to use Hoisin sauce for outside of Asian dishes, here's an idea:
Hoisin chicken with onions and bleu cheese
These tacos were made with a fresh tortilla recipe from houseofyumm.com . Check out that post!
What I used:
- Fresh Valley Chicken (~2-3 oz. for 2 tacos)
- Lee Kum Kee Hoisin Sauce (2 tsp or 1 tablespoon for 2 tacos)
- Cheddar Cheese
- Taco shells
I microwaved the Hoisin sauce with the chicken for 30-60 seconds. I have found that this is a quick hack that makes shelf-stable / canned chicken taste like it has been cooked on the stove or in the oven. Then I added cheddar cheese on top.
Yum! Give it a try! We are good at this!
