Hoisin Chicken Tacos


Here's an Asian twist for #TacoTuesday! Hoisin Sauce is used in Asian cooking.

It is a sweet sauce, sort of like BBQ sauce, but more of a salty flavor & more umami flavor. It is used in Asian dishes "as a glaze for meat, an addition to stir fries, or asdipping sauce."

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!
