This authentic Moo Shu Chicken is tastes just like your favorite restaurant takeout. Using precooked chicken makes this recipe so simple that you’ll have dinner ready in 30 minutes tops!
When I moved to Portland, I soon discovered a Chinese restaurant a couple blocks from my apartment. I would make the jaunt every week or so for their delicious Moo Shu Chicken (and their stiff drinks, woah. I’m amazed my liver made it through that year).
This first time I ordered it, I had all kinds of questions like what is Moo Shu chicken? In a nutshell, it’s a stir-fry made savory vegetables, typically shiitake mushroom and cabbage and green onions and eggs all piled into a wrap.
When you order it in a restaurant, it’s typically served in a moo sho pancake but you can easily use a flour tortilla, lettuce leaf or coconut wraps as I have shown in my photos.
Anyhow, I could not get enough of them – I was addicted and then I had to give it all up when I went Paleo.
Well at least I thought so.
This recipe is crazy simple and the best part is that it used precooked chicken to make it even faster.
