Paleo Mu Shu Chicken

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 Mu Shu Chicken (and their stiff drinks, woa. I’m amazed my liver made it through that year).

Anyhow, I could not get enough of the savory vegetable and egg filling all piled into a wrap. I was addicted and then I had to give it all up.

Well at least I thought so.

This recipe is crazy simple and if you don’t have the coconut wraps you can easily use lettuce leaves.

    I made this for dinner tonight, and it was delicious! I did not have any fish sauce, so I used just a smidge more sesame oil for flavor. Also didn’t have any of those delicious looking wraps, so I served it with jasmine rice. My husband and I LOVED it. Better than take out!
