Asian-Style Chicken Wraps


We cooked the rotisserie chicken in step 1 to warm the meat and crisp the skin. If roasting your own chicken, continue cooking it until skin is very dark, 10 to 15 minutes more.

  • 1 cooked chicken (about 2 1/2 pounds)
  • 8 store-bought crepes (4 1/2-ounce package)
  • 2/3 cup hoisin sauce
  • 6 scallions, slivered


  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Place cooked chicken on a rimmed baking sheet; roast until skin is very dark and crispy, 20 to 25 minutes. Transfer to a cutting board. When cool enough to handle, cut breast meat (with skin) from bone, and slice thinly across the grain; pull bones from legs, and shred meat and skin.

  2. Stack crepes on a microwave-safe plate, and cover with a paper towel; microwave just until warm and pliable, 15 to 25 seconds.

  3. Trim roots and ends from scallions and discard. Wash well, and dry with paper towel. Cut crosswise into 3-inch pieces. Slice pieces lengthwise as thinly as possible.

  4. Pour hoisin sauce into a small serving dish; arrange sauce, crepes, chicken, and scallions on a platter. Let guests assemble wraps.

    Yummy and easy! I make this a lot. My local market sells hot cooked rotisserie chickens for $5 so if I'm out and running late for dinner I pick up a chicken and serve it like this. I don't have crepes on hand so I use flour tortillas and also add slivered cucumber and cilantro with the scallions. The left over rotisserie chicken makes great chicken noodle soup the next day.

    This was too dry for our liking. I had even added cucumber matchsticks.

    Hoisin sauce can be purchased at your local grocery store in the international or asian foods section. Lee Kum Kee makes one variety. It is a concoction of bean paste, molasses, garlic, vinegar and a few other things. If you can't find it, search for a recipe on the Internet. You will certainly find one there.
