Meal: Oriental Chicken Wraps

By Rudolf Ragin

Dear Recipe Goldmine Friends,

I know it has been really a although considering that I final visited. Although I frequently think about you all, it truly is now extremely apparent how demanding my job is with regards to time spent–lots of lengthy hours, including weekends.

I am nevertheless the "head cook" at home and have done really a bit of cooking. More often than not, I find that by the time I finish cooking, reading a bedtime story to my daughter and complete a few household chores, it’s already late at night.

I love my new job (it’s been almost a year because I started), but I do not have the freedom that I used to enjoy. I’ve also learned that monetary gain and freedom DO NOT exactly go hand in hand (smile). On a brighter note, I will soon be moving closer to work, so that I don’t have to spend 1 1/2 hours commuting every day. I also look forward to having more time to do things that I enjoy.

I have managed to put together many new recipes during the past two months. Many, such as this Chinese chicken wrap one, were written on my pad as I cooked or the following morning on my way to work as I sat on the subway staring into a sea of sleepy faces. The recipes were later loaded on my desktop computer. I am ashamed to admit that the below recipe has sat in one of my computer files for weeks. Sorry!

This Chinese chicken wraps recipe is especially good if you have fallen into a dining rut and want something different. Most of the ingredients, with the exception of the Zhen Jiang vinegar, are readily in your supermarket. Try your local oriental supermarket for Zhen Jiang Vinegar. If you can’t find it there, just use Heinz regular distilled vinegar. The flavor, however, will be slightly different, but nonetheless good.

During the past two months or so, I’m sure that there have been many changes with a lot of you, hopefully for the better. Have a great week and look forward to seeing you again.

Regards, Cookin’ Dad

Next, add bell peppers and stir-fry for about 1 to 2 minutes before adding all other vegetables. Stir-fry for about 2 minutes more before removing from wok and set aside.

Next, heat a little oil in wok and add chicken. After stir-frying for about 30 seconds, drizzle about 2 tablespoons white wine or Chinese rice wine over chicken. Continue cooking chicken until done (about 2 minutes). Remove from wok.

After wiping wok clean, pour in sauce and bring to boil. Add cornstarch mixed with water and reduce heat. Simmer until thickened (mixture should be fairly viscous like a gravy). Next, add veggies and chicken to sauce mixture. Stir until these ingredients are well-coated.

Lastly, spoon about 2 to 3 tablespoons filling into tortillas that have been wrapped in foil and heated in oven. Wrap tortillas as you would a burrito.

NOTE: This recipe has a lot of flexibility. You can adjust measurements such amount of vegetables to suit your own tastes. You can also make sauce as thick or thin as you like. I don’t like mine too runny but, on the other hand, a paste-like texture isn’t too appealing either (smile).
