Success - Article sent! close


1 small mango, peeled and diced

2 tablespoons coarsely chopped fresh cilantro

1 tablespoon lime juice


tablespoons toasted sesame oil

3 cups shredded Napa cabbage

1 cup shredded carrots


cup sliced scallions


cup lightly salted peanuts, coarsely chopped

2 tablespoons lime juice

1 tablespoon soy sauce


teaspoon ground black pepper

2 cups shredded cooked chicken


cup coarsely chopped fresh mint

4 burrito-size (large) flour tortillas


cup purchased peanut sauce

For the salsa: In a small bowl, stir together the mango, cilantro and lime juice. Cover and refrigerate until ready to serve.

For the wraps: In a large skillet over medium-high, heat the sesame oil. Add cabbage and carrots and saute until the vegetables begin to soften, about 2 minutes. Stir in the scallions and peanuts. Add the lime juice, soy sauce and black pepper, then saute until the mixture is heated through, about 2 minutes longer.

Remove the pan from the heat and stir in the chicken and mint.

Spread the center of each tortilla with about 1 tablespoon of peanut sauce. Top with a quarter of the chicken filling. Fold in 2 ends of the tortilla, then roll up. Place the wraps on a microwave safe plate, seam-side down.

Heat the wraps in the microwave on high until heated through, about 11/2 minutes, or in a 350 degrees oven for about 5 minutes. Serve with the mango salsa.

Serves four.
