Make It Now:

  1. In a large skillet over medium-high heat, heat 1 T of cooking oil. Brown the ground chicken, stirring often. Drain the grease, transfer the chicken to a plate, and set aside.
  2. Saute the yellow onion in the same pan until tender, stirring frequently. Add the garlic, soy sauce, hoisin sauce, ginger, rice wine vinegar, and hot sauce to the onions. Stir and let simmer 1-2 minutes.
  3. Stir in chopped water chestnuts, green onions, shredded carrots, shredded cabbage, browned meat and sesame oil, and continue cooking until the onions, carrots, and cabbage just begin to wilt, about 3-4 minutes. If mixture seems too dry, add more hoisin sauce and/or soy sauce to taste (just be cautious, as it can get too salty). (Freezing instructions begin here.)
  4. To serve, allow each person to spoon a portion of the meat mixture into a tortilla. Prepare to get messy and enjoy! Optional: Add cooked brown rice to the tortilla and then top with mixture.

Freeze For Later: Cook the veggie/meat mixture according to recipe, let it cool completely, and then freeze in a large freezer bag alongside a package of tortillas.

Prepare From Frozen: When ready to serve, thaw veggie/meat mixture and tortillas. Warm the meat mixture either in microwave and over low heat on the stove.
