Hoisin Chicken Noodle Wraps


Wondering what to do with your leftover rotisserie chicken? Helen from Scrummylane.com has come up with this terrific 'Hoisin Chicken Noodle Wraps' recipe for you to try.

Helen told HIF, "This recipe is perfect for lazy days when you have leftover rotisserie chicken that you don't know what to do with. Just shred it up and stuff it in a tortilla with rice noodles, crispy veggies, chili and hoisin sauce. Believe me when I tell you this makes a VERY tasty lunch!"


  • 40 grams fine rice noodles
  • 2 tortillas
  • a couple of handfuls of watercress, or other green salad leaves of your choice
  • about a 10-cm piece cucumber, sliced into matchsticks
  • about ¼ of a red pepper, thinly sliced
  • about 2 handfuls cooked shredded chicken (leftover rotisserie chicken is great!)
  • 2 spring onions
  • 1 fresh red chili (optional)
  • 2 heaped tablespoons hoisin sauce
  • 1 lime


  • Soak the noodles in a bowl of boiling water for about 5 minutes. Drain well and set aside.
  • Warm the tortillas, either in a dry frying pan or in the microwave for 30 seconds.
  • Lay the tortillas on a clean board or work surface. Lay half the watercress/salad leaves down the centre, then top with the noodles, cucumber and red pepper. Then scatter over the chicken, spring onions and chili (if using).
  • Finally, drizzle over the hoi sin sauce and lime juice, then roll the wrap up as tightly as you can. Cut in half and enjoy immediately!

Helen also told us, "I can think of lots of great things about this wrap, but the best are (in no particular order!):

  • It's great for lunch or dinner.
  • The rice noodles don’t need any cooking, just 5 mins of soaking in boiling water. You already have your cooked chicken ready, remember, so that makes this a very quick and easy no-cook wrap!
  • Hoisin sauce is very flavourful, as you may well know, so you only need to drizzle a heaped tablespoon or so over the ingredients in your wrap. Fiddling about with other dressings not needed! (oh, apart from a generous squeeze or two of lime juice!)
  • The other little ‘bits’ you add to the wrap, as well as the chicken, noodles and hoisin sauce, can vary according to what you’ve got hanging about in your fridge.
