12 flour tortillas (10 inch)
3/4 cup shredded carrots

3 Stir chicken mixture to break apart large pieces of chicken. Stir in sesame seed and sesame oil. Increase heat setting to High. Cover; cook about 15 minutes or until thoroughly heated.
4 Spread 2 teaspoons hoisin sauce on each tortilla. Using slotted spoon, spread about 1/3 cup chicken mixture down center of each tortilla. Top chicken mixture with 1 tablespoon shredded carrot, a few bell pepper strips, 2 teaspoons green onions and 1 tablespoon noodles.

For an easy Asian salad, toss chicken with mixed greens, green onions, mandarin orange segments and Asian dressing. Top with chow mein noodles.
