Ingredients
Amount Item
10  lb Diced chicken, fully-cooked
3/4  gal Hot water (180°-190°F), divided
1  bag Foothill Farms® Mandarin Orange Sauce (#V428)
1  bag Foothill Farms® Asian Noodles (#S141)
3  lb Shredded cabbage
80  bags Doritos® Brand Spicy Sweet Chili Reduce-Fat Tortilla Chips
Instructions
  1. To prepare chicken: Thaw chicken in cooler overnight or until fully thawed.

  2. To prepare sauce: Pour 1/2 gal hot water into mixing container. Pour contents of Sauce Mix (16.5 oz each) into water while vigorously stirring with a wire whisk. Continue stirring until mix is dissolved and sauce is smooth.

  3. Divide chicken into full line pans. Pour sauce evenly over. Place in 350°F convection oven for 15 - 20 minutes or until internal temperature reaches 165°F. Remove from oven and place product in warming cabinet until served. Hold at temperature above 140°F.

  4. To prepare noodles: Cook noodles according to al dente package directions. Drain and rinse in cool water to stop cooking. While noodles are cooking, add contents of Noodle Seasoning packet to 1 qt hot water. Mix well and let sauce sit at least 5 minutes. Pour sauce over noodles and toss to coat. Sauce will absorb into noodles. Place in half pan until served. Hold at temperature above 140°F.

  5. Gently crush chips then cut open the top (or the side) of the bag.

  6. Add 1/4 c Asian Noodles, 1/4 c shredded cabbage, 2 oz Mandarin Orange Chicken directly into bag.

  7. Stir together and head out the door with your bagful of Asian-Style Walking Taco.
