Chinese Pancakes, Beijing Chicken Pancakes with Hoisin Sauce

The perfect Chinese pancakes with Hoisin Sauce. The Hoisin Sauce is the main taste maker of the delicious pancakes, here is what it looks like:
Hoisin sauce is sweet (not too sweet-just perfect), brownish sauce, typically Chinese. It is used as a condiment and also as a seasoning for other Chinese meals. The main ingredients of Hoisin's sauce are fermented soybeans, sugar, garlic, chili peppers and spices, such as Chinese five-spice or star anise.

The best consistency of the commercially available Hoisin sauce is like that of ketchup.
The chicken filling  for the Chinese pancakes!

The pancake (small and broken, oh well, but pancake, yeah!)

 Pancake all filled up with chicken, just roll it and it is ready to eat.
Chinese chicken pancake, topped with chicken, some cucumber pieces, Hoisin sauce spread over the base. It is delicious, believe you me.
When you touch this, it feels like a living thing, a chicken! tender, soft, cute, adorable, something that you want to gobble up then and there. It's not even fuzzy, so you really can eat it. Okay, I am sure now that I would never be good at promotional techniques.
Roll-up is not "perfect" but when you have these Pan CAKEES in your hands, you are so desperate to have them in your mouth that you don't care how they look like when rolled up. The hands are clumsy, the mouth is watering. ^_^
Want to have some? :)
