Easy Chicken Egg Rolls

Print PrintShare with Friends

Prep:

I like this recipe because it uses already prepared ingredients found in your produce department with the packaged salad greens. Great egg rolls without all the work for those after work meals. (of which I need often) Leave the chicken out for vegetarian egg rolls or substitute shrimp for seafood eggrolls. Keep the oil hot and fry quickly to keep egg rolls from becoming greasy. They only need to brown and crisp, not cook. Frying only 3 or 4 at a time while rolling the others will make it easier to keep track of both the rolling and frying at the same time (unless you have a helper in your kitchen to do one or the other). Serve with my easy sweet and sour dipping sauce (recipe #112947) for a real taste treat. Since preparation (rolling) and cook time can be done at the same time, times are approximate. Recipe came from my friend and co-worker, Teri. Thank you Teri!
