Eggrolls


We have always enjoyed eating egg rolls. I was motivated to make them a healthier meal. So here is what I came up with. My daughter was just telling me the other night, she would like to have these once a week. Success! Those are words we all like to hear, when a repeat performance is requested. :) It is nice they are easy, and make a great dinner. I Love finding healthier ways to make food that I love.


Ingredients:

1 Pkg egg roll wrappers

1 14 oz canned chicken drained

1 pkg of coleslaw or broccoli slaw

3 T soy sauce

small bowl of water

oil for frying (grapeseed oil, olive, or coconut oil or other oil)*

optional--soy sauce or sweet and sour sauce for dipping

Directions:

1. In a medium bowl mix, chicken, slaw and soy sauce.

2. Lay an egg roll out flat. Scoop on a 2 -3 Tbsp of chicken mixture. In the center of the egg roll.

3. Roll the egg roll up like a burrito and seal the seam with water. Then fold the end in and seal with water too.

4. Heat up a frying pan. Pour in 3 T oil and fry until golden on both sides. (the meat is already cooked so no worries there.) Place on a paper towel to drain. You will probably have to add more oil when you put in a new batch.

5. Serve with your favorite dipping sauce or eat plain.

Makes about 9. You could make more if you spooned on smaller servings of chicken mixture.


*I used grapeseed oil last time and it worked great.
