Chicken Egg Rolls
Cooking Time: 6 min
What You'll Need:
1/2 cup soy sauce
1/4 cup packed light brown sugar
1 tablespoon ground ginger
2 teaspoons garlic powder
6 cups shredded Chinese cabbage
1 large carrot, peeled and shredded
3 scallions, chopped
1 cup diced cooked chicken
12 egg roll wrappers
1 egg, lightly beaten
Oil for frying
What To Do:
1. In a small bowl, combine soy sauce, brown sugar, ginger, and garlic powder; mix well.
2. In a large bowl, combine cabbage, carrot, scallions, and chicken; mix well. Pour soy sauce mixture over cabbage mixture; toss to coat well and let stand 10 minutes. Place cabbage mixture in a colander and squeeze to drain well.
3. Spoon about 1/2 cup cabbage mixture evenly onto center of each egg roll wrapper. Lightly brush edges of egg roll with beaten egg. Fold one corner of each egg roll wrapper up over cabbage mixture then fold both sides over, envelope fashion; roll up tightly.
4. In a deep medium saucepan over medium-high heat, heat about 1-1/2 inches oil until hot but not smoking. Add spring rolls in batches and fry 3 to 4 minutes per side, or until golden. Drain on a paper towel-lined platter. Serve immediately, but be sure to use caution -- the filling will be hot.
If you serve these with duck sauce or spicy mustard, they'll taste as good as (or better than!) the ones served in restaurants!
