Chicken & Cabbage Egg Rolls

Another  winner. Easy, economical and quick to prepare .
Unless you are lucky and have a great asian place nearby, these are so much better than most of the soggy, cabbage and carrots only crap they sell you in most neighborhood joints. As usual, most ingredients can be replaced with stuff you have in your fridge and cup board.  Replace the cabbage with shredded or diced vegetables of any kind, add other flavors like mushrooms, onions, etc. Colors like shredded beets, spinach, turmeric, etc. Proteins like seafood, ground beef, ground pork, etc. The combinations, texture of the filling and the possible flavors are just infinite. So, in the spirit of good eggrolls, go out and experiment. If you crave for standard mediocracy, you can always go back yo your corner “Happy Dragon” and have their frozen staple. If not, do the best YOU can do and find out how easy and great a home made fried or baked eggroll can be 🙂

Debone and dice chicken and skin, chop cabbage, chilis and garlic, grate ginger, slice scallions. Saute chicken in peanut oil until almost cooked through. Add all vegetables, continue to saute for another minute. Remove from heat, season with soy sauce, salt, sesame oil and sriracha,. Put  filling onto one end of the springroll wrapper, moist the edges with water. Roll into tight spring rolls. Fry until crispy and golden. Serve with your favorite dipping sauce /sauces. (I used peanut sauce and scotch bonnet sauce 🙂
