Chicken and Pepper Egg Rolls

Prep Time 30 minutes Cook Time 30 minutes

Crunchy golden egg rolls wrap around savory chicken, onions and peppers for a delicious dinner the whole family will love. Try baking instead of frying for a more calorie-conscious version. Reminiscent of Pepper Steak, these egg rolls aren't difficult to do and are packed with flavor. Use whatever color pepper strikes your fancy and watch the family devour them.

What you'll need

  • 1 pound boneless, skinless chicken breasts, cut into thin strips
  • 2 large bell peppers (any color) cut into thin strips
  • 1 medium onion, sliced thinly
  • 2 tablespoons soy sauce
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • 1 teaspoon freshly grated ginger
  • 12 egg roll wrappers
  • oil for frying

Helpful Tip:

Alternately these can be baked in the oven at 350° F for 10-12 minutes or until browned.

How to make it

  1. Heat a large pan over medium-high heat and add 2 tablespoons oil. Cook chicken strips just until no longer pink. Push to one side of pan.
  2. Add pepper and onion and cook for 5 minutes, stirring often.
  3. Add soy sauce, garlic and ginger and stir well. Cook until most liquid has evaporated.
  4. Remove from heat and cool for 15 minutes. This is important; adding hot ingredients to the egg roll wrappers will cause them to break down and leak.
  5. Once cooled, lay several strips of chicken, onion and peppers in the center of an egg roll wrapper that has been laid on a surface with one point toward you. Fold the right point over and under the filling. Fold the top and bottom points down and roll from right to left, securing the left point with a touch of water.
  6. Repeat with all wrappers and filling. Heat 1/2 inch of oil in a skillet over medium heat. Fry egg rolls, turning over once during cooking, until golden brown. Drain on paper toweling.
