Intructions :
  • DAY BEFORE: Clean and cut up chicken. Marinate in refrigerator overnight.
  • Prepare dipping sauce by combining all ingredients, refrigerate overnight.
  • In a hot saute pan
  • pour about a tablespoon of canola oil. Add cabbage. Cover for 3 or 4 minutes until they begin to steam. Splash with soy sauce and chicken broth. Cover and cook for about 10 minutes or until cabbage reduces.
  • Add carrots and a splash of soy sauce. Cook on medium heat for another 2 or 3 minutes.
  • Add zucchini
  • onions
  • and bok choy. Splash with soy sauce and sesame oil, cover and cook for about 10 minutes or until vegetables are soft. NOTE: Taste veggies throughout the cooking process to determine the amount of soy sauce and stock to use. I add these ingredients for taste and moistness.
  • Add bean sprouts. Turn off the heat and cover. Let cool and refrigerate overnight.
  • NEXT DAY: Heat marinaded chicken in a medium saucepan until cooked through (about 5 minutes). Cool completely then drain off excess liquid. Place drained chicken in a bowl.
  • ASSEMBLY: Lay the egg roll wrapper down flat with a corner pointing at you. Starting with the veggies
  • spoon about 4 or 5 spoonfuls onto the middle of the wrapper
  • but slightly closer to you than the other point. Top with a few pieces of chicken. NOTE: Drain veggies if they appear too moist.
  • Run your finger around the edges with a wet finger.
  • Fold the tip closest to you over the lump of veggies and chicken. Then fold the outer corners over.
  • Begin rolling the egg roll away from you
  • tucking the sides in as you go. Seal the end with a tiny bit of water. (Try to roll them tight
  • but be careful not to rip them.)
  • Heat a half inch of canola oil in a frying pan. (Oil must be hot in order to avoid soggy egg rolls.) Carefully place each roll in the hot oil
  • rolling them around to achieve an even golden color. They cook very quickly
  • so begin turning them immediately.
  • Allow the egg rolls to cool for at least 5 minutes before eating. Serve with dipping sauce and enjoy! ]
