Ingredients

  • Oil for frying 3-4 cups
  • 1 lb boneless skinless, chicken breast
  • 1 1/2 cup matchstick carrots
  • 2 cups cabbage mix like the coleslaw mix without the sauce
  • 16 eggroll wrappers

Sauce

  • 2 Tbs Hoison
  • 1 Tbs Oyster sauce
  • 1/2 cup Fresh squeezed lemon juice
  • zest of 1 lemon

Instructions

  • In a fryer or on the stovetop in a heavy bottom pot, pre-heat oil to 375 degrees.
  • In a small bowl, mix together sauce ingredients, and set aside
  • Chop chicken into small strips
  • Put chicken and sauce in a medium sized skillet, and cook chicken over medium-high heat until cooked through (5 - 7 minutes)
  • Remove chicken from pan, and place in a bowl. Leave as much of the sauce as you can.
  • Add veggies to the sauce, and satue for 3-5 minutes until just tender.
  • Assemble eggrolls by putting 1 1/2 Tbs of veggies, and a heaping Tbs of cooked chicken into the center, and folding/wrapping into an eggroll. Most eggroll wrapper packages have folding instructions.
  • Place eggrolls, 3-4 at a time into hot oil, and cook until wrapper is golden brown (3-5 minutes if temperature is constant). Cut open your first eggroll, if the outside is dark but the inside of the wrapper is still raw, turn heat down a little. If it takes too long to cook, turn it up some. 375 is the ideal temp, so using a temp regulated fryer is best.
  • Fry all the eggrolls and enjoy while hot.
