Crispy Baked Chicken Spring Rolls

Makes About 12 spring rolls

 

 

 

Ingredients:

1 Tablespoon minced garlic
2 teaspoons minced fresh ginger
1 teaspoon sesame oil
1 Tablespoon olive oil, plus more for brushing on rolls
1 pound ground chicken
1 cup finely shredded green cabbage

2 teaspoons minced fresh ginger
1 teaspoon sesame oil
1 Tablespoon olive oil, plus more for brushing on rolls
1 pound ground chicken
1 cup finely shredded green cabbage
2 scallions, finely chopped1 cup sliced shitake mushrooms
2 Tablespoons store-bought hoisin sauce
12 square (7-inch) spring roll wrappers (See Kelly's Notes)
Sweet chili sauce, for serving (See Kelly's Notes)

Directions:

Preheat the oven to 400ºF.

Sauté the garlic and ginger in the sesame and olive oils in large sauté pan set over medium-low heat.

Add the ground chicken to the pan, breaking it apart into small pieces, and sauté until fully cooked.

Add the mushrooms to the pan and sauté just until wilted. Remove the pan from the heat and drain out any liquid. Stir in the green cabbage, scallions and hoisin sauce until thoroughly combined. Transfer the mixture to a large bowl and let it cool for 10 minutes.

Arrange the spring roll wrappers on a dry work surface then place 3 to 4 tablespoons of the chicken mixture in the center of each of the spring roll wrappers. Roll the wrappers around the mixture, folding the edges inward. Before your final fold, dip your fingers in water and then moisten the outer edge of the wrapper to seal the spring roll shut. (See Kelly's Notes.)

Arrange the spring rolls in a single layer on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper or a Silpat nonstick baking mat. Brush the tops of the rolls with olive oil then bake them for 10 to 12 minutes, rotating after 6 minutes, until they're golden brown and crispy. Remove the spring rolls from the oven and serve them immediately with the sweet chili sauce.

Kelly's Notes:

Spring roll wrappers can be found in the Asian section of most supermarkets. I highly recommend the Nasoya Egg Roll wrappers, which are found in the refrigerated section of Whole Foods stores.

Sweet chili sauce can usually be found by the ketchup in most supermarkets. I prefer the Frank's brand of RedHot Sweet Chili Sauce.

The number one rule to successful spring rolls is to roll tightly! The less space you leave within the spring roll, the less chance of it falling apart while baking.

The rolls can be prepared up to three hours in advance and stored in an air-tight container in the fridge. Remove them from the fridge and bake them when ready to serve.
