Sesame Lime Chicken Egg Rolls

While making these Sesame Lime Chicken Egg Rolls for my husband at lunch today, I told him “I don’t know why anyone would ever buy frozen egg rolls.”  They are ridiculously easy to make.  It took me less than 10 minutes to assemble all my egg rolls after I had my mixture put together.  Plus, they are so easy to just pop a few out and put into the oven for a quick snack or lunch.

    This sounds delicious. How do you “flash freeze” something?

    Sounds great! I don’t happen to have cabbage mix on hand, do you think it would work with shredded carrots and/or celery?

    Awesome way to use up my leftover rotisserie chicken from last night. I doubled it and I bet I won’t have any leftovers. ;) Thanks for the inspiration!
