Baked Chicken Egg Rolls: Un-Chained Recipe Contest

One of my biggest fast-food temptations are greasy fried egg rolls from places like Panda Express. I made over this healthy version using lean chicken and fresh vegetables. Baking the egg rolls instead of frying them saves even more calories and these don't disappoint! They're flavor packed and I can make them often without feeling guilty. I serve them at parties, or for dinner with a side of brown rice. (Un-Chained Recipe Contest Entry- Fast Food Category)Submitted by SARASMITTY
