Super Bowl has come and gone. As always, our friends host such a good party. Good food, good friends and good times are always had. My contribution to the endless buffet were these pretty tasty BBQ chicken egg rolls. I wanted BBQ chicken pizza, but not wanting to make pizza, I figured I would put all the toppings in an egg roll wrapper and low and behold it worked! And was pretty tasty at that! Here’s my recipe that makes 24 egg rolls.
BBQ Chicken Egg Rolls
5 boneless, skinless chicken breast halves
BBQ rub (I use Famous Dave’s Rib and Chicken rub)
Olive oil to coat the chicken
Sweet Baby Ray’s BBQ Sauce (Original)
½ red onion diced and caramelized
2-3 green onions chopped
2-3 tablespoons cilantro loosely chopped
1 8oz. bag of Monterey Jack/Colby mix shredded cheese
1 package egg roll wrappers
Oil for frying
Preheat oven to 450 degrees. Cover chicken breasts with olive oil and sprinkle with BBQ rub on both sides. Place in glass baking dish and bake for 20 minutes, or until done. When cool, chop chicken and mix with caramelized onions, bacon, BBQ sauce, green onions and cilantro.
Wrap about two tablespoons of chicken mix and a tablespoon of cheese in an egg roll wrapper according to directions that are included in the package. Fry in oil until golden brown. Drain on paper towels. Serve immediately or re-warm in oven if serving later. Feel free to serve w/ ranch dressing or onion flavored sour cream.
