These Baked Chicken and Vegetable Egg Rolls are quick, easy, flavor packed, healthy, fun, frugal, adaptable, customizable and freezable. That's a lot of words for a little pocket of goodness.
I baked these because I did not have enough oil to fry them. Since these crisp up so quickly frying is actually not as unhealthy as you might think. Follow the directions on the egg roll wrappers.
If you want to save them in the freezer for a later meal, just under cook them slightly, freeze in a zip to lock bag then defrost and bake until crisp again.
