Baked Thai Chicken Egg Rolls
Blogging with a baby in the house has been interesting. Obviously, I don’t always get everything done that I want to, but as long as she is fed, she is usually pretty happy to watch Mommy cook away in the kitchen and take photos. I typically just slide her Rock and Play up to the table next to me while I shoot photos and she just sits there and watches me. Lately though, she seems pretty curious to see what is actually going on on the table. While I was shooting these egg rolls, she started getting fussy so I picked her up and she just stared at everything on the table with such interest and started babbling. Gah! She melts my heart!
After I posted my Baked Southwestern Egg Rolls last year, I have been thinking about more egg roll recipes to make and these Thai Egg Rolls were next.
Let’s talk about the filling for these puppies. Oh goodness, is it yummy! I almost can say that you don’t even need the egg roll wrappers because as I was making these, I just kept eating it with a fork. These taste nice and fresh with chopped red bell pepper, carrots, and basil. The mixture is then lightly tossed in a spicy peanut sauce. It goes perfectly with the crunchy egg rolls which are baked instead of fried. You could serve these as an appetizer or even lunch.
