Egg Roll in a Bowl

September 27th, 2018 | no comments

My body doesn’t like fried food, which means I can’t remember the last time I had an egg roll. I always loved the taste of them, so when I ran across this recipe I couldn’t help but put my own little twist on it and share with you! The original recipe comes from petitechefblog.com.

I don’t prefer pork so I used Gerber’s Amish Farm Dark Meat Chicken. It contains a moderate amount of fat (9 grams per serving versus 0 grams for white meat ground chicken), which is important to me because I like a more juicy texture.

When served by itself, Egg Roll in a Bowl may leave you feeling like you just ate a meal from the local Chinese restaurant…hungry an hour later. If I were you I would serve this as a tasty side dish or over a bed of quinoa.
