Celebrate Chinese New Year: Teriyaki Chicken Egg Rolls

Easy Teriyaki Chicken Egg Rolls - events to CELEBRATE!

Chinese New Year is in just a few days and this is the year of the Horse! I like to celebrate with my family by making our favorite Chinese (or American-ized versions) dishes. These Teriyaki Chicken Egg Rolls are really simple, but really delicious! They use just a few ingredients, and are a great way to sneak in vegetables you may not normally serve (cabbage anyone?). You could also add in mushrooms and or shredded zucchini. Both would be great in these!

The basics to making them are simple. Make the filling by sauteing your vegetables until crisp tender, then add the marinated chicken.

Fill and roll your egg rolls and then fry to a golden brown. They are simple and delicious. I love to serve them with steamed rice and grilled pineapple.
