Teriyaki Chicken Spring Rolls
Recipe type: Appetizer, Entree
Total time: 
We ate these as a main dish with a large side salad, but they work just as well as an appetizer. Use the filling in lettuce wraps, spring roll wrappers, wonton cups, or rice paper wraps as pictured!
  • 1 Tbsp vegetable oil
  • 1 lb chicken breasts, chopped small
  • 1 garlic clove, minced
  • 1 slice fresh ginger, minced, or ¼ tsp ground ginger
  • 2 green onions, thinly sliced
  • 1 red pepper, seeded and diced
  • 6 large mushrooms, finely chopped
  • 1 stalk celery, halved lengthwise and finely chopped
  • Handful fresh bean sprouts
  • 1 head iceberg lettuce, romaine, or endive OR 12 rice paper spring roll wrappers
  • Plum sauce (for dipping - optional)
  • SAUCE:
  • ⅛ cup vegetable oil
  • ⅛ soy sauce
  • 1 Tbsp ketchup
  • ½ Tbsp white vinegar
  • ¼ tsp ground pepper
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  1. Whisk together all sauce ingredients in small measuring cup and set aside.
  2. Heat vegetable oil in large frying pan on medium-high heat. When hot, add chicken, garlic, ginger and green onions. Sauté until chicken is browned and cooked through. Add red pepper, mushrooms and celery, then stir in sauce.
  3. If sauce is too thin, combine 1 Tbsp cornstarch with 2 Tbsp cold water in a small bowl and stir into sauce in pan to make it thicken.
  4. Serve the meat "taco style" wrapped in lettuce, or wrap in rice paper wrappers: soak one rice paper wrap at a time in a shallow pie plate filled with warm water just until pliable (about 10 seconds). Remove to dry surface and scoop 1-2 Tbsp of meat mixture into the low centre. Fold up bottom, fold in sides, then roll to enclose filling completely. Place on parchment paper-lined baking sheet. Repeat with remaining wraps and filling.
  5. Bake at 400 degrees Fahrenheit for 20-25 minutes, turning rolls once with tongs halfway through cooking time. Serve with plum sauce for dipping.
  6. Serves 6 as an appetizer, 2-3 as a main course.
