Chicken Taco Egg Rolls

What shall we do with the leftovers?

Like I said before, I am addicted to egg rolls and so versatile especially for leftovers. I had three pieces of cooked chicken breast from another dinner that it would be not enough for the 4 of us. I thought of chicken taco but I didn’t have enough of stuff to make the tacos and a lightbulb came on. I had the egg roll wrappers that I made to make something else but I used it for this.

Here is the recipe to make the dough for the EGG ROLL WRAPPERS

In a small bowl, shred the chicken and set aside.

In a large pan, add 2 tbsp. olive oil, add your minced garlic and veggies. Keep stirring till the veggies are cooled. Add the chicken , taco seasoning and water. Stir till its all mixed well and seasoning has thicken. If you want to make it a little spicier, you can one jalapeno, unseeded and minced or 1 tsp. red pepper flakes.
