Chicken Egg Roll Stir Fry

I really enjoy Asian type foods, but up until recently, I was a little intimidated to try cooking them.  However, now that I have a few delicious favorites under my belt, I’ve decided I’m not going to be intimidated by them any more!

An early favorite of our family was this Cashew Sesame Noodles dish.  Once you have all the ingredients on hand, it is an absolute cinch to make, and a definite crowd pleaser, AND the only thing you have to cook are the noodles.

One more delicious favorite are these Baked Chicken & Spinach Egg Rolls.  Most people like just about anything if you wrap it up in an egg roll!  😛

Here is what you need to make this:
2 to 2 1/2 cups cooked, diced chicken ( I used rotisserie chicken)
1 16 ounce bag pre-shredded tri-color cole slaw
2 teaspoons minced garlic (jarred kind)
1 teaspoon ginger paste (in the refrigerated produce section)
2 Tablespoons sesame oil
1 Tablespoon vegetable oil
1/4 cup light soy sauce
1 teaspoon white granulated sugar
pinch of black pepper optional

First make up your sauce so it’s ready to go when you need it.  To do this, mix together the garlic, ginger paste, oils, soy sauce, sugar (and pepper if desired). Don’t skip the sugar, even though it’s a tiny amount, it gives a nice balance with the sodium in the soy sauce.
