Baked Creamy Chicken Southwest Egg Rolls

Just made this last night and thought I would share.  Adapted from several recipes I have found…

These were so tasty, the only way I could get a photo was by snapping a quick one on my cell phone before my family ate them all!

Baked Creamy Chicken Southwest Egg Rolls

2 boneless, skinless chicken breasts

1 container cream cheese (I use non-fat)

1 cup shredded cheese (I use low-fat pepperjack or mexican mix)

Salsa

1 package of won-ton wrappers

Grill Chicken and dice into small pieces -OR- cook in slowcooker in low sodium chicken broth and shred.

Preheat the oven to 425˚ F.

Mix chicken (still warm), 4 tbsp of salsa, cream cheese and shredded cheese in mixing bowl.

Lay out egg roll wrappers and place about a ¼ cup of the filling in the center of each.   Mixture should fill about 15 – 20 wrappers.

Fold the wrappers like little burritos.  Fold both ends in.  **Make sure the ends are in well, and no holes exposed.  Otherwise the innards will spill out!**  Fold one side over the mixture, then seal the egg rolls by dipping your finger in water and lightly brush on the edges of the free corner.  Simply fold it over and seal it closed.  Repeat with the remaining wrappers and filling.

Lightly grease cookie sheet with cooking spray.  Place the egg rolls seam side down onto the sheet, and then lightly coat the tops of the egg rolls with the spray.  

Bake 15 minutes, or until lightly brown, flipping them halfway through baking.  

Let cool slightly (they will be HOT!)  Serve with remaining salsa 🙂

Another Featured Seller: Orchard Farm Soap

Today, I spent a wonderful morning with my Mother and Daughter at Artfest, an amazing art and crafts show in Spokane’s Browne’s Addition Area.  Artfest happens every year, and is always filled with amazing artisans, great live music and tons of delicious food.  My mother and I have been going for longer than I can remember, and Angie has been attending since I use to have to push her in a stroller.

 

Anyway, today at Artfest I had the pleasure to meet, in person, my fellow Etsian and Inland Northwest team-mate, Kate Jaeckel from Orchard Farm Soap.  Kate makes some of the most amazing cold process soaps I have ever had the pleasure to get my dirty little hands on!  She also makes lotion bars, salves, lip balms, teas, perfumes and candles… and much, much more.  And the best thing is that all of her products are made from scratch with fair trade, organic oils, and botanicals grown on her very own farm.

As I spoke with Kate and her wonderful assistant (I’m assuming it was her husband, but never actually asked), I checked out her wonderful products and fell in love with her soaps.  As I ohh’d and ahh’d at all of the products, my daughter Angie told me that I should really buy something from her, being that she was my team-mate and all… like she really had to twist my arm.  Angie knows that I am a total soap and lip balm junkie.  It’s my crack.

 

I love chai tea, so as soon as I saw the Rooibos Chai Soap, I snagged myself a bar.  It smells so wonderful… I can’t wait to use it.

I also let Angie pick out a soap.  Even though she makes her own soap, she always loves and is inspired by other soap makers.  She is always fascinated by cold process soaps, especially all natural and organic cold process soap – which she hopes to learn how to make some day.  She loves patchouli, so she was immediately drawn to the Patchouli Orange Soap Bar.

After she took a shower tonight, the most amazing aroma filled the upstairs….  it was heavenly!!  She loved the soap and said that it not only smelt great, it lathered wonderfully.

 

A big thanks to the lovely Kate (and to her wonderful assistant) for the soap.  It is always a pleasure to meet fellow team-mate!!
