Ingredients

Spring Rolls

  • 3/4 lb chicken breast (boneless skinless) minced
  • 20 spring roll wrappers
  • 1/2 c onion finely diced
  • 1 large jalapeno
  • 2 tbsp cilantro minced
  • 2 tbsp canola oil plus more for frying
  • 2 tsp cumin
  • 1 tsp kosher salt
  • 1 tsp garlic powder

Cilantro Yogurt Sauce

  • 1 c greek yogurt plain
  • 1/2 c cilantro leaves
  • 2 tbsp lime juice
  • 1 tsp cumin
  • 1/4 tsp kosher salt

Instructions

Spring Rolls

  • Chop chicken breasts into 2-inch chunks and toss with salt. Add salted chicken to a food processor and pulse several times until the meat is reduced to fine bits*
  • Place a skillet over medium heat and add canola oil, chicken, onion, jalapeno, cilantro, cumin, and garlic powder; cook thoroughly 
  • Turn off heat and allow to cool for a few minutes; prepare the sauce during this time

Yogurt Sauce

  • Add yogurt, cilantro, lime juice, salt, and cumin to a clean food processor bowl and pulse until cilantro leaves have been fully blended

Preparing the Spring Rolls

  • To roll spring rolls, follow the directions on the package or allow this little cutie to teach you how it's done
  • In a heavy bottom skillet, heat frying oil to 300-325 degrees 
  • Fry 3-4 prepared rolls into the hot oil and brown on all sides, about 1-2 minutes

Notes

* Don't over process; you do not want a paste consistency. More of a mealy consistency is the goal.
