Crisp Orange-Chicken Spring Rolls

Posted By GKC On February 6, 2011 @ 1:58 am In Recipes of the Week,Weekly Recipes | 1 Comment

Makes 12 spring rolls

Original recipe is from Martha Stewart, adapted by GKC
2 jalapeno peppers, minced (center and seeds removed if you do not like it spicy)
6 cloves garlic, minced
4 teaspoons minced fresh ginger
2 tablespoon white cooking wine
6 tablespoons orange juice
2 tablespoon low-sodium soy sauce
1/2 pound skinless chicken breast, sliced into thin strips
1 tablespoon canola oil
1 large apple, peeled, cored, and cut into thin strips
4 green onions, green part only, cut into short, thin slivers
1 small red bell pepper, seeded and cut into thin strips
1 tablespoon seasoned rice vinegar
1-1/2 teaspoons sesame oil
12 8-inch round dried rice-paper wrappers
1 head Boston or Bibb lettuce, leaves separated and washed

For Sweet and Sour Chili Sauce:
Combine jalapeno pepper, garlic, ginger, wine, orange juice, and soy sauce in a medium bowl. Set aside. Take 2 tablespoons of sauce and toss with the chicken. Reserve the rest of sauce for dipping. Cover and marinate the chicken for 15 minutes. Drain excess liquid.

For Spring Rolls:
In a small pan, heat canola oil and sauté chicken until light brown outside and no longer pink inside, about 2 minutes. Combine apple, green onions, bell pepper, rice vinegar, and sesame oil in a medium bowl; toss to coat. Mix in cooked chicken.

Fill a medium bowl with warm water. Dip one of the wrappers in the water for 15 seconds, or until softened. Carefully transfer it to a dry work surface.

Arrange 2 to 3 tablespoons of the filling in an even horizontal mound just below the center of the wrapper. Roll up the rice paper to form a tight cylinder, folding in the sides about halfway. Assemble the remaining spring rolls the same way.

Coat the large baking sheet with cooking oil. Arrange spring rolls in a single layer, leaving a little space between them. Brush rolls with oil. Cook the rolls until lightly browned and crisp, 8 to 10 minutes, checking frequently to avoid burning. Use a spatula to turn the rolls over and continue to broil another 8 to 10 minutes. Serve each roll wrapped in lettuce leaf, with Sweet and Sour Chili Sauce.
