Crispy Baked Baja Chicken Rolls

Last week I bought some egg roll wrappers since they were on sale at the grocery store. I'm not a huge fan of Asian cuisine so egg rolls were out. I did want to make something using chicken. I love Baja chicken so I figured why not make Baja Chicken Rolls. I served them with a side of salsa dipping sauce and they were wonderful! They made the perfect light dinner. I can't wait to make them again soon!

Crispy Baked Baja Chicken Rolls
Makes 10 Rolls
Cal 162, Fat 5.6g, Carbs 15.6g, Fiber 2g, Protein 13.3g

10 egg roll wrappers
2 cups cooked chicken, chopped
1 tbsp lime juice
1 tsp chili powder
1 cup dry shredded coleslaw
1/2 cup ranch dressing (I used reduced fat)
1/2 cup chopped grape tomatoes
1/4 cup chopped pickled jalapeno's (optional)
1 cup shredded cheese (I used reduced fat Mexican 5 cheese blend)

For The Salsa Dipping Sauce
1/2 cup salsa
1/2 cup sour cream
1 tsp hot sauce

Whisk together and let chill for 30 minutes before serving.

For the Baja Chicken Rolls

Pre-Heat oven to 400. Set a wire rack inside a rimmed baking sheet and spray the rack with cooking spray.

In a medium bowl combine Chicken, Chili Powder, Lime Juice, Ranch Dressing, Cheese, Tomatoes and Coleslaw.  Mix Well. Divide chicken mixture evenly and place 2 tbsp in the middle of each egg roll wrapper.

To fold the roll: Bring the bottom right corner up and over the filling to cover it completely and make it snug. Fold each side over to form an envelope, then roll the wrap almost all the way to the top. Wet your finger with water and moisten the top corner, then fold it over the roll, pressing to seal. Place the roll on the prepared rack. Repeat with the remaining wrappers and filling.

Spray each roll with non stick cooking spray. Bake for 15-20 minutes or until golden and crispy. Flip once halfway through cooking. Serve with salsa dipping sauce. Enjoy!
