Chicken Recipes:

With 14 people to feed and company over all the time, chicken is our all time easiest food to cook. I saw these great recipes at Hungry Girl and thought I would share them. Have any other EASY recipes?

Cheesy Chicken Egg Rolls

1/2 tbsp. light whipped butter or light buttery spread (like Brummel & Brown)
1 sweet onion, thinly sliced
1/4 tsp. salt
2 cups spinach leaves
1/2 tbsp. chopped garlic
4 oz. cooked skinless lean chicken breast, chopped
2 wedges The Laughing Cow Light Creamy Swiss cheese
6 large square egg roll wrappers (stocked with the refrigerated Asian items in the supermarket)

Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Prepare a large baking sheet by spraying it lightly with nonstick spray; set aside.

Place butter in a skillet and bring to medium-high heat on the stove. Once butter has coated the bottom of the skillet, add onion and salt. Stirring often, sauté until softened and slightly browned, about 6 minutes.

Reduce heat to medium low. Stirring occasionally, continue to cook onion until browned and caramelized, about 15 minutes. Transfer to a large bowl and set aside.

Return skillet to medium-high heat on the stove. Add spinach and garlic and cook until the spinach has wilted, 1 - 2 minutes. Transfer mixture to the large bowl.

Add chicken and cheese to the bowl, breaking the cheese wedges into pieces as you add them. Mix thoroughly and set aside.

Place two egg roll wrappers on a clean, dry surface. Evenly distribute 1/6th of the mixture (about 1/3 cup) in a horizontal row a little below the center of each wrapper. Moisten all four edges of each wrapper by dabbing your fingers in water and going over the edges smoothly.

Fold in the sides of each wrapper about an inch toward the middle, over the filling to prevent it from escaping. Roll the bottom of each wrapper up around the mixture; continue rolling until you reach the top. Seal the outside edge with another dab of water. Carefully transfer egg rolls to the baking sheet.

Repeat with remaining wrappers and filling, making sure you have a clean, dry surface each time. Spray the tops of the egg rolls with nonstick spray.

Bake in the oven until golden brown, about 25 minutes.

Allow to cool slightly. Slice into halves, if you like, and dig in!

Ooh, those sound promising. I think I will use olive oil and real and cheese, though. Fake butter and cheeses are usually too chemically and more expensive than real food.

Sam, have you seen her 2-ingredient cake recipes?

My sister made one with devil's food cake mix and greek yogurt, and said it was great.
