  • 1 chicken breast skinless and boneless
  • 1 clove

  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1/2 small cabbage shredded
  • 1/2 lb long beans cut into small pieces
  • 2 spring onions sliced
  • 1 medium onion diced finely
  • 3 small potatoes diced
  • 1 cup bean sprouts
  • 3 Tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 package Egg roll Sheets
  • 1 oil for frying
  • 1 maggi cube
  • 2 Tablespoons soy sauce light


  • Put the chicken in a saucepan and cover with water add the clove, bay leaf and black pepper.
  • Cook on medium high until the chicken is cooked through about 8-10 minutes
  • Remove chicken and using two forks shred the chicken and set aside
  • Put 3 tablespoons of olive oil to heat medium in a frying pan, fry the onion and garlic until fragrant.
  • Add in the cooked shredded chicken
  • Add in the Maggi cube and the diced potato cook stirring occasionally for about 8 minutes
  • Add in pepper to taste as well as the light soy sauce. Stir to combine
  • Add in the long beans and shredded cabbage mix to combine and cook 3 more minutes
  • Add in the spring onions and bean sprouts mix together and cook 1 more minute
  • Remove from heat and set aside until cool enough to handle
  • Add a heaping tablespoon into the middle of the egg roll paper. Make it like and envelope and then roll up as tightly as possible. Use your finger in some water to seal the edges
  • Repeat until all the filling is used up.
  • Put plenty of oil in your wok or deep fryer and fry until golden brown. Note that you can freeze any spring rolls you won't eat right away. They test best while hot just after frying.
  • Serve with a tomato chutney or sweet chili sauce.
