  • Ingredients
  • step-by-step directions
Jerk Chicken Egg Rolls
  • 10-12 store-bought egg roll wrappers
  • 12 ounces chicken thighs (boneless)
  • 1 package Caribbean-style rice
  • jerk seasoning (to taste)
  • vegetable oil (for frying)
  • Preheat the grill to medium-high heat. Line a plate with paper towels.
  • Fill a large Dutch oven with 2-3 inches of vegetable oil and heat to 350ºF.
  • Prepare rice according to package instructions and allow to cool.
  • Season chicken thighs with jerk seasoning and place on the grill and cook for 3 to 4 minutes on each side or until cooked through. Remove from the grill and allow to cool. When cool enough to handle, mince the chicken.
  • In a large bowl, stir together the minced chicken and rice.
  • Place about 2 tablespoons of the chicken and rice mixture in the center of each egg roll wrapper. Fold in two sides of the wrapper and roll the wrapper up, like a jelly roll. Using your fingertip, seal the edge with water.
  • Fry egg rolls in preheated oil until golden brown, about 2 minutes each side. Remove to a paper towel-lined plate. Serve warm.
  • Tip: Perfect idea to use leftover rice and chicken!
