Chicken and Banana Egg Roll Appetizer

No recipe image available.The tropics meet the orient in this unusual, but quite tasty, deep-fried chicken and banana egg roll appetizer.

Recipe Ingredients:

1 boneless, skinless chicken breast half
2 teaspoons sesame oil
2 medium bananas
2 large eggs
2 tablespoons milk
1/2 cup all-purpose flour
4 egg roll wrappers
3 cups vegetable oil

Cooking Directions:

  1. Halve boneless chicken breast; lay flat and slice through horizontally. Use a rolling pin to roll the breast meat into very thin slices. Brush with sesame oil.
  2. Peel and cut bananas in half to yield two round sections about the length of the chicken breasts.
  3. Beat eggs with milk. Wrap a thin piece of chicken around a section of banana, dredge in flour, then dip into the egg mixture. Roll the wrapped chicken/banana pieces in egg roll wrappers, tucking in while rolling. Seal the end of the wrapper with a flour paste.
  4. Heat oil in a wok or deep fryer, cook the egg rolls until light brown; drain. Cool slightly, then slice into 1-inch sections.
