Egg roll and wanton wrappers are unbelievably versatile. From buffalo chicken rolls, to petite lasagnas to pastry puffs, the list goes on and on! I don’t know about you, but I always seem to draw a blank when it comes to new and different appetizers, so this week, I’ve discovered an amazing recipe for Chicken Parmesan Wraps on Can You Stay For Dinner-who doesn’t like chicken parmesan? Best part about this recipe, it’s a total crowd pleaser, and most importantly, it’s so simple!
Chicken Parmesan Wraps
8 oz raw chicken breast
1 cup marinara sauce, plus more for serving
6 egg roll wrappers (each 7 inches squared)
1 cup baby spinach leaves
1/2 cup mozzarella cheese
1/4 cup Parmesan cheese
Place the chicken breast in a small pot and fill with enough water just to cover. Bring to a boil on your stove top, reduce the heat slightly, then simmer for about 12 minutes, or until cooked through. Drain and let cool before shredding with two forks, pulling against the grain of the meat. Mix the meat with the marinara sauce in a small bowl.
Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F. Lay the egg roll wrappers on a clean work surface. Layer each with a few leaves of spinach, then chicken, followed by mozzarella and Parmesan.
Lightly brush two adjacent sides of the wrapper with water and fold the upper left corner downward, covering the filling, and press to seal on the bottom right corner. Press to seal each of the sides. Repeat with remaining wraps.
Place all 6 filled wraps on a greased wire rack set over a cookie sheet, coat each in cooking spray or a light brushing of olive oil, and bake for about 12 minutes, or until the edges begin to turn a golden brown.
Serve with warmed marinara sauce for dipping.
