Baked Chicken and Cabbage Egg Rolls
Warning: This is no weeknight dinner (unless you have way more time than we do on a typical Tuesday night). However, a little investment on the weekend, and you have a delicious, healthy appetizer or side dish ready to go for the weekdays. Like all smart and convenient foods, these are freezer friendly. We suggest making a double batch and pulling out a couple whenever you need them!
Ordering takeout is so tempting when you are short on time, but can be a dangerous habit to develop. While it IS possible to eat well when you order out, it can be tough! Calories and cost add up in no time, and you have less control over how your food is made when you are ordering out. Trust us–your waistline and your wallet will thank you for investing just a little more time in these delicious egg rolls on the weekend.
Although delicious, egg rolls do not make a meal all on their own. Enjoy them with a side salad and some edamame to fill you up right. Or, just serve them as the appetizer before the main event. Add this to your list of freezer-friendly meals and keep them on hand for when you are in a pinch!
