Ingredients

Quantity Ingredient
4 chicken fillets, (skinless, boneless half‑breasts)
1 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon white pepper
1/4 teaspoon five-spice powder
1 garlic clove, crushed
4 slices ham
75g plain flour
1 egg, lightly beaten
2 tablespoons milk
4 spring roll wrappers
oil, for deep-frying

Method

  1. Separate strip of fillet which runs lengthways along each half-breast. Pound breast and fillet pieces separately until very thin, being careful not to tear meat. Lay a fillet piece on top of each breast and pound lightly. Spread chicken pieces with combined mixture of salt, pepper, five-spice powder and garlic.
  2. Separately roll each slice of ham and place on top of each chicken piece. Roll up firmly, folding ends in securely. Dip chicken rolls in flour, then in egg beaten with milk. Place chicken roll diagonally across spring roll wrapper, fold in ends and roll up securely. Seal with a little of the egg mixture.
  3. Deep-fry rolls in hot oil for 3–5 minutes until golden brown and cooked through. Do not have the oil too hot or the rolls will brown too much before they are cooked through. Drain on crumpled paper towels. Serve cut into diagonal slices. If serving as a first course, serve accompanied by sweet and sour sauce.
