Chicken & Asparagus Rolls


Time: 20 minutes
Effort: Easy
Serves 4


Ingredients
2 chicken breasts, sliced lengthwise in half to make 4 strips
4 asparagus spears, cut crosswise in half and lightly steamed
1/2 zucchini cut into 4 lengthwise strips, lightly steamed
Salt & pepper to taste
Sesame seeds
1/2 cup canola oil for frying
Toothpicks

Take a large piece of parchment paper and lay 2 strips of chicken over it, then fold over the paper to cover it. Pound them until they are almost paper thin, set aside and repeat with the remaining 2 strips. Cut and steam the asparagus for approximately 5 minutes - do not overcook ! Lay each chicken strip flat on a large board and place 2 pieces each of asparagus and zucchini, then sprinkle with salt and pepper. Roll them up and secure with a toothpick. Repeat with the rest of the chicken, asparagus etc. In a large skillet, heat up the oil until quite hot. Fry the chicken rolls a few at a time until golden and the chicken is nice and firm. Drain on paper towels and sprinkle sesame seeds over the top. (Alternatives: Replace chicken with fish. Replace asparagus & zucchini with carrots or snow peas, or even bean sprouts...be creative !)
