Asian chicken roll-ups
These are great, I'm glad I doubled the recipe and made four logs!! I didn't have any plum jam for the sauce and used red currant jelly, all I can say is Wow, it really went well with the chicken roll!!
For the rolls....
1/3 cup chopped scallions
6 Tbsp chopped fresh cilantro, divided
1/2 tsp ground ginger
1 lb. boneless, skinless chicken breast, cubed
2 Tbsp soy sauce
1 tsp chili garlic sauce
1 egg separated
1/2 cup canned water chestnuts, chopped
1 sheet puff pastry
1 tsp each white and black sesame streets
For the sauce......
1/2 cup plum jam
2 Tbsp lime juice
2 Tbsp water
1 Tbsp ketchup
1/4 tsp salt and red pepper flakes
Pre-heat oven to 400 degrees; line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
Mince scallions,3Tbsp cilantro and ginger in a food processor. Add chicken, soy sauce,chili garlic sauce and egg white. Pulse until coarsely chopped. Transfer to a bowl and fold in chopped water chestnuts.
Roll pastry on a floured surface to a 14" square, then halve lengthwise. Divide chicken mixture between portions of dough along the bottom edge. Roll to enclose filling and transfer to prepared baking sheet, seam side down. Beat egg yolk with 1 Tbsp water and brush onto the logs and sprinkle with black and white sesame seeds. Bake until golden, 20-25 minutes, let cool slightly then slice into 1" pieces.
Simmer all sauce ingredients in a sauce pan over medium heat for 5 minutes. Let cool and stir in remaining cilantro.
Get them rolled, this is why I dont bake, I make a mess!
ready for the oven
Golden brown, finis! ( I forgot the parchment paper)
Serve with the sauce, Yummo!
Oh man! That's great looking. I'm printing it now. ;)
You will enjoy it! The hardest part was cleaning up the mess I made. I always seem to over fill the food processor and have spills, oh yeah, flour everywhere! :D
They do look pretty freaking good.
Your "plating" has come a long way. :D
I tried to make these but my grocery store clerk looked at me really funny when I asked for "white and black sesame streets." :p
