1- Dice up chicken, put in pan with olive oil, season with salt, pepper and cumin. Sauté for about 5 minutes or until chicken is cooked. Put aside on plate.

2- While your chicken is cooking dice up all your vegetables. Once chicken is out of pan, pour in sesame seed oil and all vegetables. Add in ginger. Sauté for about 20 minutes until peppers, carrots and cabbage are cooked and not super crunchy. Season with salt, pepper, soy sauce, cumin and garlic powder while you cook.


3- Once vegetables are almost cooked add back in your chicken and mix.


4- Prepare jasmine rice as instructed.

5- Serve deconstructed egg roll with rice or in my case make a burrito!

6- If making an egg roll burrito, fill your tortilla shell with rice and egg roll filling. Fold burrito. Put burrito in hot clean pan and sear on both sides until golden brown. Serve and enjoy!
