Crispy Chicken and Vegetable Spring Roll Recipe

Who doesn’t love a spring roll. Stuffed with vegetables and chicken then shallow-fried till crispy and delicious. For a healthier version, bake in the oven for 20 minutes (180 C) or until crispy. You can also experiment with filo pastry. Freeze leftovers and place back in the oven until heated through.
