Awesome Easy Egg Rolls

- 1 package egg roll wrappers
- 1 large chicken breast
- 1 TBSP sesame seeds
- 3 Green Onions
- 1 red bell pepper
- 1 head napa cabbage
- 1 large carrot (peeled)
- 2 TBSP or more of ginger paste (or crushed fresh ginger)
- Fresh chopped basil
- Soy Sauce (to taste)
- Hot Sauce (to taste)
- Salt (to taste)
- Oil for frying and oil for sauteing

Warm about a tablespoon of oil in a skillet. Chop the chicken into thin strips about 1/4" wide and 1-3" long. Add the chicken to the skillet and coat with sesame seeds. Cook until done. Remove chicken from skillet and add to a large bowl.

Chop the green onions. Chop bell peppers in thin strips like the chicken. Using a peeler, make strips of carrot. Add a little more oil to the skillet and begin to saute the veggies. While the veggies saute, chop the cabbage into bite-size pieces. Remove the veggies from the skillet and add to the bowl with the chicken. Begin to saute the cabbage with a little soy sauce and hot sauce until tender and add it and the chopped basil to the bowl. Mix well.

Begin to warm your frying oil, about 1/4-1/2" deep in the pan. Use a taller pot to prevent oil splatters. Wrap the egg rolls with about 2 TBSP of filling and fry on each side until golden brown.
