The flavor of these was really good - but the texture of the wonton wrappers did not work for us, too tough and chewy and I was expecting something a little crisper like an egg roll.

Everyone loved the rolls and we ate so many we had to delay dinner. Used leftover turkey instead of chicken. Quickly blanched some carrots and cabbage instead of using mushrooms.

I used the first 5 ingredients, but left out the mushrooms and croutons. I agree that the wonton wrappers were a bit difficult to fold, but that may have been user-error as well, since it was the first time I'd ever used them.That said, these were FANTASTIC! The ONLY downside was that I sat and ate SO MANY! lol. Definitely try!

This recipe is really great. I love it and so does my husband. What I love is that you can really make it your own. I do however think the lemon pepper is a must. The ONLY downside is that they take forever to wrap, but worth it.

Haven't made this yet but sounds really good. How long do you cook them if you want them as soon as you make them. Approx.? 10 - 15 minutes

Use egg rolls right off the bat with these - less mess, and you can double the recipe for large crowds.
