Cheesy Mediterranean Egg Rolls
I have a Mediterranean stuffed chicken recipe that my family loves! It’s one of those things I want to make for the blog, but the times I have made it, I either forget to take pictures or the food doesn’t last long enough to take pictures! You would think I was feeding a pack of ravenous wolves! Just an FYI – Farm Rich launched a very special recipe contest on August 1st with the winner receiving a $10,000 prize! You can help pick the winner! Read through the post for more information!
The other day I needed a snack idea and I wondered if I could get the same flavor in an egg roll? Yes, these are the kinds of things I think about! I opted to leave out the chicken, although you could certainly add some if you want to. These Cheesy Mediterranean Eggs Rolls were just as much of a hit as the Mediterranean Stuffed Chicken Breasts that I make! I have to be honest, though, making the egg rolls seemed a bit easier than trying to stuff chicken breasts and going through the entire process of coating them and baking them! It was a bit easier with the help from Farm Rich by using their Mozzarella Sticks! I love that the mozzarella sticks will remind you of having a crumb-coated chicken breast without all of the work!
Things to pick up
You’ll need to head to the frozen section at your local Walmart and pick up Farm Rich Mozzarella Sticks. And don’t forget to stop in the fresh produce section and grab some fresh basil!
You’ll also need egg roll wrappers (in the produce section), kalamata olives (or black olives) and a jar of roasted red peppers to make this recipe. Oh, and don’t forget the oil for frying! That’s it! Seriously, easy!
Remember I mentioned the Farm Rich Back Your Snack contest page?! Be sure to check out the list of stores where you can find the upcoming demos and vote for on the semi- finalists on 9/19 and 9/20, and the finalists on 10/9 and 10/11.

There will also be 5 winners in the voters “sweepstakes.” The Sweepstakes Prize is a prize pack containing all of the following items: a tote bag, a meat thermometer, grilling tongs, an oven sheet, an oven mitt, $50 worth of Farm Rich product coupons and a $50 Walmart Gift Card. The ARV of each Sweepstakes Prize is $140. Total ARV of all Sweepstakes Prizes is Seven Hundred Dollars ($700.00).
Making the egg rolls
Just a quick side note, you don’t need to worry about thawing the Farm Rich Mozzarella Sticks before making the egg rolls – just go ahead and roll them up frozen! They cook up perfectly when you fry them in the egg rolls! One of these days, I will get that recipe for those Mediterranean Stuffed Chicken Breasts on the blog, but until then, enjoy this Cheesy Mediterranean Egg Rolls recipe that uses the some of the same “stuffing” ingredients! Enjoy!
