Julie's Jalapeno Cream Cheese and Sausage Egg Rolls

These tasty little egg rolls are FABULOUS for an entree or an appetizer...
we like to eat them any ol' time. They are kid and ADULT friendly....EVERYONE seems
 to adore their "simpleness" as well as their great taste!

Julie's Jalapeno Cream Cheese and Sausage Egg Rolls
1 lb. ground sausage (mild, medium or hot), cooked and drained
8 oz. cream cheese, softened
1/2 c. cheddar cheese, grated
1/2 c. freshly grated parmesan cheese
1 small can diced green chilies, drained
24 egg roll wraps
Oil for frying

Soften cream cheese. Place in a mixing bowl with sausage and other cheeses. Mix until blended. Add chilies, stir until combined. Place a spoonful in the center of egg roll wrap and roll according to egg roll wrap package directions. Repeat until all filling is gone or you run out of egg roll wraps. Deep fry in HOT oil (375 degrees)...just until browned. Enjoy!

Coconut Apricot Chicken

This chicken is scrumptious, to say the least. The coconut and apricot really compliment each other, giving the chicken a very sweet tropical taste. 
It takes very little time to prepare and is something that can be prepared ahead
and set aside to cook later. 

Coconut Apricot Chicken: 
8 chicken breast
3 c. sweetened coconut flakes
1 1/2 c. flour
1 1/2 t. garlic powder
1 1/2 t. salt
3/4 t. pepper
3 eggs
1 1/2 c. buttermilk
1 1/2 c. butter
1 1/2-2 c. apricot/pineapple jam

Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Spray a baking sheet with cooking spray. Place eggs and buttermilk in a bowl and whisk until well blended. Combine flour, coconut and spices in a separate mixing bowl. Dip chicken into egg mixture and then into coconut mixture, place coated chicken onto prepared baking sheet. Repeat until all chicken is coated. Melt butter and drizzle over prepared chicken. Bake for 40-45 minutes or until chicken is cooked through. Place jam in a microwave dish, cook at 30 second intervals until its melted and warm. When serving, top chicken with sauce.  Serve with rice.
