Are egg roll wrappers the same as spring roll wrappers? I love Asian food and this sounds good but am unfamiliar with the wrappers.

To make this a good recipe, replace the flour rolls with a cabbage leaf wrap.
You need to cook the whole cabbage and then peel off a leaf after leaf.
Then you do not need to bake it.

Roll wrappers are made from flour. Flour is made from wheat. Wheat is grain.
See this 2003 article by Dr. Mercola (mercola.com) about grains. Here is a short excerpt:
"The Grain-Insulin Connection

What most conventional physicians fail to appreciate is that there are many less-than-obvious reactions to gluten-containing grains, like wheat, that can cause health problems (gluten is a protein in wheat, barley, rye, oats and spelt). Medicine has a term for this called sub-clinical gluten intolerance, I call it a clue.

Some of you are addicted to breads, bagels, pizza, pasta, waffles and pancakes and would rather die than give them up. Ironically, many people who don't eliminate these foods end up doing just that; dying from insulin-related complications caused, in large part, from eating grain-related products."

I stopped making/eating fried things. But baking! What a great method. These are back on the menu with a few changes: rice noodles (soaked, spaghetti sized); chilli sauce - Asian type garlic chili paste; honey - Agave syrup (little to no glucose rise)

Sounds very interesting,I have made egg rolls before and they are very good, but fried. So I like the idea of baking them. I will try this very soon

yep the chicken is cut into strips. and the extra oil onto the cooked noodles to keep them from sticking together. all the top ingredients except spring roll wraps, are to go into the pan and stirfried.

sorry guys. it was a receipe from my diabetic magazine. hmmmm maybe i can edit it and add more instructions.

this recipe, though it sounds good, is incomplete as it does not tell you to slice the chicken into strips nor does it tell you to add the egg noodles to the mixture… do they go in it????

Sounds lovely. I've been making Spring Rolls for years but deep frying them as I was taught to do, and I'd never thought of adding egg noodles as part of the filler. Now I'll try baking them instead.

the egg noodles go in with the other stuff and then wrapped up in the spring roll sheet. i use bean vermicelli noodles as a substitute at times.
