Panda Express Egg Rolls Made Skinny Recipe
I must admit, I love the chicken egg rolls at Panda Express. I don’t eat them very often because they are deep fried. Happily, i’ve created a skinny recipe I can enjoy guilt-free and you can too! To make them skinny, I’m using lean ground turkey breast, loading the rolls with crunchy veggies and baking–not frying. The skinny for each roll is 104 calories, just 1 gram of fat and 3 Weight Watchers POINTS PLUS.
