Smoked Chicken Rangoons


With a Side of Spice!


I decided yesterday I wanted to smoke a chicken, I mean smoke 2 chickens. Over the next couple of days I am going on a journey to create some of my favorite recipes utilizing smoked chicken.



This recipe is fast, quick and simple after smoking the chicken or you could use roasted chicken if you prefer. In a food processor, mix cream cheese, 1 cup of shredded smoke chicken and chili paste. Mix well, toss in some green onions, a pinch of pepper and there you go.


It's important to use spring roll wrappers if you want to achieve a lasting crunch. Fill the wrappers with mixture and use a flour-water mixture to seal these babies tight. 


The Asian Spicy Dipping Sauce is a family favorite. I mix Sriracha, sambal, chili sauce and soy sauce for a quick dipping sauce.


Experience the crunch, they are smokey, crunchy, spicy, then a hint of sweetness from the dipping sauce. Talking about a party for your taste buds.


Grab one, or two of these spicy bundles but beware, I highly suggest you make extra dipping sauce because these packets of joy require one to double dip!

I must confess I love great food. I decided to create The Creole Contessa blog after cooking and eating a great meal with my family Big Goo the hubby of almost twenty years and my lil’ Contessa Summer aka “Baby Girl." I told Big Goo and Baby Girl, it is just not fair to not share these great recipes with the world; and the Creole Contessa blog was born.
