Deconstructed Egg Roll (Paleo)

Cravings for Chinese take-out can easily be satisfied with my 'paleo-fied' interpretation of the beloved egg roll by simply removing the gluten! In other words, all of the contents of the egg roll are taken out of the wrapper, and served in a bowl, giving you instead, every bite of the delicious, aromatic flavors of your favorite food!

Crisp cabbage, hearty mushrooms, and chicken all cooked in a garlicky, gingery sauce will fulfill every take-out craving you have. Plus, it can be done in less than 20 minutes and with one pan, and voila, you have yourself a simple mid-week, paleo-friendly dinner!
