Cutting back on Carbs? Zucchinis, sliced and halved, boil in salted water (Or broth) for 30 seconds to 1 minute… In place of Rice. Cheese sauce amount may need to be altered, less.

Add back into crock. Mix well. Prepare rice. I microwave in microwave safe bowl with microwave safe lid. I add water to rice (As box suggests). I add the crushed broth, cilantro, and lime. Stir. I cook according to box. But, halfway through I stir, then finish cooking. When done I stir again, taste test, make sure it has nice lime flavor (Offset adobo). If not, add more. Stir, set aside covered a few minutes.
Fill eggrolls with chicken mixture and rice mixture. Top with minced jalapenoes. Wet corners, wrap up. Spray skillet with butter cooking spray. Brown all sides. When done, I always sprinkle lightly with garlic powder. Serve with sour cream.
