Ingredients:

- 2 skinned chicken breast fillets, each about 175-200g
- 1 tsp mild curry powder
- Donegal Rapeseed Oil, for cooking
- Knob of butter
- 2 spring onions, finely chopped
- 1/2 head Savoy cabbage - the leaves finely shredded (about 300g)
- 150g shitake mushrooms, trimmed and sliced
- 3 tbsp sweet chilli sauce
- 3 tbsp chilli jam
- 1 tbsp chopped coriander
- 4 x 30cm spring roll wrappers, thawed if frozen
- 1 egg
- 1 tbsp milk
- Donegal Rapeseed Oil, for deep frying

For the Mango Salsa:
- 1 ripe mango, peeled and finely diced, stone removed
- 1 tbsp Donegal Rapeseed Oil
- 1 small roasted red pepper, finely diced
- 2 tbsp sweet chilli sauce
- 1 tbsp chopped coriander
- 1 tbsp chopped basil
- Salt and freshly ground black pepper

Instructions

1: Preheat the oven to 180 degrees celsius/Gas 4. Place the chicken breasts in a baking dish and season generously, then sprinkle the curry powder over evenly. Drizzle over a little Donegal Rapeseed Oil and add a tablespoon of water into the tin – this stops them from drying out. Bake for 15-20 minutes until cooked through and tender. Leave to cool and then dice into small cubes, about 1cm.

2: To make the mango salsa, place the mango in a bowl and stir in the Donegal Rapeseed Oil, roasted red pepper, sweet chilli sauce, coriander and basil. Season to taste. Cover with clingfilm and set aside at room temperature until needed.

3: Heat the butter in a frying pan with a dash of Donegal Rapeseed Oil. Add the spring onions and cabbage. Toss until almost tender and then add the shitake mushrooms. Toss again for 2-3 minutes until the mushrooms begin to wilt. Add the sweet chilli sauce, chilli jam and coriander and toss until evenly combined. Season to taste.

4: Lay out one spring roll wrapper on a clean work surface. Beat the egg and milk in a bowl until well combined. With an imaginary diagonal line across the centre in mind, brush the egg wash just one one side of the wrappers and then spoon on the chicken mixture into the centre along that line. Fold the bottom corner over the mixture, then turn in the two outside corners and roll up to meet the egg corner to stick. It is important not to let the wrappers dry out so keep the extra wrappers covered with a damp tea towel. Be careful not to overfull the spring rolls or they can burst during cooking.

5: Heat the Donegal Rapeseed Oil in a deep-fat fryer or half fill a deep-sided pan to 180 degrees celsius, Deep-fry in batches of three for about 4-5 minutes until the spring rolls are golden brown, turning halfway through. Drain on kitchen paper.

6: To serve, slice each spring roll into three and arrange in the centre of a plate. Spoon on some chilli jam, a drizzle of balsamic and port syrup and serve with salsa.
