Egg Roll in a Bowl! This deconstructed egg roll makes a perfect quick-and-easy one pan dinner. (Gluten free, paleo & Whole30 friendly)

Served on its own, this will easily serve 4-5. Served as a component of the meal, it’ll stretch fo 5-6 servings. 



  • 1/2 Tbsp olive oil
  • 1 lb. ground chicken breast (can sub ground turkey, pork, or beef)
  • 1/2 onion, diced
  • 1 1/2 tsp minced fresh ginger
  • 2 cl0ves garlic, minced
  • 2 carrots, peeled and shredded (about 3/4c)
  • 1 (14oz) bag coleslaw mix*
  • 3 Tbsp low sodium gluten free tamari (or coconut aminos for paleo)**
  • 1 Tbsp rice vinegar (or cider vinegar for paleo)
  • 12 tsp toasted sesame oil
  • 2 green onions, sliced


  1. Heat olive oil in a large pan over medium heat.
  2. Add ground chicken breast to the pan and cook 5-7 minutes, or until completely cooked through. (There will likely be a bit of water at the bottom of the pan. Don’t drain it.)
  3. Next, add onion and cook an additional 4-5 minutes to soften slightly. It will begin to turn translucent.
  4. Add ginger and garlic and cook 1 minute more.
  5. Then, add grated carrot and 1/2 of the coleslaw mix. (Your pan will seem SUPER full)
  6. Drizzle with tamari and rice vinegar. Gently stir to coat. Cook 2-3 minutes or until cabbage starts to wilt a bit.
  7. Add remaining coleslaw mix and stir to coat. Cook 2-3 minutes until the cabbage is starting to soften.
  8. Stir in sesame oil and green onions and serve.


CAN’T FIND COLESLAW MIX? No problem! Use 5 cups shredded green cabbage, 1 c shredded purple cabbage, and 1/2 cup additional shredded carrot.

PALEO & WHOLE30 NOTES – This egg roll bowl can easily be paleo & Whole30 compliant by using a few simple swaps. First, use coconut aminos in place of the gluten free tamari. Second, use apple cider vinegar in place of the rice vinegar. Easy-peasy!
