3. Combine cornstarch, water, soy sauce, 1 tsp oil, brown sugar and cayenne n a small bowl; stir into chicken mixture. Bring to a boil over high heat and stir, cooking until sauce is thickened, about 2 mins; remove from heat.

4. Spoon 1/4 cup chicken mixture on the bottom third of one egg roll wrapper. fold sides down center and roll tightly.
