I figured it was about time I share an actual egg roll recipe the way it’s meant to be.

I mean, I have infinity egg roll recipes in various flavors like Spicy Italian, Philly Cheesesteak, Reuben, Avocado, Birthday Cake, so I figured it was time to take it back to the original.

This Crispy Chicken Egg Rolls Recipe is seriously so delicious and amazingly easy to make!

The base starts with ground chicken and lots of shredded cabbage. I used a bag of coleslaw mix which includes shredded cabbage and shredded carrots. It’s a time saver to use the pre shredded stuff, but if you can’t find the pre shredded mix, you can finely chop your own.

You don’t want the filling to be overly wet when filling your egg roll wrappers, so don’t be surprised if your filling is more on the dry side.

The seasonings that going in the filling are ultra flavorful and really make the tastes pop!

One seasoning you don’t want to skip is the Chinese Five Spice. The combination of flavors in the Chinese Five Spice bring a sweet and nutty flavor to the filling that you will truly love.

Heck, I had a hard time keeping my hands off of that filling before it made it into the wrappers!

Once all of your egg rolls are wrapped up nice and tight give them a dunk in your deep fryer or a heavy bottomed pot that’s filled with about an inch or two of oil.

To achieve that crispy wrapper it’s best to deep fry these rather than bake them.

Try switching out the ground chicken with ground pork to make these pork egg rolls.

You could even leave out the meat, add extra cabbage and some sliced mushrooms and make these a veggie egg roll!

The possibilities are endless with egg rolls, I think that’s why I love them so much!

    How well do these hold up for freezing? Has anyone tried? Did you freeze, then fry after defrosting? I know I could halve the recipe, but as long as I;m making the effort I’d like to have a batch available for later!

    1. What I would do is make the whole batch and then fry them all. Then let any leftovers cool. Wrap them in plastic wrap and foil and place in the freezer. Then when you’re ready to eat them again you can heat them up in a toaster oven or regular oven at 375 degrees F until heated through!

    Hi, My Husband made the filling last night. He added 8oz of fresh mushrooms, that is the only change made. We decided to eat without the wrappers. I’m sorry to say, it was so overly salty that it was not edible. It was truly sickening, and went into the trash. I understand that maybe, the wrappers & deep frying could have change it a bit. But looking at the amount of food the recipe makes 2 1/2 tsp of salt is just WAY overboard.

    1. Hey Holly! I’m so sorry! I think there must have been an accidental typo when I was publishing the recipe. It should have read 1/2 tsp, not 2 1/2 tsp of salt. I agree that 2 1/2 tsp of salt would be WAY too much. Again, so sorry for the mix up! I’ve updated the recipe.

      I know you can get it at Walmart. You can also check your local store. I think it is on the Asian Food aisle.
