I can't wait to try these! I love chicken egg rolls and am planning on making these for New Year's Eve.
- 4 cups purchased coleslaw mix
- 8 ounces deli roasted chicken breast, shredded
- 1⁄2 cup green onion, sliced
- 3 tablespoons reduced sodium soy sauce
- 3⁄4 teaspoon ground ginger
- 1⁄2 teaspoon garlic powder
- 1 (16 ounce) packagerefrigerated egg roll wraps
- cooking oil (for frying)
- bottled sweet and sour sauce
- Preheat oven to 300°F
- In large bowl, toss together coleslaw mix, chicken, onion, soy sauce, ginger and garlic powder.
- Spoon about 1/3 cup of the chicken mixture across and just below center of each egg roll wrapper.
- Fold bottom corner over filling, tucking it under on other side.
- Fold side corners over filling, forming an envelope shape.
- Roll egg roll toward remaining corner.
- Moisten top corner with water; press firmly to seal.
- Repeat with remaining chicken mixture and egg roll wrappers.
- In heavy saucepan or deep-fat fryer, heat about 2 inches of oil to 365°F
- Fry egg rolls, 2 or 3 at a time, 2 to 3 minutes or until brown, turning often.
- Drain on paper towels.
- Keep warm in oven while frying remaining egg rolls.
- Serve immediately with sweet and sour sauce.
Made these for a large finger food NY's spread. I omitted the chicken since I had several dishes with meat. Theses were just as delicious with only vegetables. Nice dish to make ahead and then bake on serving day too. Thanks!
I actually made these for New Years, and they were gone within hours. The only thing I would change in the recipe is the oil temperature and the cooking time...it's way easier to cook them properly and all the way through if you lower the oil temp and fry them slowly. It takes about ten minutes, but they come out crunchy and golden. Watch out, though, that filling is like lava when it comes out. :)
I did make this for a New Years party. People raved about them. I'm now "required" to make them for all upcoming parties.
