Crispy Fried Chicken Spring Rolls

"This recipe was featured on the Rhodes Around China TV series on the Hong Kong leg of the journey. Gary was taught to make these by a couple of local executive chefs. They are incredibly easy to put together, and very flavourful. I sometimes add bean sprouts and peas and corn and leave the meat out to make them vegetarian. Great as a snack, light meal or as part of a buffet. My family, especially the children, love them."

Ready In:
30 spring rolls-approx




  • Heat the peanut oil in a wok. When hot, stir fry the carrot for 1 minute. Add the cabbage, mushroom, and chicken and fry for another minute, stirring all of the time.
  • Season with a little pepper; add the sugar, both soy sauces and the sesame oil.
  • Combine 2 tsp of the cornflour with about 3 tbsp of water and stir into the filling while still on the heat. Any juices will soon thicken. Remove from heat and leave to cool.
  • Combine remaining cornflour with enough water to make a thin paste. Lay out a spring roll wrapper and put 1 tbsp of filling across one end. brush the edges of the wrapper with cornflour liquid to help it stick.
  • Fold the two opposite edges of the wrapper over part of the filling and roll into a tight cylinder. Pinch the edges together to form a good seal.
  • Repeat with remaining wrappers and filling.
  • Heat the vegetable oil in a deep fryer, and cook rolls in batches until golden and crisp.

  1. Made these for dinner tonight, along with some fried rice. Though I am not the person that can roll these as good as I wish, they still turned out good. Made recipe as posted, though I did buy some store bought sweet and sour sauce. The rolls were nicely filled, and I did end up with about 30 rolls. A nice light dinner . Made for Zaar Stars.
  2. I love spring rolls or egg rolls of any kind! We used to make them for fund raisers for my daughter's softball and soccer teams. It's been a while, but I remembered how to roll them! Thanks for sharing!
  3. Very tasty... We dipped them in duck sauce.. Really good!
  4. I'm behind in my reviews but didn't want to forget this one! These rolls were so tasty I ate way too many, but it was worth it. They were really delicious!
  5. In a couple of words, TRY THEM! Good dipped in Duck Sauce, and we loved the chicken for a change!


  1. What is the measurement for 200 g cooked chicken and 100 g mushrooms?
  2. These rolls are fantastic! I followed Nimz suggestions of making carrot strips, using low sodium soy sauce, and using egg roll wrappers instead of the spring rolls, for ease of assembling. I also sealed with the egg wash, as it works so well. I served with Recipe #270395. and let me tell you, they were EGGSULENT! Don
  3. These are just excellent Egg Rolls. Very easy to put together. I did make just a few changes, such as slicing the carrots into thin strips instead of shredding them and chopped up my mushrooms instead of slicing them. I didn't have dark soy sauce so used 3 tablespoons of low sodium, which worked well for us. I used egg roll wraps instead of the spring rolls, just easier for me to work with and I also sealed the wraps with an egg wash. These were just excellent and I know I'll be making them again. Served this with my recipe #216107
