Fried Eggrolls Recipe

Did you know the Chinese New Year is coming up?

If you didn’t, I thought I’d let you know because it’s a great holiday! We celebrate it every year as a family ever since I returned home from living in China back in over 10 years ago. I lived there as a Volunteer English teacher and cherished my time there. Fortunately, here in Arizona there are still several celebrations and in downtown Phoenix they have a Chinese Cultural Center that we take the kids to each year. It is a blast!

To celebrate I will be sharing some yummy asian dishes with you over the next few weeks. This next one is a family favorite that we make all the time. What’s best about this Fried Eggrolls Recipe is that it requires few igredients, is easy and makes eggrolls that can be eaten by the dozen!! :D

Delicious Fried Egg Rolls recipe - filled with shredded chicken and cole slaw!

    Your egg rolls look and sound delicious. We have hosted exchange students from all over the world, we particularly love our Asian students. They are so VERY sweet and bring a rich culture with them. We have hosted from, Hong Kong, Taiwan, China, and Vietnam. We have have yet to host from Japan and that is one Country I have always wanted to host from : ) I traveled to the Philippines and worked in an Orphanage out there. So I understand the memories made and the desire to keep them alive. Thank you for sharing this fabulous recipe with us.

    THANK YOU!! I am going to make these this weekend! :o)

    What sauce do you suggest? Do you have a recipe for that?

      We have used all sorts of sauces but we make these a lot with Sweet and Sour Pork or Chicken, and I LOVE keeping some of the Sweet and Sour Sauce on reserve to use as dip for the egg rolls. :)

    Yay, i’m so happy to see Chinese New Year celebratory recipes,and this one looks great! Do you deep fry these, or do half one side and half the other in shallow oil?

  10. 13

    Yum, can you send those to my house via overnight mail? Just kidding… kind of.
    Using the cole slaw mix is such a good idea. I’m all for more efficient kitchen time!

    Can you tell me where you got the wonton wrappers from?

    • 16

      We got ours at our local Wal-Mart. At our store they are located in the Produce section near the salads and cole slaw. :)

    How do you fry them – deep fry or in a pan with just a little oil?

    I have been making these for years, they are a HUGE hit. I do, however, add a bit of sugar and soy sauce to the coleslaw mix as it cooks. I also add a bag of shredded carrots to the coleslaw mix. We have also used gd beef instead of chicken.
