Baked Chicken Egg Rolls: Un-Chained Recipe Contest

Introduction

One of my biggest fast-food temptations are greasy fried egg rolls from places like Panda Express. I made over this healthy version using lean chicken and fresh vegetables. Baking the egg rolls instead of frying them saves even more calories and these don't disappoint! They're flavor packed and I can make them often without feeling guilty. I serve them at parties, or for dinner with a side of brown rice.

Ingredients

    3 C bagged coleslaw mix, divided
    1/4 C sliced water chestnuts (about 10 slices)
    1/4 C green onions
    2 tea canola oil
    1 T minced ginger
    4 cloves garlic, minced
    1/4 C grated onion
    1lb ground chicken (boneless, skinless chicken breast, ground)
    1/4 t kosher salt
    2 tea low sodium soy sauce

    1 package egg roll wrappers
    Non-Stick Cooking Spray

Directions

Preheat oven to 425 Degrees. Spray a baking sheet with non-stick cooking spray. Set aside.

In a food processor, combine 1 C of the bagged coleslaw, water chestnuts, and green onions. Pulse about 12 times or until ground into small pieces. Set aside.

Mince garlic cloves and ginger. Grate onion until you have 1/4 C.

In an extra large skillet on the stove top heat canola oil. Leave temperature at medium-high. Add the minced ginger, minced garlic, and grated onion. Saute for 2-3 minutes or until tender. Add the ground chicken and kosher salt. Cook until chicken is no longer pink.

Add cabbage mixture to skillet along with the 2 C additional coleslaw mix. Saute for 2 minutes and then add soy sauce. Cook one minute longer and then remove from heat.

Place 3-4 T filling in each egg roll wrapper and roll to seal.

Place on baking sheet and spray the tops lightly with cooking spray.

Bake in preheated oven for 20-25 minutes or until browned on the edges. (If under-baked, egg rolls will be chewy!) Let cool for 5-10 minutes before serving.

Makes 14-16 egg rolls

    These were delicious!! Packed full of flavor. I had to sub ground turkey because we can't find a grocery store that does ground chicken but next time I'm going to try doing my own with the food processor. I'm sure it will be even better with the chicken. Next time we'll make sure to have company! - 2/18/10

    My wife made these and we loved them. Different texture than normal egg rolls but bake them long enough and they're nice and crunchy. The filling was amazing; very flavorful. Definitely quenched our fast-food craving! We'll be making them again for sure. - 11/4/09

    WOW! These are dangerously good. It was hard to stop with just one serving. Had to walk away to stay withing my limit. I made these as a meal, the only thing I did different was cook them in the NuWave Infrared oven. They came out very crispy. I wouldn't change a thing. - 12/5/11

    I am excited to try this recipe. I LOVE egg rolls and have not had one in a while because of the frying. I will try these next week. I wish I could try before the voting deadline, but I will not have time. - 11/10/09

  • The filling was pretty good but the egg rolls just didn't taste good baked. Some things shouldn't be baked. - 1/20/13

  • Don't have a food processor so I did everything by hand. I cooked the chicken first then shredded it. Still turned out wonderful.

  • These were very good! We really enjoyed them. The only thing I would caution you with is that all ovens are not created equal. :) Appears that ours runs high so they were a bit too crunchy. We'll try them again with less time. - 9/5/12

  • To Rosieruthie:
    You might try adding a pinch or two of Chineese 5 spice to the mixture. I think that's the familure seasoning that you're missing. But be carefull, it's easy to over do it with five spice :) - 2/1/12

  • I thought these were good, but I felt they were missing a little something. I think next time I might add a little hosin sauce or something else to spice it up. Although it doesn't really taste like take-out, it was satisfying!!! And I was proud of myself for making it! - 1/26/12

  • My daughter rarely eats my cooking but she loved these as much as I did! We dipped in lite soy, very tasty. Having 2 per serving makes these a whole meal for me with just a simple veggie side and a whole batch makes lunches for a week! I will definitely make these again! - 1/7/12

  • We thought these were good... but, it seemed to be missing something. I needed something for a dipping sauce. I tried mandrin orange juice and my husband used a little apricot preserves heated up. That's just what it was missing. I too used turkey instead of chicken. Thanks for the recipe. - 3/6/11

    I am going to try this but use spring rolls instead of egg roll wraps. After I check the nutrition info on the spring roll wraps, of course. - 11/5/09
