Healthy Egg Rolls!

I love egg rolls, but I'll be honest, the thought of the deep fried greasy soaked dough just doesn't appeal to me anymore.....so I started popping them in the oven and was surprised at how good they are and how much healthier.

This was last night's dinner, unfortunately since I have a stomach bug, I didn't get to eat any, how sad....but the kids and the hubby said they were delicious.

Here's how I make mine:

Chicken Egg Rolls

1 package cooked chicken (cut into bite size pieces)
Coleslaw
1 medium onion (finely diced)
salt and pepper to taste
garlic powder
soy sauce
egg roll wrappers

In a frying pan add about 2 tablespoons of olive oil and heat slightly. Add the coleslaw, onion and garlic . Cook until crisp tender, add the chicken and the soy sauce to taste.... and the salt and pepper.

Spray a cookie sheet with non stick spray....

On an egg roll wrapper, place about a tablespoon or a little more of the filling in the middle

Fold the bottom corner over and then each side, moisten the edges of the last flap with some water and then fold over.

Place seam side down on the baking sheet, spray lightly with some more non stick spray

and bake at 400 degrees for about 20 to 25 minutes or until golden brown.

  6. I was so inspired by this recipe. I love egg rolls but always thought that making them at home would be too hard. You can see my variation on your recipe here:

  8. I don't normally eat egg rolls due to my issues with the textures of foods and not eating anything if I don't know what's in it. THESE I would definitely give a try! Thanks!
