Healthy and Delicious Air Fryer Egg Rolls

Yes, I finally hopped on the Air Fryer trend. Yes, I'm also obsessed. I apologize. I understand that the internet has become a bit of an Air Fryer cult and I, Meara Rose, am their newest cult member. But it's hard to make things crispy so fast and so evenly in an oven! My favorite things to make so far are crispy veggies (like sweet potato fries and cheesy broccoli), and HEALTHY EGGROLLS!


Before:



They're super easy, super healthy, and fun to make! I serve them with sweet chili sauce, like this one.


Recipe:


1 LB Ground Chicken (I like using this for a light option, you could also use ground pork, beef, shrimp, or tofu!)

1/4 cup water or chicken broth ( I use broth)

1 Package Cole Slaw Mix

1 2 inch piece minced ginger (I like it gingery, most recipes call for less)

2 Cloves minced garlic

4 Green onions minced

2 tsp Sesame oil

1 TBSP honey

2 TBSP soy sauce

1 Egg

Approx 20 Egg Roll Wrappers (I like to fill them less because I feel like they crisp up more quickly, you could fill them more for larger egg rolls and make less).

Spray oil (I use avocado oil)


Directions:


  1. Warm sesame oil in a skillet with the ginger and garlic. Saute until aromatic, about 2 min.

  2. Add in Soy sauce, honey and chicken broth (or water) and warm through.

  3. Add chicken and cook thoroughly. Add cole slaw mix about half way through.

  4. Once cabbage is tender and chicken is cooked through, remove from heat and drain liquid from the mixture in a colander for about 15 minutes.

  5. Place the mixture back in a bowl (or the same pan from earlier if you're lazy like me) and mix in your egg and green onions.

  6. Wet the edges your egg roll wrappers and add about 1.5-2 TBSP of filling for each.

  7. Fold your egg rolls like this.

  8. Add to your air fryer and spray lightly with avocado oil. Cook about 7 minutes on each side at 350 degrees, flipping halfway through, or until golden brown and crispy.

That's it! ENJOY! This is my new favorite meal of all time. I serve this with stir-fried broccoli and a glass of sauvignon blanc :)
