I love my Aunt Debbie’s recipe for Ham Egg Rolls! They are so good and I look forward to making them every New Year! A few months back I was craving egg rolls but had no ham to make them. Chicken however I did have! I came up with this delicious recipe for chicken egg rolls and man are the good!!! I decided to play with the sweet and sour sauce as well and came up with a beautiful Orange Sweet and Sour Sauce that compliments the recipe beautifully. The best part is if you have left overs these freeze really well! Simply reheat and enjoy! Serve these with my Ham Fried Rice for an unforgettable meal. Makes about 30 egg rolls!
- 1 whole cooked chicken, shredded then chopped
- 2 teaspoon black pepper
- 1 teaspoon salt
- 1/3 head green cabbage, chopped
- 2 cups snow peas, chopped
- 1 large carrot, shredded
- 5 green onions, white and light greens chopped
- 1 heaping tablespoon ginger, shredded fine
- 2 packages egg roll wrappers
- 1 egg
- 1 teaspoon water
- vegetable oil
In a large bowl season the chicken with the black pepper and salt; mixing well to coat. Add the cabbage, snow peas, carrot, green onions, and ginger; mix well. Set aside
Preheat the oil in a deep fryer to 350-360 degrees.
Meanwhile in a small bowl beat the egg and water together.
To make the egg rolls fill one egg roll wrapper at a time with about 1 heaping tablespoon of filling. Fold the egg roll (there are directions on the package for doing this correctly) wiping a small amount of egg on the fold of the wrapper to hold it in place. Only make 4-6 at a time or they will fall apart.
Deep fry 4-6 at a time, turning them, until all sides are golden brown. Drain upwards on paper towels. Fill 4-6 more egg rolls and fry, repeat until there is no more filling. Meanwhile make the Orange Sweet and Sour Sauce.
- 1 cup sugar
- 2 teaspoon soy sauce
- 1/2 teaspoon orange zest
- 1/8 cup apple cider vinegar
- 1/2 to 1 teaspoon Sriracha Chili Sauce, to taste
- 3 tablespoons fresh orange juice
- 1 1/2 teaspoons corn starch
In a small bowl mix the orange juice with the corn starch until dissolved. Put all ingredients into a small sauce pan; stirring until well combined. Heat over medium-low; bring to a boil. Lower heat and simmer for 4 minutes or until sugar dissolves. Serve hot with egg rolls. From my family to yours, enjoy!
