Tips

  • For crispy egg rolls, do not overcrowd your air fryer basket. Make sure there is space between each egg roll.
  • By spraying evenly with oil, you can ensure that your egg roll wrapper gets crispy.
  • Don’t want to use your Instant Pot? You can use a skillet or wok. But, cook your cabbage for about 5 minutes or until it wilts down and softens before adding to your wonton wrappers.

FAQs

Do you have questions about these Air Fryer Chicken Egg Rolls? Here are the answers to the most commonly asked questions.

How to store

Store leftovers in the fridge in an airtight container for up to three days.

How to reheat

Reheat in the air fryer at 350 degrees for 3 to 5 minutes, or until your egg rolls are warm all the way through.

Can I freeze?

Yes! However, I recommend freezing your egg rolls uncooked. There is no need to thaw them; before cooking just add an additional 2 to 4 minutes to your air fryer time.
