How to Make Air Fryer Chicken Egg Rolls
These crispy Air Fryer Chicken Egg Rolls are ready to enjoy after five easy steps.
Step 1: Cook your chicken
Add 1 tablespoon of oil to the instant pot and set it to sauté. Once oil is hot, toss in the chicken to brown.
Step 2: Season your cooked chicken
Once chicken is cooked, toss in the garlic and ginger, salt, pepper, sesame seeds, soy sauce and vinegar. Let cook for 1 min.
Step 3: Add in your coleslaw
Top with coleslaw and place the lid on. Pressure cook on high for 0 minutes. Manually release the pressure.
Step 4: Wrap your egg rolls
On a flat surface, place the wonton wrapper like a diamond orientation. Place 2-3 tablespoons of filling in the center of the wrapper. Wet the edges of the wrapper and fold over the right and left side of the wrapper over the filling. Fold the bottom corner over the filling and roll it upward.
Step 5: Air Fry your egg rolls
Place egg rolls in the air fryer basket and spray with oil. Cook at 400 for 7 minutes, flip and spray with oil. Cook for 3 minutes.
Variations / Options / Add-Ins
Sesame Oil: Add 1/2 teaspoon of sesame oil to your cooked chicken for an added delicious and authentic flavor.
Sesame seeds: Don’t like sesame seeds in your egg rolls? Feel free to leave them out.
Buffalo Chicken: Make these egg rolls entirely new by adding in buffalo sauce and ranch dressing to your cooked chicken.
Want to know what to dip your egg rolls in? Here is a list of my favorite dips for egg rolls!
- Duck Sauce
- Yum Yum Sauce
- Sweet and sour sauce
- Ginger Soy sauce
- Spicy Peanut sauce
- 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.
Do you have questions about these Air Fryer Chicken Egg Rolls? Here are the answers to the most commonly asked questions.
Store leftovers in the fridge in an airtight container for up to three days.
Reheat in the air fryer at 350 degrees for 3 to 5 minutes, or until your egg rolls are warm all the way through.
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.
