I was feeling like we all could use a switch up in flavors today and these egg rolls sounded perfect! It’s true what they say, homemade is always better. And that’s definitely the case with these egg rolls.

I don’t know what it is about this time of year, but for whatever reason the cold weather always inspires me to make our favorite restaurant meals at home. We love ordering egg rolls out, but honestly, making them at home is simple and fun!

With family slowly starting to pile in for Christmas soon, I really try to have recipes like this in the line-up. Pastas and tacos are awesome, of course, but everyone has fun with an Asian inspired dinner. We love the flavors!

I’ll usually make a bunch of egg rolls, some chicken and some vegetable, then serve them up with a side of rice. If there’s a lot of people here, I’ll make some ginger chicken too.

Everything about these egg rolls are so delicious. Both the chicken and the veggie rolls are easy and fun to make. And the sweet chili sauce just makes everyone want to go back for more.

The details

Start off by cooking the chicken with garlic and ginger, then add plenty of vegetables, and splash of soy sauce. It’s a simple mix, but really delicious. Especially when you allow the soy sauce to caramelize around the meat.

For the vegetables in these rolls, I like to use a mix of shredded cabbage, carrots, and bell peppers. For the vegetable-only egg rolls, I like to add broccoli into the mix as well.

You can really use any vegetables you love, just make sure they’re either shredded or finely chopped.

Next, the wrappers. You need the larger size square egg roll wrappers, which can be found in most grocery stores these days.

Spoon the filling onto the wrapper and simply roll them up. Easy.

Instead of frying, which is traditional, I much prefer to oven bake. It’s healthier, easier, and to be honest, I like the flavor so much better. You actually taste the food, not the fried oil.

Here’s the key, you must rub each roll with olive oil before baking. This is the trick to getting the rolls crispy all around. Once the rolls are oiled, oven bake. Twenty or so minutes later you’ll have crispy, non-fried egg rolls.

While the rolls bake, make the sauce

It’s sweet Thai chili sauce, pomegranate juice, and soy sauce. So simple, but delicious. If you don’t love pomegranate juice, try using orange juice instead.

I use this sweet chili sauce whenever I want to add a sweet and spicy flavor to a dish…Asian or not. It’s beyond good and perfect to use as a dipping sauce. I also love to add a few pomegranate arils for an extra burst of flavor and added texture. This sauce is completely optional, but there’s only 4 ingredients and it’s so good. I highly recommend making it. Perfect when paired with these gingery egg rolls.

These are sweet, spicy, a little crunchy, and all things delicious…and kind of addicting. There’s really nothing not to love. Plus, these really are so fun to serve, both as an appetizer or for dinner!

Ingredients

Sweet Chili Sauce

Instructions

  • 1. Preheat the oven to 425° F.
    2. In a large skillet, add the oil and chicken. Season with pepper. Cook until browned all over, about 5 minutes. Add the shallot, ginger, and garlic. Cook 2 minutes, then stir in the vegetables and cook 5 minutes, until wilted. Add the soy sauce and let the sauce caramelize around the meat. Stir in the sesame seeds, then remove from the heat.
    note: if making vegetarian, just omit the chicken and start the cooking process with the oil and shallot. Cook the vegetables down until caramelized.
    3.  To assemble, spoon 2 tablespoons of filling onto each wrapper. Brush water around the edges of the wrapper, then roll up and place on a baking sheet. Brush each roll lightly with olive oil. Bake for 10-12 minutes, then flip and cook another 8-10 minutes more, or until the rolls are crisp.
    4. Meanwhile, make the sauce, combine all ingredients in a medium bowl.
    5. Serve the rolls warm, topped with green onions, and the sauce on the side for dipping.

Notes

To Make Vegetarian: omit the chicken and use 4 cups of mixed chopped vegetables. I love shredded cabbage, carrots, bell peppers, and broccoli.

    These were delicious and easy! I accidentally bought wonton wrappers so I had mini egg rolls, but plan to freeze them and take them to a NYE party.

    Made these for a Christmas party and they were divine. Did not have ground chicken so used ground pork with great results. For the veggies I used shredded carrots. Will definitely make these again!

    1. Hi Lori,

    These were incredible! I assembled the egg rolls and froze before baking, then baked at 425 as directed, but increased the time to 15 minutes for the first round, flipped, and cooked another 10 minutes. I didn’t thaw and I sprayed them with a ton of cooking spray before putting them in the oven. They crisped up beautifully and were delicious with the sauce. Would definitely make again!

    1. Hi Emily,
      Thank you so much for making this recipe, I am so glad to hear it was enjoyed! Merry Christmas!🎄🎁 xT

  4. I am so looking forward to trying these for Christmas. 😊 how many days in advance do you think I could prep them and keep them in the fridge? The filling and/ or the entire egg roll?

    1. Hey Sarah,
      I would say you could prep the whole egg roll a couple days in advance. Please let me know if you give the recipe a try, I hope you love it! xTieghan

    Made these last night. Had to use ground Turkey since our store was out of ground chicken but they were still delicious! Even my husband who normally hates egg rolls liked them.
    Also to make it super easy I bought a bag of coleslaw mix to use as the veggies inside 😅

    1. Hey Hannah,
      Happy Friday! I am thrilled to hear that this recipe was enjoyed. Thanks so much for making it and happy holidays!❄️ xTieghan

    I made these with just veggies and baked in the air fryer. They were not as pretty as yours but tasted great!! I’ll make them again and post pics.

    1. Hey there,
      Happy Friday! I am thrilled to hear that this recipe was enjoyed. Thanks so much for making it and happy holidays!❄️ xTieghan

  8. I made this over the weekend after reading comments from other followers. So I added a little Sriracha to add some additional flavor/seasononing and cooked a little longer in my oven for the crispness you showed. Everything perfect and a great appetizer! All ovens are a little different so everyone might want to check after your time and increase if needed! Bottom line, Delicious! Just another winner from Tieghen! Thanks again! Suz

  9. as soon as I saw this recipe on your Instagram I knew I had to try! It was my very first time making spring rolls and it was a success! They came out nicely browned, bubbles and crispy! Not sure what the negative reviews are about. I did add additional seasoning to my veggie mix but I do that with every recipe. Thank you for always giving us such great recipes! You’re my favorite 🙂

    We loved this! They were crispy (so important for an egg roll), tasty, and easy. I used an air fryer as well and we had this whole recipe done in about 30 minutes. Highly recommend.

    These were awesome! I used an air fryer and cooked about ~8 rolls at a time at 400 degrees for a total of 8-10 minutes, flipping halfway through. They were perfectly crispy and flavorful, especially with the sauce!

      Thanks so much for trying this recipe out, I am thrilled to hear that it was enjoyed. Happy Holidays! xTieghan

    Your recipes have been absolutely delicious and I was very excited to make these egg rolls! However baking egg rolls simply does not work like I had hoped. My family was very disappointed and I was very embarrassed. The filling was delicious and the sauce was a hit! I’ll try making them again but will fry them :). Thanks for sharing your recipes!
