Making Egg Rolls in the Air Fryer

There are a lot of reasons to make egg rolls in the air fryer. I could tell you about how much healthier they are by avoiding all the extra fat but the real reason I make them in the air fryer is connivence.

You can have these egg rolls ready in the amount of time that it takes to heat up a pot of oil to fry.

Among the other reasons your house won't smell like deep fried oil and the clean up is much easier.

My final reason is Air Fried Egg Rolls are great for making with the kids. You don't have to worry about anyone burning themselves with dangerous hot oil, not to mention the fire hazard.

What Kind of Chicken to Use in this Recipe

I happened to have some smoked chicken breast leftover from a previous meal so that's what I used to make the chicken fajitas.

You can also use a whole rotisserie chicken, canned Chicken or Cooked Chicken thighs for the recipe. Its really up to you and what you prefer or have available

Tips For Making Air Fried Egg Rolls

  1. Let the air fryer come up to temperature before placing the egg rolls in the air fryer.
  2. Spray the Egg Rolls with Cooking Spray.
  3. Flip egg rolls half way through cooking so they get crispy on both side
  4. Season the Egg rolls immediately after the egg rolls are cooked
  5. Let the egg rolls cool for 5 minutes before cutting
