With ingredients like red pepper sauce, blue cheese, and chicken, it’s easy to tell that these aren’t exactly normal egg rolls. However, they are super tasty and perfect if you want to add a little kick to your next party.
These egg rolls are fairly easy to make, but you can expect to spend about an hour and a half in the kitchen.
Step 1: Start With The Ingredients
Gather the following ingredients:
2 cups chicken broth
2 cups water
1 1/2 lb boneless skinless chicken breasts
1 teaspoon olive oil
6 medium stalks celery, cut into thin 1-inch strips
1 cup grated carrots
1/4 teaspoon salt
10 green onions, finely chopped
1/4 cup Frank’s RedHot Original sauce
2 tablespoons butter, melted
1/2 cup crumbled blue cheese (2 oz)
oil for deep frying
1/4 cup all-purpose flour
12 egg roll skins (from 1-lb package)
1 egg, beaten
1/2 cup blue cheese or ranch dressing
While the ingredients list might look daunting, don’t fret! The recipe is easy to follow.
Step 2: Make The Chicken
Step 3: Make The Filling
Step 4: Prepare The Egg Rolls
Pour 3 to 4 inches of oil into a deep fryer or 4-quart Dutch oven and heat to 350°F. While you wait for it to heat up, prepare the egg rolls for frying.
Sprinkle a work surface with flour and place one egg roll skin on the surface with one corner facing you (it’s best to cover the extra egg roll wrappers with a damp towel so they don’t dry out). Place 2 rounded tablespoons of the buffalo chicken mixture just below the center of the wrapper. Fold the corner of the egg roll skin closest to you over the filling, tucking the point under. Fold in and overlap the right and left corners. Brush the remaining corner with the beaten egg and gently roll. Press to seal. Repeat with the remaining egg roll wrappers and chicken mixture.
Step 5: Fry The Egg Rolls
Fry the egg rolls in the deep fryer or Dutch oven a few at a time. They will take about 4 to 6 minutes to turn golden brown. Turn once during the process. Drain the completed egg rolls on paper towels. When they are all finished, place the egg rolls on a platter and serve with blue cheese dressing (or ranch!).
Making egg rolls can be an involved process, but these buffalo chicken egg rolls are worth the time they take. Plus, they are a unique food to bring to your next party or potluck!
