What is in Buffalo Chicken Egg Rolls?

The ingredients in this recipe are so simple! Grab yourselves some egg roll wrappers and get started! Check out the recipe card at the bottom of the post for all of the exact measurements.

  • Vegetable Oil: Used to fry the egg rolls, giving them a crispy and golden outside.
  • Cream Cheese: This will mix together with the sauce more easily if it is softened at room temperature beforehand.
  • Frank’s Red Hot Sauce: This makes the filling tangy and spicy, giving the egg rolls their signature Buffalo flavor kick.
  • Chili Powder: Leave this out if you want these to be more mild instead of hot.
  • Salt and Pepper: These enhance the flavors in the egg rolls.
  • Shredded Cooked Chicken: This is the protein of the dish and makes them hearty and filling.
  • Shredded Carrots: These add a nice crunch to the buffalo chicken egg rolls.
  • Shredded Cabbage: The cabbage adds additional crunch and flavor.
  • Egg Roll Wrappers: These hold all of the ingredients together and become golden brown on the outside when they are all cooked!

How to Make Buffalo Chicken Egg Rolls

These egg rolls are simple to put together and cooking them in the skillet is a breeze!

  1. Heat the Oil: Fill a heavy bottom skillet with at least an inch of vegetable oil, and heat the oil to 325 – 350 degrees Fahrenheit over medium high heat.
  2. Mix Ingredients: In a large bowl, whisk together the cream cheese, hot sauce, chili powder, salt and pepper until it is smooth. Then, add in the chicken, carrots, and cabbage. Mix well.
  3. Fill the Egg Rolls: One at a time, lay out a single egg roll wrapper on a clean work surface with one point facing you. Keep a small bowl of water to help seal the seams shut. Place a few tablespoons of the filling in the egg roll wrapper just below the center.
  4. Seal the Egg Rolls: Begin rolling the wrapper away from yourself, stopping halfway, and folding the side in on the roll. Continue rolling the wrapper up and secure the seam with a bit of water.
  5. Add Egg Rolls to Oil: Once you have all the filling wrapped up in the wrappers then carefully place them in the hot oil to avoid splashing any oil out. Don’t crowd the egg rolls in the pan. Ensure they have some space to move around.
  6. Cook until Golden Brown: Cook the egg rolls until they are golden brown on all sides. Remove them from the pan and cool them on a paper towel.
  7. Serve with Dip: Serve fresh with blue cheese or ranch dressing.
