TIPS FOR MAKING CHICKEN EGG ROLL IN A BOWL:

  • You’ll want to use the tri-color coleslaw mix for this recipe (the one with shredded carrots.) If you cant find it you can use regular cole slaw mix and add in some matchstick carrots.
  • Ground pork, beef and turkey all work in this recipe as well. Be sure to check out my recipe for BEEF EGG ROLL IN A BOWL.
  • To give it the traditional egg roll feel, I garnish with wonton strips. If you’re trying to keep this low carb then you can skip them.
  • You can usually find the wonton strips in the salad dressing section of your grocery store near the croutons. 
  • If you want to spice this up a bit, you can add some red pepper flakes or sriracha sauce.
  • This is all made in one pan so there is less clean up – that is one of my favorite parts about this recipe!
  • Easily double this recipe to serve more people or to have as leftovers.

    Tip: For extra Asian flavor, add a bit of sesame oil to the pan to saute the garlic, along with some grated fresh ginger. I also do scallion and/or onion.
