Chinese Spring Rolls

These are a good starter or buffet item, which can be premade and refrigerated before cooking.

Tip: These can be made as a meat free option by omitting the chicken ingredients.


  • 8 spring roll wrappers (can be found in most supermarkets in the international isle)
  • 2 cups of chicken stock
  • 1 large chicken breast. I cook my chicken in my Mealthy Multipot
  • 3/4 cup of coleslaw mix 
  • 2 green onions thinly chopped
  • 1 teaspoon each of garlic & ginger paste (or 2 teaspoons of mixed garlic and ginger paste)
  • 1/2 teaspoon of Chinese five spice (fennel, star anise, cloves & peppercorn)
  • 1 tablespoon of soy sauce
  • 3 to 4 cups of oil for frying (or can be oven baked)
  • 1 egg whisked (this is to seal the rolls)

Now let’s cook

Making the Filling

Add the chicken stock and the chicken breast to the MultiPot, secure the lid, choose the poultry setting, and cook for 15 minutes. Let the steam release naturally.

Once cooled shred the chicken, or cut in to small cubes.

In a bowl, mix the chicken together with the five spice, coleslaw, garlic, ginger, soy sauce, and the green onion.

Filling the Spring Roll Wrappers

Take a spring roll wrapper, and place it on the counter with a corner pointed towards you.

Brush all corners of the wrapper with the whisked egg mix.

Put 1 to 2 tablespoons of the filling mixture on the wrapper, just above the bottom corner (the one closest to you), fold the bottom corner over the filling, then take the two side corners and fold them in, roll the wrapper away from you.

If frying, heat the oil to 350F and fry for 2 to 3 minutes each side until golden brown.

If baking, preheat the oven to 420F, and line a baking sheet with parchment paper, sprayed with oil.

Place the spring rolls on the sheet, and brush with the remainder of the whisked egg mix.

Bake for between 15 and 20 minutes, until crispy and golden brown, turning half way through.

Tip: Serve with fresh salad and your choice of dipping sauce.
