Baked Chicken Egg Rolls

These baked chicken egg rolls are so easy to make! Wonton wrappers are stuffed with shredded chicken, and tons of cheese and baked to a crispy perfection!

Things are finally starting to feel settled here in Philly. It is starting to actually feel like this is where we really live.

Things that I’m loving so far:

#1: The culture of walking everywhere. Yeah sure, I could have walked 2 miles to the store in Kansas (and I guess I did occasionally) but people just don’t do that as much there and I don’t have a car here so I’m kind of forced to do it. I’m loving it.

#2: An insane amount of new restaurants to try. We have only tried a few so far, but I can’t wait to keep exploring more. I was growing sick of the same restaurants over and over in Lawrence (I’m sure I will start to miss them though.)

#3: New York City is just up the road!: My husband and I spent last weekend in the city. It is crazy how easy it is to get there. I took a bus that cost $13! This might be a problem considering my love for the city…

#4: Our apartment and especially my kitchen! I know I already told you all about that, but seriously!

Things that I’m learning to deal with but don’t really love so far:

#1: The rain. Does it usually rain this much here? Seriously. It has been raining almost every day. Not all day, but for fairly long periods of time every day.

#2: The humidity. This may be due to the rain. I thought it was humid in Kansas, but it feels so much worse here. I never used to sweat. This is what sweating “like a pig” feels like, eh?

#3: People saying “You’re not in Kansas anymore” when pretty much anyone finds out I moved from Kansas. Apparently the Wizard of Oz is all people on the East coast know about Kansas.

But overall the awesome things outweigh the slightly annoying things. And it really is starting to feel like home.

Baked Cheesy Chicken Egg Rolls being dipped in sour cream

One of the reasons I hardly ever post savory recipes on the blog is because I am always too impatient to take pictures before eating my dinner. It is a real problem. But I decided to snap a few quick pictures of these before we destroyed them the other night.

Excuse my hurried, non-styled, sloppy pictures. We were hungry. But these turned out really delicious and were so simple to make.

I rarely buy egg roll wrappers because I almost never use them all up before they get stale. But I decided to use the last of these wrappers to make a quick dinner to use up some ingredients we had on hand. Dip them in some sour cream and you have a super simple dinner or appetizer for a party.

I apparently suck at explaining how to roll an egg roll so check out this post that has detailed pictures about how to do it!

  12. I made them tonight but they didn't brown like they show in the pic. The taste was great. ( I put some spiracle hot Chinese chili sauce in the mix). I also tried some in egg roll wrappers and some in spring roll wrapper. The spring roll wrappers came out much better. And of course the few that I fried came out the best in spring roll wrappers.

  13. Admiring the dedication you put into your site and in depth information you provide.
    It’s awesome to come across a blog every once in a while that isn’t the same out of date rehashed material.

  18. You actually make it seem so easy with your presentation but
    I find this matter to be actually something
    which I think I would never understand. It seems
    too complicated and very broad for me. I am looking forward for your next post,
    I will try to get the hang of it!
