Hi everyone! I am excited to be back here again this month sharing a great recipe for your Superbowl party! This is not only great football food, but great for any occasion because you can make these ahead and they use such minimal ingredients!
One of my goals this year when entertaining is to stress less about the menu. I am the type of person that feels like I must make all.the.food. for every get together and I end up stressing so much I don’t enjoy the party! These eggrolls took me less than 10 minutes to make and I used a mixture of store bought and fresh ingredients, which really cut down on the prep time.
I tested this recipe out on a few family members and everyone agreed they were a hit and would gladly scarf them up at any party! You can use a variety of dipping sauces, homemade or store bought. We used some Sweet and Spicy Thai Chili Sauce I had bought and that went great with these! They would also be great with some wasabi if you like super spicy stuff!
Whether your team is playing or not in the Superbowl, it is still such a fun time to get together and eat lots of appetizers and dips! I know we will be throwing a party even though our team lost very early in the playoffs. If you aren’t a football fan, then just save this recipe for your next get together! You will (and your guests!) be happy you did!! I had some left over chicken and used it for these General Tso WonTon Cups with Crunchy Ramen Salad, if you are looking for some more party recipes!
General Tso Mini Egg Rolls
8 oz. general tso chicken/boneless wings*
1 cup shredded cabbage, or coleslaw mix
1/4 cup slivered almonds
2 tbsp. canola oil
1 package wonton wrappers
Dipping Sauce of your choice
*You can buy General Tso boneless wings in the frozen department at your grocery store. They are with all the bbq and buffalo boneless wings. I know that my WalMart also carries them precooked in their deli department!
Preheat oven to 425 degrees and liberally spray a baking sheet with cooking spray. Toss together the cabbage, almonds, oil, vinegar, salt, pepper, and garlic powder. Set aside for 15-20 minutes or until cabbage begins to soften.
If using frozen boneless wings, cook as directed on packaging. Once cooked and cooled, dice up into small bite size pieces. Add chicken to the cabbage mixture and mix to evenly distribute.
Lay your wonton wrappers out flat on your baking sheet. Lay one wrapper on top of another. Doubling up on your wrappers ensures that these don’t rip and the filling falls out. Place 1 tsp. of filling onto the center of the wrapper. Fold sides in and then roll up tightly. Place seam side down on your baking sheet. Repeat until no filling remains. Bake for 8 minutes or until golden brown and crispy. Serve immediately with your favorite asian dipping sauce! Enjoy!
