Can you Freeze Them?

You can freeze Chicken Avocado Egg Rolls cooked or uncooked.

    • To reheat, just fry in oil from frozen on medium low heat, or reheat in the oven.

What To Serve Egg Rolls With

I’d serve Chicken Avocado Egg Rolls alongside a meal of Easy Orange Chicken, or make an array of appetizers including Jalapeno Popper Stuffed Mushrooms and Chinese Shrimp Toast. Have some friends over to share!

Your family will forget all about Cheesecake Factory’s egg rolls when they try these, because they are better (and way less expensive) than the best takeout!
