I cooked up a pack of Trader Joe’s – Trader Ming’s Chicken Egg Rolls to pair along with dinner one night. I’ve tried just about all Trader Joe’s egg rolls and these have to be the most “authentic” egg rolls they sell. They’ve got the classic thick and crunchy egg roll shell.
I cooked these in a convection oven with a little spritz of Pam cooking spray over the top of them. They cooked up perfectly, evenly and had a nice crispy wrapper. The filling is more along the lines of the filling you’d get when ordering an egg roll at a Chinese restaurant. It’s filled with vegetables, but it’s also filled with pieces of shredded chicken, instead of pieces of pork. There are pieces of carrot, cabbage, water chest nuts, bok choy, bamboo shoots, etc. mixed with the chicken. They’re perfect just as is, but they’re even better dipped into a little bit of sweet chili sauce.
A serving is one egg roll, which are 140 calories or 4 points plus values. Definitely worth it if you’re an egg roll fan.
