The Recipe How-To
Step 1: Prepare the Filling
In a large bowl, combine ground chicken, carrots, jicama, bean sprouts and green onions. Add in minced garlic cloves and yellow onion, then season with salt, pepper and 1 tsp of sugar. Mix well.
Step 2: Assemble the Patties
To assemble the patties, prepare a small bowl of water and a plate lined with parchment paper. Take one egg roll wrapper and place it on a clean surface with one corner pointing towards you. Spoon about 2 tablespoons of filling onto the center of the wrapper. To shape it like a patty, fold one corner over the filling while tucking in the sides to form a rectangle shape. Continue to roll up tightly until a patty shape is formed.
Repeat this process with the remaining egg roll wrappers and filling mixture.
Step 3: Pan Fry the Patties
In a large pan, heat vegetable oil over medium heat until hot. Gently place each patty into the pan and cook for 3-4 minutes per side or until golden brown.
Step 4: Make Vietnamese Dipping Sauce
While waiting for the patties to cook, make the Vietnamese dipping sauce by combining lime juice, fish sauce, sugar, garlic cloves, and water in a mixing bowl.
Step 5: Serve and Enjoy!
Serve these delicious Vietnamese Chicken Eggroll Patties warm with a side of Vietnamese dipping sauce for an authentic taste experience. Enjoy!
Substitutions and Variations
When it comes to cooking, there is always room for experimentation and creativity. This recipe for Vietnamese Chicken Eggroll Patties is no different – there are countless ways to customize it to your liking or make substitutions if you don’t have all the ingredients on hand.
Firstly, if you’re not a fan of ground chicken, you could substitute it with ground pork or beef for equally delicious results. You could also use a combination of different ground meats such as chicken, pork, and beef for a more complex flavor profile.
If you don’t have access to bean sprouts, jicama or carrots, don’t let that stop you from trying out this recipe! You can easily swap them out with other vegetables such as thinly sliced cabbage or shiitake mushrooms. Just make sure the vegetables you choose are similar in texture and flavor to ensure that the overall taste is not affected.
Another great substitution option when making Vietnamese Chicken Eggroll Patties is the wrappers themselves. Instead of using the traditional egg roll wrappers or rice paper, other options such as spring roll wrappers, lettuce leaves or even tortillas will work just as well.
And finally, no Vietnamese dish is complete without dipping sauce! The traditional dipping sauce for these patties is a mix of fish sauce, water, lime juice and sugar but if you prefer something less pungent or sweet, you can substitute it with soy sauce instead.
Experimenting with these substitutions and variations will yield surprising flavors that could become your next go-to Vietnamese dish. So don’t be afraid to get creative and make this recipe your own!
Serving and Pairing
Vietnamese chicken eggroll patties are such a versatile dish that can be served in various settings. You can indulge yourself and your guests with these juicy and crisp rolls by serving them as an appetizer, a main dish or a snack, depending on the occasion.
If you are planning on serving these chicken eggroll patties at a casual gathering with friends, consider stacking them up on a large serving tray or plate with some fresh herbs such as mint, basil leaves or cilantro around as garnish. These herbs will add an extra burst of flavors and aromas to the rolls.
For a refined plating experience, go for a more elegant look by serving the rolls on individual plates accompanied by some dipping sauce. The cherry on top for most Vietnamese dishes is nuoc cham sauce- a quintessential dipping sauce. To make this Vietnamese dipping sauce, just mix together fish sauce, sugar, lime juice and water, and season with garlic and chili peppers to taste.
When it comes to pairing Vietnamese chicken eggroll patties with other dishes or beverages, there are plenty of options to choose from. If you opt for a light and refreshing meal then some salad greens or raw veggies would do the trick. A citrusy salad like green papaya salad will complement nicely the rolls.
Alternatively, you might choose to include noodles alongside your chicken eggroll patties. Vermicelli noodles cooked al dente or udon noodles would be fantastic!
As for drinks pairing them alongside Vietnamese iced coffee or an ice-cold beer will make it the complete package for any occasion.
In conclusion, these patties are very easy to make yet so deliciously satisfying whilst having great versatility in pairing possibilities!
Make-Ahead, Storing and Reheating
As someone who loves to entertain large groups of friends and family, I understand the importance of being able to prepare my dishes in advance. The Vietnamese Chicken Eggroll Patties Recipe is no different, as it can be made ahead of time and stored for days without losing any flavor or texture.
If you plan on making the patties ahead of time, you can store them in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 2 days. When you are ready to serve, simply reheat them in the oven at 350°F for 10-12 minutes or until they are heated through. Alternatively, you can also reheat them in a skillet over medium-high heat until they are heated through.
If you have leftovers that need to be stored, make sure they have cooled down to room temperature before storing them in the refrigerator. As with any leftovers, they should be kept in an airtight container and consumed within 3-4 days.
To reheat leftover eggroll patties, simply place them in the microwave for 30-45 seconds or until they are heated through. If you prefer a crispy texture, you can reheat them in the oven at 375°F for about 10 minutes.
One thing to keep in mind when reheating these patties is that they may lose some of their crunchiness upon reheating. However, this does not affect their flavor or overall deliciousness! Just be sure not to overheat them as this can cause them to dry out.
Overall, the Vietnamese Chicken Eggroll Patties Recipe is a great dish for meal prep and storing leftovers. With its amazing flavors and versatility, you won’t regret trying this recipe out!
Tips for Perfect Results
Here are a few tips that can help you achieve a perfectly delicious and crispy Vietnamese Chicken Eggroll Patties recipe.
1. Proper Wrapping
One of the keys for the perfect egg rolls is proper wrapping. It is essential to roll them just tight enough to form a cylinder shape, but not so tight that they burst or break during the frying process. You also want to make sure you don’t overstuff the rolls since this can affect how evenly cooked they are. Another tip is to cover your roll wraps with a damp towel as you fill them to prevent them from drying out.
2. Perfect Frying Temperature
The ideal oil temperature for frying Vietnamese Eggrolls Cha Gio is around 350°F. The combination of eggroll and ground chicken filling should be cooked thoroughly before consuming, and not undercooked as it can also get very greasy. For that reason, it’s essential to use a thermometer to test the oil temperature as some variations can cause the thermometer’s accuracy like over-crowding the pan, adding too many rolls simultaneously and not leaving enough space to fry each one properly.
3. Peanut Oil
Peanut oil is an excellent choice for frying because it has a high smoke point which means less smoke and less mess in your kitchen while cooking. Peanut oil also absorbs less moisture than other oils, so your egg rolls will stay crispier for longer periods.
4. Dipping Sauce
The dipping sauce can make or break the experience of the Vietnamese egg rolls dish. Don’t forget that there are several options available such as Nuoc Cham or Hoi Sin sauce, which elevate the flavors in your egg roll patties recipe without overpowering it. You can also experiment with different flavors such as mango and ginger sauce, peanut sauce or sweet chili oyster sauce.
5. Rolling Options
Another option if you’re looking for something lighter or need a gluten-free version is to try rolling the mixture into Vietnamese Spring Roll Rice Paper. These are thinner and have a slightly different texture, but just as satisfying. You can also substitute ground pork for your protein depending on your preference.
By following these steps, you will create the perfect Vietnamese Chicken Eggroll Patties that everyone will keep raving about!
