These easy buffalo chicken egg rolls made in the air fryer are the perfect party appetizer! Loaded with flavors of your favorite buffalo chicken dip, they’re perfect to dip in blue cheese dressing!
I’ve been wanting an air fryer for a year or more now and the main reason was EGG ROLLS!!
Which is actually kind of weird, because I don’t really eat egg rolls all that often in normal life. But I just knew that if I had an air fryer, I could make all kinds of egg rolls and I was dying to experiment!
These Buffalo Chicken Egg Rolls made in the air fryer did not disappoint. Not even a little bit.
They taste so much like the classic buffalo chicken dipping sauce that everyone knows and loves, and they’re so much easier to eat in this little compact egg roll wrapper. And dipped in blue cheese dressing, they just become heavenly!
The egg roll wrapper gets nice and crispy in the air fryer. This tastes just like it’s deep-fried in oil but without all the extra fat and calories.
But the filling is where it’s at. Filled with shredded chicken, buffalo sauce, blue cheese crumbles, green onions, and more. It’s so creamy with just the right amount of kick.
I also tested one of these egg rolls baked in the oven to see how it compared to the air fried version. Guys, I’m not even going to show you the picture of it. I got more burnt looking than fried and didn’t taste anywhere near as good. It also took quite a bit longer than the air fryer
Ingredients needed for this recipe:
- shredded chicken
- buffalo wing sauce

How to Make Buffalo Chicken Egg Rolls in Air Fryer
If you’ve never homemade egg rolls before, please don’t be intimidated. I promise you, it is much easier than you think!
Then add 1.5 cups shredded chicken and 2 green onions, finely chopped. Mix it together well with the buffalo cheese mixture.
Before you start, get a small container and fill it with water. The water will act as your glue to hold the wrapper together.
Place about 2 tablespoons of filling towards the lower half of the diamond. Try to place the filling in a lot so that it resembles an egg roll.
Then, fold the bottom point of the wrapper up over the filling to cover it.
Next, bring both of the sides in. If you have to, use your fingers to fold in the little corners at the bottom where the side meets the filling.
Now dip the tip of your finger in water and then run it along the top edges of the egg roll wrapper. You’ll want to run it along the entire point at the top and down a little along the sides.
Then start rolling the egg roll from the bottom up towards the top point.
Once you reach the top, fold the point over and press the edges down. The water should seal it together immediately. If it dried out a little, don’t be afraid to put another little dab of water along the seam.
Then, place the wrapped egg rolls directly in your air fryer basket. I place them in a single layer with a little room between each one. This way they get golden and crispy the whole way around.
Set your air fryer temperature at 370 degrees and cook for 10 minutes. I stopped the cooking halfway through to flip them over.
