With only 5 ingredients, these Airfryer Chicken Roll Ups Recipe are a delicious air fryer appetizer or air fryer snack that everyone will enjoy. Serve with a dipping sauce to cool the heat or add extra chile to spice it up even more.
These Airfryer Chicken Roll-Ups Recipe are an example of an easy air fryer appetizer that’s way healthier than the deep-fried counterpart.
Using traditional frying methods, these spicy chicken roll-ups would be completely soaked with oil but with an air fryer, you still get the crisp outside and melty cheese inside without feeling like you’re biting into a big gob of oil.
If you’ve been living under a rock for the last year, an air fryer is the newest kitchen gadget fad. It uses convection heat to quickly cook foods with no oil or significantly less oil than you’d use with conventional frying methods. The theory is that it cooks faster than using your oven and is healthier than deep-frying because you use less oil while still getting the crispy outside.
Variations to Chicken Eggrolls
These are very simple chicken eggrolls, which makes it even easier to change the recipe around to create something new. Here are a few ideas:
- Cheese: These use a mozzarella cheese stick but you can change it to a pepper jack or cheddar cheese or any other cheese that you can get in a stick or chunk.
- Leftover Meat: While this recipe calls for rotisserie chicken, you can easily change it to leftover taco meat, pork, or steak. You can use almost any meat in this recipe. Another idea is bacon. Either use only bacon or add it to the selection of meat.
- No tortillas? Try egg roll wrappers. While tortillas are less expensive, if you don’t have them you can use egg roll wrappers or even wonton wrappers.
Don’t have an Airfryer? I highly recommend getting one, like this Airfryer. You can make this recipe in the oven, but they will not be as crispy as it is in the Air Fryer. Of course, you could fry them traditionally in oil, but that creates an oily mess that makes these an unhealthy snack.

These would make a great air fryer appetizer to make for the Super Bowl or any other sporting party but I also make them for my kids as a quick and easy air fryer snack after school. It’s so nice giving them something not soaked in grease and the chicken provides just enough protein to hold them until dinner, even if dinner is late due to whatever extracurricular activities they have going on that day.

This will make them soggy. You want to heat them in the oven or a skillet. A few minutes in the oven, or frying pan, will make these chicken rolls crip up just like they came out of the air fryer.
