  • Active: 45 min
  • Yield: 8 egg rolls



  1. Mix together the chicken, collards, rice and black-eyed peas in a bowl.
  2. Heat the vegetable oil to 375 degrees F in a large skillet over medium-high heat.
  3. Line up the egg roll wrappers with one corner pointed toward you. Place a heaping tablespoon of the filling in the center of each wrapper. Fold the near corner up over the mixture, then fold in the left and right corners. Brush a bit of the beaten egg on the final corner to help seal the egg rolls, and then roll up into a package.
  4. In batches, fry the egg rolls in the hot oil until golden brown, turning occasionally, about 2 minutes. Drain on paper towels or a rack.
  5. Transfer the egg rolls to a serving plate and top with spicy honey mustard if desired.
