Ingredient Notes and Substitutions
Bell Peppers - I used red in this recipe, but you can mix it up and use a combination of peppers such as green and red.
BBQ Sauce - Any type of your favorite bottled BBQ sauce is a quick and easy choice, or you can make your own. Here is my recipe for Homemade Blueberry BBQ Sauce.
Egg Roll Wrappers - you can substitute egg roll wrappers with twice the amount of won-ton wrappers for mini egg rolls.
BBQ chicken egg rolls can be easily made ahead of time by following the instructions in the recipe. Once the egg rolls are assembled, don't brush them with oil, instead, store them in an air-tight refrigerator container for up to two days.
To serve, remove them from the refrigerator 20 minutes before cooking them, brush them with oil, and bake as per the instructions.
BBQ chicken egg rolls taste great for a light dinner, serve them with a salad on the side.
Storing and heating leftovers
Store leftover cooked and completely cooled BBQ chicken Philly cheesesteaks in the refrigerator for up to four days.
Re-heat them from the fridge or freezer without thawing them in the oven.
