The BEST egg rolls recipe ever! These avocado chicken egg rolls are stuffed with mozzarella cheese, my avocado chimichurri dipping sauce, juicy chicken and creamy avocado. They’re bound to become a favorite! This amazing recipe is inspired by Cheesecake Factory’s avocado egg rolls; I had them once and fell in love! I love this appetizer recipe for parties, special occasions or just because! This chicken recipe can even double as a dinner entree.
FYI, if you’re ever in San Francisco, make sure to stop by the best Cheesecake Factory in Union Square on the 5th floor of the Macy’s building. Just be prepared for a bit of a wait on the weekends. The views from the window seats and outdoor patio are well worth the wait!

The Avocado Chicken Filling
What I love so much about these chicken egg rolls is all the different textures! This easy appetizer recipe starts with juicy chicken. I like to use chicken thigh but chicken breast will also work well for this recipe. Just the cut the chicken into small, bite-sized pieces so that every bite has some chicken. The chicken is then fried with diced onion and seasoned with smoked paprika. I love the smoky flavor of the paprika combined with the cheese and avocado! The juicy chicken is combined with loads of chunky and creamy avocado, melty mozzarella cheese and seasoned with lime juice, Worcestershire sauce and chimichurri sauce!
The Chimichurri Dipping Sauce
The chimichurri is actually my favorite part of the recipe! I use it for the filling and as a sauce. It adds ALL the flavor to this appetizer recipe! I make a batch of my ‘Avocado Chimichurri Sauce’ – it’s a super creamy and zesty sauce that also doubles as the dipping sauce. This sauce recipe comes together in minutes with a food processor! You’ll need just 1/4 cup for the filling; use the rest for dipping! You can watch my step-by-step video recipe for the sauce here:
