Chicken summer rolls

A lot of people call these 'spring rolls' but officially those are fried and these are summer rolls.

It takes a bit of time to make them, but the effort is definitely worth it!

How to cook

  • Chop the chicken breast into pieces and mix them with some soy sauce, ginger, lime juice, pepper, cumin and salt.
  • Slice all the vegetables into small strips. (Cucumber, bell pepper, carrot and avocado).
  • You can dice the red pepper into small pieces.
  • Bake the chicken pieces and put them in a bowl.
  • Put all the ingredients into seperate bowls. (including the taugĂ© and sesame seeds)
  • If your noodles need cooking first do so before putting them in a bowl.
  • Pour some hot water into a large bowl, large enough to fit a rice paper sheet.
  • Put a rice paper sheet into the bowl until it's soft, take it out and put it on a plate.
  • It's a bit tricky to get the rice paper unbroken & unfolded on a plate, but you'll get the hang of it.
  • Put the different ingredients a little out of the middle on the rice paper sheet. 
  • Wrap the sides closed first. Then the smaller length part. Wrap the other part around it as tightly as you can.
  • For the dressing I mixed soy sauce with lime juice, pepper, ginger and cumin.

  • In my pictures the filling is in the middle. It's easier to move it a bit to the bottom.
  • Sometimes you try to put too much filling in the summer rolls and they break.
  • You add more hot water when it cools down, it will speed up the process.
  • When you want to keep them for the next day it's best to put them in a sealed tray on top of wax paper. Make sure the part where the rice paper is double layered touches the wax paper, otherwise they will tear.
  • Off course you can swap any of the ingredients if you like.
  • One last tip: buy the carrots pre-sliced.
