Easy and Healthy Desk Lunch: Chicken Avocado Spring Rolls

3 years ago

Vietnamese rice paper rolls are healthy and oh so delicious. They will forever remind me of visiting my sister when she worked in the seminary building at Multnomah University. I used to go visit her all the time and we would go get these rice paper wraps for lunch dates and we absolutely loved them. The great thing with Vietnamese food is it also fills you up. Long gone are the days of visiting my sister at work but new are the days for lunch dates with homemade chicken avocado spring rolls. :)

Ingredients:

  • Rice paper
  • Chicken, shredded
  • Rice, cooked
  • Avocado
  • Carrots
  • Cucumbers
  • Fresh bbasil
  • Lettuce
  • Soy, teriyaki or sweet chile sauce

Fully submerge rice paper in lukewarm water for a good 30 seconds or until soft, sticky and pliable. Using a plate works just great. Transfer to a dry surface.

I used my cutting board and stretched out the rice paper to compile vegetables on.

Layer rice, chicken, lettuce, carrots, cucumbers, basil and avocado.

Fold up the short ends as you would a burrito and than roll tightly from one end to the next.

Dip your spring rolls in teriyaki sauce, soy sauce or sweet chili sauce. 

Serve with Roasted Cabbage as a side. Yummy yum yum! This meal is one of my favorites.
