A barbecued chicken can be used in this recipe if you're short of time. You'll be surprised how popular sweet chilli sauce is when you present a plate of these to the younger set.


1-2 cooked chicken breast fillets (depending on size)

12 rice paper rounds

1 head butter lettuce

1 capsicum, seeded and cut into strips

1 carrot, peeled and cut into strips

75g bean sprouts

24 mint leaves

Hoisin or sweet chilli sauce, to serve


Cut chicken into strips. Dip one rice paper round briefly into a bowl of warm water and drain. Spread on a work bench and top rice paper with a small lettuce leaf, capsicum and carrot strip, a few bean sprouts, a couple of mint leaves and strip of chicken. Fold base up and then fold sides in and roll up firmly.

To serve 

Serve with hoisin or sweet chilli sauce for dipping.

Makes 12.
