Chicken Rice Paper Rolls, How to Feed a Family of Six for Under $20



This recipe is from How to Feed a Family of Six for Under $20 which began as a Facebook page after mother-of-five Jas McPhee shared a delicious lamb curry recipe that her children “devoured”. The book is a collection of Jas’s most popular recipes with tips on shopping smart, cooking creatively while saving money.

 Chicken Rice Paper Rolls

This recipe is great for lunch or dinner. It’s light and tasty and is one of my family’s favourite meals. This recipe makes three rolls each. Serve with Asian Dipping Sauce (see below).

 Makes 18

Ingredients

400g boneless chicken breast, sliced

1 tsp honey

1 tbsp oil

18 rice paper wrappers

1 lettuce, chopped

2 carrots, grated

2 avocados, sliced

1 tomato, sliced handful of chopped nuts

1/2 spring onion, sliced small handful of coriander, chopped

 

1. Season chicken with salt and pepper and drizzle with honey. Heat oil in pan. Fry chicken

    for 5–6 minutes until lightly browned and cooked through.

2. Place half a cup hot water in a large bowl. Put one rice paper wrapper at a time in water

    until soft, then remove. Place chicken, lettuce, carrot, avocado, tomato, nuts, spring onion

    and coriander as filling. Fold in the sides and then roll up. Continue until you have made all

    your rolls.

3. Serve with dipping sauce on the side.
