Ingredients

  • 1/2 pound boneless skinless chicken breast, finely chopped
  • 1/4 cup water
  • 1/4 cup light coconut milk
  • 1/4 cup creamy peanut butter
  • 3 tablespoons soy sauce
  • 1 green onion, sliced
  • 1 tablespoon minced fresh gingerroot
  • 1 garlic clove, minced
  • 1 teaspoon lime juice
  • 2 cups bean sprouts
  • 1 cup fresh sugar snap peas, trimmed and chopped
  • 1/2 cup shredded carrot
  • 2 ounces uncooked thick rice noodles
  • 12 spring roll wrappers or rice papers (8 inches)
  • 1/2 cup shredded red cabbage

Directions

In a large skillet, combine the first nine ingredients. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat; simmer, uncovered, for 8-10 minutes or until chicken is no longer pink. Set aside.
In a large saucepan, bring 8 cups water to a boil. Add the bean sprouts, peas and carrot; cover and boil for 3-4 minutes or just until tender. Drain and immediately place vegetables in ice water. Drain and pat dry. Cook rice noodles according to package directions; drain.
Soak a spring roll wrapper in cool water for 30 seconds; place on a flat surface and pat dry. Place 1 heaping tablespoonful of chicken down the center of the wrapper; top with a scant 3 tablespoons vegetable mixture. Top with noodles and cabbage.
Fold both ends over filling; fold one long side over the filling, then roll up tightly. Place seam side down on a plate. Repeat. Cover with damp paper towels until serving. Cut summer rolls in half. Yield: 1 dozen.

"I first tried spring rolls at a restaurant recently, and when I saw this recipe, I had to try it. Finding the ingredients was a challenge, but worth it! Flavor was terrific! I will have to perfect my wrapping technique, though. Made some substitutions. Used snap pea sprouts instead of bean sprouts (since store was out), and I used broccoli slaw (that had some carrot and red cabbage) instead of the sugar snap peas. Didn't want to buy a whole head of red cabbage, so I used more uncooked broccoli slaw instead of the red cabbage."
