1/4. Chinese lettuce

1/4 cucumber

2 hot chilies

2 tbsp roasted unsalted peanuts – chopped small

16 rice papers

1 small bunch each of mint and coriander

3 spring onions

1 bunch coriander

1 cup olive oil

2 tbsp sesame oil

2 chilies

2 cloves of garlic

1 tsp salt

 

Method

1. Salt and pepper the chicken. Then poach it in barely simmering pho stock until cooked through (about 10 minutes) Allow to cool then chop into small pieces. Reserve stock and use it as a soup or stock for future recipes.

2. Prepare the veggies. Wash and shred the Chinese cabbage. Mince the chilies. Chop the mint and coriander. Chop the spring onions.  Mix together in a large bowl with the chopped peanuts. Add the chicken.

3. Cut the cucumber up into 2 inch matchsticks

4. Prepare a bowl of warm water

5. Dip 1 rice paper in the warm water and submerge completely. Leave for 30 seconds. Lift the rice paper carefully onto a clean board and smooth out (it can be quite easy to tear the rice paper so be careful) The rice paper should have gone see through now and be very malleable.

6. Place a matchstick of cucumber and add about 1tbsp of the chicken salad onto the rice paper, towards the edge closest to you.

7. Tightly wrap the end over the salad and cucumber then tuck in the sides and continue to roll into a tight cigar shaped roll.
