rice paper rolls with poached chicken and chives

{gluten, dairy, soy, egg and nut free}

I’d seen delicious looking rice paper rolls at the shops and decided to make our own failsafe ones for lunch.

Rice paper rolls are good fun…they take a bit of preparation cutting everything up…but it’s so worth it.

We put everything on the table and the kids watched with big eyes as we chose the fillings and rolled their lunch (older kids would enjoy rolling their own).

I was worried that they would be a bit bland without all the yummy Asian sauces and condiments but the poached chicken with garlic and chives is really delicious and gives a salty, garlicky hit.

Have a play around with some dipping sauces. I listed mine below but I didn’t get actual measurements for them as I was in a bit of a hurry.

These are perfect for summer with the freshness and crunch of the veg.

And we all tried raw chokos for the first time too. They are interesting but a bit underwhelming raw. I’m sure they’ll grow on me.
