Summer Rolls are the healthier, non-fried version to egg rolls. They may seem intimidating to make, but once you find the rice paper, they are actually extremely simple! They are also extremely versatile in that you can fill them with whatever ingredients you like most. You can fill them with a variety of veggies and with chicken, beef, or shrimp.  Here is a short tutorial to show how easy it is to make these!

Easy Prep!

I started making these when I was catering in NYC and there were plenty of markets around the city where I could easily find the rice paper. If it is not so easy for you to find, simply order online! Here is the link to the square Rice Paper sheets that I used.

The only ingredients that you need to cook are the rice noodles, vermicelli, and the protein and in this recipe, that is chicken. I simply cut the raw chicken breast into thin, 2-3-inch strips, marinated in Teriyaki sauce for a few hours (or overnight) then seared and cooked it in a skillet.

The other ingredients can be raw.  I used thin strips of carrots, red pepper, and bean sprouts along with a leave of basil for each roll.

Put some warm water in a pan large enough to fit the rice paper and soak the rice paper for a minute or so until soft and pliable.

Transfer the rice paper to another flat surface, such as a cutting board and start filling! Fill the center with a basil leaf, a small amount of noodles, chicken strip(s), and the veggies. Last, make the garlic honey Soy Sauce for dipping.

This is a fun and easy recipe to make with the kids!  Let them fill and roll (with your help if needed) and they are more likely to try it because THEY made it!

This recipe makes 12 Summer Rolls, 24 halves.  That means it’s enough for using as an appetizer for entertaining or using for dinner.

TIP: Rice paper dries out quickly, so when making these, I place them between cold wet paper towels until ready to serve.  You can do this a day in advance if stored in moist towels in an airtight container, but I would not make more than a day in advance.

Cut the summer rolls on a bias and serve with the Garlic Honey Soy Dipping Sauce and enjoy!!
