Eventually, I moved to Upstate NY and could no longer get these yummy lunches/dinners, so I learned to make them myself. It really is easy if you can find the spring roll wrappers at your grocery store. I've found these at Wegman's in NY and hopefully you can find them at yours too.
These are the ingredients you need:
Spring Roll Wrappers
Roast Chicken breast sliced - Great from leftover roast chicken or you can buy a roast chicken at the grocery; Large leaf lettuce (mine is red leaf), cucumber sliced the long way, cilantro, peanuts (chopped or not)... I also sometimes add thin carrot sticks to the mix. Some people like fresh mint leaves in theirs too, but I'm not a fan. I have also seen them made with cooked shrimp instead of the chicken.
In a large frying pan, heat about a cup of water to simmering. Turn off the heat.
Have a pair of tongs ready.
Get the entire other side wet. You don't want to keep it in too long or it will get too soggy and rip
Remove from the pan to your work surface. Try to keep it from doing this!
In order to do so, while you pick it up with the tongs, grab the other side with
your fingers. It will be hot, so be careful. If it does turn out like this, throw it
out and start over. I guarantee one will do this.
This is what it should look like.
I add the peanut and chili sauces right inside so I don't have to dirty a dish to dip in, but you can dip them if you like!
I generally eat 4 of them for a meal. Hope you enjoy this tutorial and love these as much as I do!
If you can't find the wrappers at your store, you can order them online at Amazon... Same goes for the sauces... but they only hvae a 6 pack of peanut sauce on there. I'm sure you can find the single bottle online somewhere....
