Little Chicken Salad Rolls

Little chicken salad rolls is a truly mouth watering dish that is healthy and just takes approximately an hour to make.

Recipe

To serve a party of 4 you will need:
  • 200g of chicken breasts or thighs. Ensure that the skin has been removed first
  • A cup of chicken stock
  • A medium sized carrot that has been grated
  • 1/3 of a cup of roasted peanuts that have been chopped
  • A slice of ginger
  • Between 7 and 10 mint leaves
  • 1/4 of a cup of rice vinegar
  • Between 7 and 10 lettuce leaves
  • 1/2 a tablespoon of soy sauce
  • 1/2 a red capsicum that has had all its seeds removed and has been finely sliced
  • For your chicken salad rolls you will also need to make a dipping sauce. This is made using
  • Between 1/4 and a 1/2 cup of soy sauce
  • 1/2 a teaspoon of caster sugar
  • 1/2 a tablespoon of rice vinegar

Making your Little Chicken Salad Rolls

To make your little chicken salad rolls first take a large frying pan and, using a medium heat, bring the stock and ginger to the boil. Next reduce the heat to a simmer and place the chicken in the frying pan with the stock and ginger. At this stage the frying pan should be covered and the contents cooked for approximately 15 minutes.

During this stage of the process you should turn the chicken meat over in the frying pan after approximately 8 minutes, to ensure that the meat is evenly cooked on both sides. Next take the chicken from the frying pan and dispose of the stock, as you will have no further use for it during the making of this dish. Once the chicken has cooled down sufficiently to make it comfortable to handle, shred the meat with your hands.

Next take a large bowl and mix the vinegar and soy sauce together before adding the carrot, red capsicum and chicken meat, ensuring that you gently stir the ingredients together as you add them. After you have completed this take the lettuce leaves and place them on a plate so that they face upwards and then place a mint leaf on top of them before placing the chicken mixture on the leaves and sprinkling with peanuts. The leaves should then be carefully rolled and eaten along with the dipping sauce.

Using Other Meat Instead of Chicken

It is also possible to substitute, if you prefer, tofu in place of chicken meat. To do this it is best to slice the tofu into cubes before mixing with sesame oil and mixing with vegetables. Other types of meat in place of chicken is also an option, to add a little variety to the dish. This can be other white meat, such as turkey, or red meat such as pork.

The little chicken salad rolls dish is very colourful, which is often a good indication that the dish contains within it a vast variety of minerals and vitamins.
