And did I mention the delectable peanutty dipping sauce? I could seriously lick that bowl clean!

Just like my group of friends from various cultural backgrounds, these cool summer rolls represent a happy mingling of flavors from different cultures.

The poached chicken is tossed in a minty green chutney. I used a store bought green, cilantro mint chutney, to make it even easier. Just make sure the chutney is of a thick consistency so it coats the chicken well.

I used sweet ripe mango, baby spinach leaves, scallions, shredded carrots, cilantro and rice vermicelli also for the filling.

The rice wrappers and filling ingredients I used.

Prepare the rice vermicelli as per package directions. All I needed to do was soak mine in hot water for a minute or so and drain it. For the rice paper wrappers, soak them just a few seconds in warm water, remove and use them. I found out that the key is to be able to still see the design on the rice paper- it is that short of a time!

Place the filling on the lower 1/3, fold over the bottom corner over the filling, then fold in the 2 sides and roll as shown in the picture below.

Rolling the wrapper. Notice the rice paper design still showing a little.

Easy, breezy, isn’t it? I made these for the first time and was experimenting different designs and flavors as I went along .They are not as pretty but I enjoyed making them….and of course, eating them!

Ingredients-

  • 2 tablespoons store bought, green coriander mint chutney (of a thick consistency)
  • 1 cup poached/ cooked chicken, shredded
  • 1 cup rice vermicelli, cooked/prepared according to package directions and drained
  • ½ mango, peeled and cut in 1 inch strips
  • 1 scallion, cut in 1 inch strips
  • A handful of baby spinach leaves
  • ½ cup shredded carrots
  • Few cilantro leaves
  • 8 (8 inch) rice paper wrappers
  • Bowl of warm water ( to dip wrappers in)

For the peanutty dipping sauce-

  • 2 tablespoons peanut butter
  • 1 tablespoon hot water
  • 1 tablespoon hoisin sauce
  • 2 teaspoons soy sauce
  • ½ teaspoon fresh grated ginger
  • Juice of 1 lime

Store bought sweet chili sauce

To make the Chicken Mango Summer Rolls-

  1. In a bowl, add the mint cilantro chutney to the shredded chicken. Toss well to coat the chicken. Set aside.
  2. Have the other filling ingredients- vermicelli, mango, scallion, spinach leaves, carrots and cilantro leaves close and ready to go (as shown in picture).
  3. Taking one rice paper wrapper at a time, dip both sides in the warm water only for a few seconds and remove to a flat surface. You should still be able to see the design on the rice paper (as shown in picture).
  4. Add the filling ingredients about 1/3 way up from the bottom half of the wrapper, fold bottom edge of wrapper over it. Then fold the sides in and roll (as shown in picture).
  5. Repeat with other wrappers and filling.
  6. Refrigerate the Chicken Mango Summer Rolls.
  7. Meanwhile, make the peanutty dipping sauce. To the peanut butter, add the hot water and mix well. Add the rest of the ingredients and combine.
  8. Serve the refrigerated Chicken Mango Summer Rolls with the peanutty dipping sauce a sweet chili sauce of your choice.

      Thank you Ronit! I love them in the restaurant, especially in the summer so always wanted to try a fusion flavor version at home. I enjoyed making them so much so will make them again and hopefully learn to make them prettier:)

  2. Beautiful Sandhya. I am not very good at such delicate work, the bull in the china shop. I must give it a try though, they look amazing.

      Marisa, Here is my true confession! I made them for the first time. They were easy to roll as long as I followed the timing for soaking them. As I said in the post, I felt that was the key.Of course mine were are not as pretty but they were fun to make so I will be making them again.They are so perfect for the summer, right?

  7. Sandhya I haven’t handled these. But your fusion looks wonderful and definitely looks appealing to the pallet. 👍🏼. Very contrasting combination though – chicken and mango, another combo yet to try.

    What will you think of next Sandhya? These chicken mango rolls really scream summer. I like the idea of the poached chicken. Love those rice paper rolls, are they readily available in supermarkets or did you have to go to an Asian store? The dipping sauces sound great too. Anything tastes great with the addition of mango right? It gives it a nice pop of color too. Enjoy your weekend.

      Thank you Loretta! I enjoy summer rolls in the restaurants but was not fond of some of the ingredients in there. So I had to try making them at home. I made these for the first time but they are going to be a staple in our home.

      Oops, not sure where my reply went Loretta. But here it is again-
      I have loved eating summer rolls at restaurants but was not happy with some of the flavors in there. So I had to make them at home:) I enjoyed making them so much that they are sure to be a staple in our home. Yes the wrappers are available in supermarkets in the ‘Asian’ aisle. But I went to an Asian store which had many sizes and types……and I love mangoes. Finished one box of 18 and got another:)
