Vietnamese Rice Paper Rolls are a hit with all and the combinations are endless.

Prep time: 15 minutes

Cook time: 10 minutes

Serves 4

Makes 16 rolls


  • Rice paper x 16 sheets
  • 2 parcels of rice noodles
  • 1 chicken breast
  • 8 tbs of crushed roasted peanuts
  • 16 mint leaves
  • 16 tsp of oyster sauce
  • 8 lettuce leaves chopped up
  • 2 carrots julienne cut
  • 1 Lebanese cucumber julienne


  1. Poach the chicken breast in water and then cut into thin strips
  2. Cook the rice noodles as per packet instructions and rinse thoroughly in cold water to avoid overcooking
  3. Chop up all the vegetables and prepare sauces
  4. In a flat baking dish, add some warm water and place your first rice paper circle in the water to become flexible. Leave it in the water for around 10 seconds (much longer it becomes quite difficult to roll).
  5. Place the rice paper on a slippery board. Add your oyster sauce, mint leaf,chicken, peanuts, carrots, cucumber, rice noodles and lettuce on top of each other right at one edge. Roll the paper over the contents, then flip in both sides around the contents and then continue to roll the roll up. Set aside and repeat.
