🌯 Vietnamese Chicken Spring Rolls – An Easy Yet Wholesome Dish

Rice papers are my favorite ingredient. Being Vietnamese, we can roll up all sorts of food in these thin, delicate sheets.

On my blog, I’ve shared Vietnamese classic recipes with rice papers, like Gỏi Cuốn (Vietnamese spring rolls) and Bò Bía (Vietnamese spring rolls with Chinese sausages).

I also gave a detailed instructions for wrapping Vietnamese spring rolls (both fresh and fried versions).

Beyond traditional recipes, you’ll find creative dishes like easy rice paper noodles or the Vietnamese rice paper pizza.

This Gỏi Cuốn Gà (Vietnamese Chicken Sping Rolls) is kind of a fusion dish.

In Vietnam, avocado is not a popular ingredient for summer rolls, as we often use it in drinks and desserts like Vietnamese avocado smoothie.

However, as a devoted fan of California Rolls (by the way, traditional Japanese maki rolls don’t have avocado either lol), I’ve recently discovered that avocado pairs exceptionally well with savory dishes.
