Dipping Sauce, recipe follows. Wash chicken breasts and pat dry. Combine all ingredients for the filling in a bowl, mix well and cover. Marinate for about 1 hour at room temperature. Preheat a grill. Grill chicken in pieces (cut to preference) until golden brown on both sides and cooked through. Soak the wrappers, 1 at a time, in warm water until softened. Remove from the water and pat dry. Fill each wrapper with the chicken and all of the toppings. Roll the wrapper once over the filling. Tuck in the ends and roll completely. Press to seal. Repeat with remaining wrappers and filling. Serve with dipping sauce.

  • Wow, I have made these, only did not have the lemon grass, daikon or mint. I had no idea what it was called, just made it up on my own with what I had at the time.

  • Thanks for this recipe! I am engaged to a Vietmanese man and would love to surprise him for his Birthday by making him something from his own Country.
