  1. Bring a large pot of lightly-salted water to a boil. Season the chicken with salt and cook in the boiling water until no longer pink in the center, 7 to 10 minutes. Transfer to a large platter and allow to cool completely in refrigerator. Shred into small pieces once cooled.
  2. Combine the shredded chicken, ginger, jalapeno pepper, cucumber, basil, mint, cilantro, lemon grass, and peanuts in a large mixing bowl; toss until evenly distributed. Whisk together the fish sauce, lime juice, sugar, sesame oil, and peanut oil in a small bowl; add to the chicken mixture and mix with your hands until evenly coated.
  3. Fill a shallow pan with hot water. Dip the rice paper wrappers in the hot water until soft one at a time. Spread the rice paper onto a clean, flat surface. Place 1 leaf of lettuce into the center of a sheet of rice paper; spread about 1/3 cup of the chicken mixture onto the lettuce leaf. Fold the bottom end of the rice paper over the top of the mixture and then roll into a cylinder. Repeat until all ingredients are used. Cut into halves to serve.

Brought these to a summer afternoon baby shower, and everyone loved them! They're pretty, light, healthy and fresh-tasting. (I omitted the peanuts, but provided peanut sauce for dipping, as well...

Clever to mix the greens & dipping sauce in with the chicken. Very enjoyable alternative to the shrimp Vietnamese fresh rolls we like so much.

These were a BIG hit! I used some rotisserie chicken I had left over and since I don't care for cucumber I left those out, but I'm sure the small amount wouldn't detract from the deliciousness o...

I loved this. It's very similar to a deli product I order at a local asian market. Tasty & worth the little extra effort it takes to make my own! Thanks for the recipe!

Made these to take to work. Everyone loved them! I saved some to keep at home and my husband ate every last one.

These tasted really delicious, however I think there is an art to assembling them! Takes practice! Maybe next time I might add some vermicelli noodles. Served with chilli and peanut dipping sauc...
