Thai Basil Chicken Spring Rolls with Peanut Dipping Sauce
I love these things... My kids love these things! Thai Basil Chicken Spring Rolls with Peanut Dipping Sauce are so crisp and fresh, you won't be able to stop eating them! Seriously!
What do we all order when at our favorite Thai restaurant? Spring Rolls! They are my family’s favorite and probably yours too! Making Thai Spring Rolls is remarkably easy and can be entirely prepped in advance. Plus, it’s a great way to get your kids or guests participate in the fun of cooking and to get loaded up with healthy veggies, especially dipped in this killer peanut sauce! They would eat Styrofoam dipped in our insane Peanut Dipping Sauce! It’s that good.
Chop up your favorite fillings, set up a Thai Spring Roll Bar with a station where they can roll their own spring rolls. Dinner is done! Today we share a recipe with chicken, but you can fill them with shrimp or pork or tofu. Veggies and herbs are the true stars. Napa Cabbage, matchstick carrots (bought prepped in a bag from the grocery store), hothouse cucumbers (the kind wrapped in plastic are the only cucumber worth eating), bell peppers, cilantro, mint, and basil all rolled up into a rice paper wrapper that was softened in a pan of hot water.
[GREAT TIP] These Thai Spring Rolls are a great way to use up leftovers from last night’s cookout and the perfect quick and healthy lunch. Healthy until you realized you just woofed 6 spring rolls… Piggy.
Can we talk about the sauce? It’s crack. Peanut Sesame Ginger Crack. Great as a dip, salad dressing, stir-fry sauce, or a marinade, you’ll want a mason jar full of it in your fridge always. Simply fill a blender with rice wine vinegar, sesame seeds and oil, fresh ginger, creamy peanut butter, and a few other ingredients and give it a whirl until smooth.
