this is a fantastic chicken recipe - great for grilling out on a summer night - these make great appetizers as well - you can wrap a stick in a lettuce leaf, top with garnishes, and hold it together it a toothpick, just make sure to put plenty of dipping sauce bowls around!

YUM! I love the vietnamese egg rolls at my local pho place so decided to give these a try. They're super easy to make and a great low fat option to still get my fix with out the extra calories. . .and honestly, I didn't miss the fried component at all. I broiled them as I didn't have access to a grill and I added a 1/3 cup water to the dipping sauce and couldn't tell. Also, I picked up some pickled daikon and carrot at my local asian market to go along with the cucumber slices, cilantro and mint leaves. . .SO GOOD! Thanks for posting.

This was very good. I made a few slight changes- I didn't actually cook the meat on the sticks, just made elongated sausages without putting them on sticks and it worked fine. I added bean sprouts, hoisin sauce, and rice to the selection of toppings. They weren't vietnamese with those additions, but they sure were good! Thanks...

This was really quite good. I made it a little spicier by adding cayenna pepper to the chicken, and it was great. I loved the sauce too, it was very tangy and spicy. This would be a great recipe for a party! In fact, I might just have to made these for a party in the future for one of my friends! Thanks for a great recipe. Keep up the good work!
