vietnamese chicken sticks

READY IN: 35mins
Recipe by afr0bunny

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.
