These chicken and vegetable spring rolls are the perfect simple and light lunch! They're made with rice paper, vegetables, chicken and a delicious dipping sauce.

Spring rolls are one of my favorite light and easy meals! You can fry them for a more hearty meal, or keep it light and fresh! This version is super light and fresh with tons of veggies, shredded chicken, and a yummy sauce. It’s the perfect quick lunch or fun appetizer for summer.

Why you’ll love these chicken summer rolls

  • They are a no cook easy appetizer, light meal, or snack! When it is hot outside, it is so nice to have an easy bite that doesn’t require turning on the oven or stove.
  • They are made for a dipping sauce! While these are great to eat on their own, they are really the best with a dipping sauce! I love them with my Hoison Sauce or try them with teriyaki sauce.

The Ingredients for Chicken Spring Rolls

  • Rice Paper Wrappers. I suggest using wraps like this.
  • Butter Leaf Lettuce. 
  • Chicken.  You can use chicken thighs or breast meat.
  • Shredded Carrots, Shredded Purple Cabbage, Shredded Green Cabbage, and Green Onion. All of these vegetables add great flavor and crunch to the rolls, plus add nutrients!
  • Teriyaki  Sauce or Hoison Sauce. This is optional for dipping, but I think the sauce is essential! I prefer the hoison sauce!

Healthy is always a subjective term, but considering this is packed with protein and veggies, we’d call it healthy!

Tips & Tricks

  • The rice paper takes some work! If it’s your first time working with rice paper, it takes a bit of work to get the motion down, but you can totally do it!!
  • Don’t skip the sauce. These need a dipping sauce! I love serving them with homemade soy free hoisin sauce.

Can you pan-fry this recipe?

The lettuce may not hold up well to frying, but the rest of the ingredients probably would!


It’s definitely best fresh, but you can make it ahead of time and keep it in the fridge for a bit to serve later!


Rice paper is definitely a main ingredient in this recipe, but you can take the same concept and make this with a grain-free wrap like a coconut or tapioca wrap!
