Spring rolls and yummy sauce! 4-25-13

Good afternoon friends!!
Last week I ate these chicken spring rolls and no peanut "peanut" sauce.  It was a delicious meal full of veggies and lean protein.

First things first.....grill some chicken, you'll want it to be cool for putting inside your rice paper.
I used my spiffy little kitchen grill that is perfect size for 2 chicken breasts.

Spring Rolls and nut sauce
6 sheets rice paper
2 cooked chicken breast
Carrot slices
Cucumber slices
kale, Spinach or Romain
2 tbsp Braggs Aminos
4 oz apple sauce, unsweetened
1/2 lime, juice (may need more to thin out sauce if too thick)
1/2 cup Coconut milk (canned is best)
1/2 cup Almond butter, unsweetened
1 tsp garlic
1 1/2 tsp ginger

Slice chicken and veggies, thin slices.
Soak rice paper according to directions.  This package said 5 seconds, but I found it worked better after about 10 seconds in warm water.  they were easier to roll.  Do 1 at a time.  Layer chicken, avocado and veggies and roll like a burrito.

 Mix all ingredients for the sauce in a medium size bowl, if too thick add the remaining half lime juice.
