Serves 16

Prep Time 20 min

Cooking Time n/a


  • 150g mangetout, trimmed and shredded
  • 2tbsp hoisin sauce
  • Juice ½ lime
  • 250g cooked skinless chicken breast, shredded
  • 16 x 20cm rice pancakes
  • 1 small red pepper, thinly sliced
  • 1 large carrot, thinly sliced
  • 16 large fresh mint leaves
  • 2tbsp reduced-salt soy sauce,  to serve


  1. Put the mangetout in a small heatproof bowl and cover with boiling water. Blanch for 30 sec, then rinse under cold running water and drain well.
  2. In a medium bowl, mix the hoisin sauce with the lime juice and a good pinch of ground white pepper. Add the chicken and toss together.
  3. Soak the rice pancakes by dipping them individually into a bowl of hot water for 10–20 sec, then putting them on clean kitchen towels to absorb any excess water.
  4. Put a few chicken shreds in the centre of each rice pancake. Drizzle with a little of the hoisin mixture from the bowl, then top each with some mangetout, pepper and carrot slices and 1 mint leaf – but don’t overfill as the pancakes will tear.
  5. Lightly oil a serving plate. Roll up the rice pancakes to enclose the filling, tucking in the ends, to form spring rolls. As you finish each one, put it on the plate under a slightly damp cloth to prevent it sticking or drying out as you fill the others. Serve with the soy sauce in a bowl for dipping.
