12 rolls


  • 1 ½ cups peanut sauce, divided

  • 1 (1 1/2 inch) piece fresh ginger root, minced

  • 2 cloves garlic, minced

  • 2 teaspoons soy sauce, divided

  • 1 pound skinless, boneless chicken breast halves - cut into 1 inch pieces

  • 2 teaspoons peanut oil, divided

  • 12 ounces bean sprouts

  • 6 ounces fresh snow pea pods

  • 4 green onions, chopped

  • 1 pound watercress, chopped

  • ¼ cup chopped fresh cilantro

  • 2 large carrots, peeled

  • 12 spring roll wrappers


  1. Combine 1 cup peanut sauce, ginger, garlic, and 1 teaspoon soy sauce in a bowl. Add chicken and mix until coated. Cover and refrigerate for 30 minutes.

  2. Heat 1 teaspoon peanut oil in a wok over medium heat. Add bean sprouts, snow peas, and green onions and cook until heated but still crisp, 3 to 4 minutes. Remove from the heat.

  3. Transfer bean sprout mixture to a large bowl; mix in watercress and cilantro. Use a vegetable peeler to peel long strips carrot into the bowl. Add remaining 1 teaspoon soy sauce and toss to coat.

  4. Heat remaining 1 teaspoon peanut oil in the wok over medium heat. Add marinated chicken; cook and stir until no longer pink in the center and the juices run clear, about 10 minutes.

  5. Fill a large bowl with hot water. Submerge one wrapper in the bowl and hold until soft and pliable, about 2 seconds. Lift wrapper, let excess liquid drip off, and place onto a work surface. Place two large spoonfuls chicken and a small handful vegetable mixture into the center of the wrapper. Fold in the two sides, then fold the bottom up and over the filling; roll to seal. Repeat to make remaining spring rolls.

  6. Serve with remaining 1/2 cup peanut sauce for dipping.
