Story
Our dinner normally has some form of chicken dish and in order to make this vietnamese dish stand by itself, I had to bring some form of protein in the roll. Since chicken was easily available and almost required minimum prep, I decided to go with chicken as my choice of filling. Now as every other day, we had some left overs and I try to incorporate them as much as possible. This time around I had chinese fried rice from last night's dinner so decided to just use it. Paired chicken with rice and some salad leaves, seasoned it with some red chili garlic sauce and topped it with tomatoes, rolled it up and a healthy delicious delight was on its way to the dinning table. It is as easy as I just described. Just try it...
