BBQ Chicken Summer Rolls are an amazing appetizer your guests won't be able to resist. The barbecue sauce will keep them coming back!
It’s a roll-able, dunk-able ASIAN INVASION.
In the most perfectly smoky-sweet and crunchy-fresh veggies kind of way.
I would like to introduce you to your face’s newest, most best-est friend ever. Say “hello” to BBQ chicken summer rolls that are BURSTING at the seams with tender-crisp peppers, roasty-charred corn, zesty, JUICY lime and sweet pineapple.
WITHHHHH homemade (healthy what, what!) BBQ sauce for dipping, dunking, or even guzzling. If that’s your thing, you know?
As someone who’s goes a little crazy every time that smoky-sweet, thick sauce makes her “saucy-senses” tingle, well, that is MOST DEFINITELY my thing. I put that stuff on everything: BBQ chicken flatbread, barbeque chicken wings.
You name it, it’s THERE.
You. Guys. Throw every. Single. Notion. of the typical Summer roll that I know your brain is thinking about right now – the whole rice noodles, shrimp, peanut sauce thing – out the window. And then stomp on it.
That might seem a little excessive and dramatic. But, really. It’s not.
Because typical Thai shrimp summer rolls with peanut sauce <<<<<<<< BBQ chicken summer rolls.
With pineapple. Because have you ever had BBQ chicken pizza and then added pineapple to it? If yes, you know that heaven-on-my-tongue that is currently happening while I sit here and think about how the sweetness collides with that sticky-smoky-saucy deliciousness in the definition of the most perfect food marriages that has ever happened to this place in the solar system that we call home.
So think of that, but Asian-i-fied to be turned into a summer roll. AKA: perfect finger food that you can shovel into your March Madness loving selves while you peep ALL the games.
I, for one, still am not really on board the train of this madness, but I will show my hungry little mouth if the aforementioned BBQ chicken summer rolls in question are present. Don’t worry though, I will lie to you and pretend that I came because I really just enjoy spending time with you, and we are totally close-super-tight friends like that.
I know you want to get rollin’ (ha ha, punny) BUT, few quick facts to file into your brain to achieve your ultimate, most-perfectly tight and non-exploding summer roll GOALZ:
- Clean up your work space, and have everything in little bowls before you get going. I did not do this. I got frustrated and a few bowls of veggies met a sad fate of become floor sweepings. Not fun times for veggies. Not fun times for you.
- Protip: Chop the inside of the lettuce OUT. You know that hard part that connects to the leafy, soft yumminess? I’ve found those little buggers ALWAYS poke out of my rice paper and cause the unwanted explosion of veggies and create non-dunkable rolls. SAD FACE.
- Speed and agility: you must have it! Okay, maybe not agility so much, this is not the roll Olympics, but SPEED. Rice paper wraps get not-so-sticky ultra-fast. Channel your inner speedy Gonzales, so everything can stay happily tight and sealed.
And then you will be happily munching your way through the land of crunchy fresh veggies, and the ONLY kind of bursting that will be going on…
Is your taste buds. BOOM.
