These are very simple ones .
Chicken cha xiu (broiled chicken Chinese style)
2 chicken breasts, boned and skinned
1/2 package of roast pork seasoning mix (the big package has two small ones inside, use 1/2 of the small one)
1/2 cup water
Mix seasoning with water and marinate chicken for at least 2 hours . Grill over charcoal or under the broiler for about 10 minutes each side . Slice thinely when serve . It is good when dip in hot mustard and sesame seeds or use it to garnish wonton soup, or make sandwiches.SALAD ROLLS
Many people call this dish Spring rolls. I disagree because it is made from salad (gỏi) ingredients. It is a no fail recipe, no measurement to worry.
Many people make them as they go, right at the table, but to be convenient for everyone, they are made ahead of time. The most important item here is the dipping sauce.Ingredients:
1/2 lb boiled pork (side pork, bacon type) or picnic, with skin
1/2 lb boiled medium shrimps
1 cup cooked rice noodle
1 cup beansprouts
mint leaves, fish flavor leave(rau dấp cá), purple mint (tía tô) and wild chive (hẹ)
Slice pork thinely, bite size . Peel boiled shrimps, deveine, cut in half, length wise . Moisten rice paper, let sit about 30 second so it will be pliable, spread it on a plate or cutting board, place the herb, then beansprout,then rice noodle, couple slices of pork, roll up, begin at the end toward you, about half way, arrange shrimps (about 4 haves) on roll then continue to roll , seal edge. (Thís order is for displayed only. eating at home, one can just place the filling in any order, just make sure not to use too much so the roll will be too big to bite into)
Make about 6 rolls - serve 2 - eat with dipping sauce .Dipping sauce
There are several ways to make this dipping sauce but the main ingredient is Hoisin sauce . Here is my easiest method:
2 heaping teaspoons Hoisin sauce
1 teaspoon vinegar
4 Tablespoons water
3 heaping teaspoons peanut butter (can use either creamy or crunchy)
chopped roasted peanut
hot pepper (optional)
Mix all ingredients except chopped peanuts and pepper, bring to low boil in a sauce pan, stir constantly until smooth .
Sprinkle chopped peanuts and pepper when served .
