|1/2||lb.||boneless, skinless chicken breasts (after cooking, place half in a tightly sealed container and refrigerate for use in Mango Chicken Stir-Fry, see link below)|
|1/4||tsp.||freshly ground black pepper|
|4||med.||(8.5-inch-diameter) rice papers|
|1/4||cup||coarsely chopped fresh cilantro|
|1||small||red bell pepper, thinly sliced*|
|1||small||yellow bell pepper, thinly sliced*|
|1/2||cup||trimmed snow peas, julienned*|
|1||small||mango, peeled and sliced into long, thin strips*|
|1||Tbsp.||toasted sesame seeds|
|1||Tbsp.||bottled hoisin sauce|
- Preheat the oven broiler to high. Line a broiler pan with foil. Set the oven rack 6 inches from the heat source. Sprinkle the chicken on both sides with the salt and pepper. Add the chicken to the broiler pan. Drizzle with the olive oil. Broil the chicken for 5 to 6 minutes per side. Remove the chicken from the oven and let cool.
- When the chicken is cool enough to handle, thinly slice it. Place half of the chicken in an airtight container and refrigerate for use in Mango Chicken Stir-Fry.
- Fill a large, shallow bowl with warm water. Add one rice paper disk to the bowl and let soak for 20 seconds. Remove the rice paper from the bowl and transfer it to a flat working surface; pat dry with paper towels. Make a 3-inch row of filling ingredients near the bottom third of the rice paper; leave a 1-inch margin clear of filling. Sprinkle the filling with some of the sesame seeds and drizzle some hoisin sauce on top. Carefully fold the bottom end of the paper over the filling. Fold over each side of the rice paper and then roll it up like a burrito. Repeat with remaining ingredients. Cut each roll-up in half on a bias to serve.
Note: Do not soak the rice papers all at once. Make one roll at a time. For best results, fill and roll rice papers immediately after soaking them in water.
*Place half in a tightly sealed container and refrigerate for use in Mango Chicken Sir-Fry.
