Step 1

Place snow peas in a small heatproof bowl and cover with boiling water. Blanch snow peas for 30 seconds, then rinse under cold running water; drain well. Place chicken and hoisin sauce in a medium bowl; toss to combine.

Step 2

Soak each rice-paper round, dipping them individually into a separate bowl of hot water, for 10–20 seconds, then place on a clean kitchen cloth to absorb any excess water.

Step 3

Place a few chicken shreds in the centre of 1 rice-paper round. Add a little hoisin sauce and top with some snow peas, capsicum, carrot and 1 large mint leaf. (Be careful not to overfill.) Roll rice paper to enclose filling, tuck in ends, then continue to roll firmly to form a roll. Place roll under a slightly damp cloth (to retain moisture). Repeat with remaining rice-paper rounds and fillings, continually placing finished rolls under damp cloth.
