In a jar with a lid place all the chicken mince ingredients less the chicken and vermicelli noodles and shake well to combine

Place the chicken in a bowl and pour over 3/4 of the marinade, stir to combine, cover with cling wrap and refrigerate to marinate for at least 15 minutes

Heat a saucepan with a little olive oil and cook chicken for approx. 15 minutes or until cooked through, add the vermicelli noodles 2 minutes before your remove from heat, stir through

While chicken is marinating, prepare vermicelli noodles as per packet instructions 

While chicken is cooking, combine all salsa ingredients in a bowl and stir to combine, refrigerate until ready to serve

When your chicken has cooled, start to assemble your rolls, soften rice paper rolls to packet instructions. Fill with a little of the chicken mix, the cut vegetables, salsa and a little of the chilli, spring onion, peanuts and coriander, roll and repeat until you have used all the ingredients 

The left over marinade makes a great dipping sauce
