Chicken Spring Roll Bowls

You know those little rice paper spring rolls? They are so amazingly good, one of the many things I miss about living in the PNW. There were little shops all over the place that you could grab these things to go. To go with our healthy-eating month of July, I decided to recreate the spring rolls in a deconstructed form. Absolutely delicious!
