  • 3 green onions

  • ½ 6 ounce package refrigerated cooked chicken breast strips

  • 3 tablespoon rice vinegar

  • 1 teaspoon sesame oil or olive oil

In a food processor combine white parts of the green onions, the chicken breast, sweet pepper, 1 tablespoon of the vinegar, the oil, black pepper and, if desired, crushed red pepper. Cover and pulse with several on-off turns until chicken mixture is finely chopped. Transfer to a medium bowl. Add cabbage and toss to combine. Divide chicken mixture into four individual microwave safe container; chill.

  2. For the dipping sauce, in a small bowl combine sliced green onion tops, the remaining 2 tablespoons vinegar, the water, and soy sauce. Divide among 4 small containers.

Roll up and, if desired, cut in half. Serve with dipping sauce.
