An easy to make sushi roll filled with spicy chicken, avocado, and cucumber. This spicy chicken roll is the perfect meal to impress your family and friends.
Spicy Chicken
  • 1 cup shredded chicken (canned or rotisserie)
  • 3 ½ tablespoons mayo, more to taste
  • 1 tablespoon Sriracha
  • 2 sheets seaweed, cut in half
  • 1 ½ cups cooked rice (short grain preferred)
  • Rice seasoning
  • 1 Persian cucumber, sliced (or regular cucumbers)
  • 1 large avocado, sliced
  1. Mix together the shredded chicken with mayonnaise and Sriracha. Set the bowl aside for now.
  2. Place a half sheet of seaweed on a cutting board. Place about ¼ - ⅓ cup of warm rice on the left side of the half sheet of seaweed. Lightly wet your fingers to prevent the rice from sticking. Spread the rice across the seaweed in an even layer.
  3. Sprinkle rice seasoning over the rice.
  4. Now, flip the seaweed and rice over to the other side so that rice side is faced down.
  5. Line spoonfuls (about 3 tablespoons) of the spicy chicken in a thin layer along the bottom of the seaweed. Add slices of cucumber and avocado to the spicy chicken.
  6. Once all the ingredients are placed, take the bottom edge of the seaweed rice and roll the seaweed and ingredients up until you reach the other end. The rice side should be on the outside now.
  7. Take the bamboo sushi rolling mat and place it in a Ziploc bag.
  8. Place the Ziploc-ed sushi mat over the sushi roll. Gently press against the bamboo sushi mat where the sushi roll is. This helps press the rice back against the sushi and smoothes out any area where the rice might start to fall off.
  9. Carefully remove the mat from the sushi roll.
  10. Take a sharp knife and cut the roll in half by sawing back and forth. You don’t want to press down into the sushi roll because that will cause the roll to break apart. By sawing back and forth, the roll remains intact.
  11. Place the two halves next to each other, and make two to three more slices to create 6-8 pieces total.
  12. Continue to make these rolls until all the ingredients are used.
  13. Serve the spicy chicken rolls with soy sauce, pickled ginger, and/or wasabi.
