Recipe Ingredients for Pho with Chicken

1 tablespoon vegetable oil, plus additional for drizzling
1 1/2 c. chicken breasts
1 small yellow onion, quartered
8 c. water
8 cubes chicken bouillon
2 tbsp. ginger root, peeled and thinly sliced
4 cloves garlic, sliced
1/2 pound angel hair pasta
1 small red onion, quartered lengthwise and thinly sliced
1 fruit lime, peel removed and cut into small, thin strips, and lime cut lengthwise into wedges
2 cups bean sprouts
1/2 cup mint leaves, torn
1/2 cup basil leaves, torn
1/2 cup cilantro leaves, coarsely chopped
2 tbsp. hot chili sauce, sriracha for stirring in
2 tbsp. plum sauce, for stirring in, or hoisin sauce

Recipe Directions for Pho with Chicken

  1. In a medium size skillet, combine the chicken, yellow onion and enough water to cover. Bring to a boil, then lower the heat and poach the chicken until the juices run clear, 12-15 minutes. Transfer the chicken to a plate to cool; reserve the cooking liquid. Discard the chicken skin and bones, then shred the meat with two forks.

  2. While the chicken is working, bring a pot of water to a boil for the pasta. Strain the reserved chicken cooking liquid into the pot. Add the pasta and cook until al dente, then drain, cool and add a drizzle of oil to keep the noodles from sticking. In a second pot, bring the water, chicken bouillion, ginger and garlic to a boil, then lower the heat to a simmer.

  3. Turn a small bundle of noodles on a fork and place in each of four large individual soup bowls. Top with the shredded chicken. Douse each serving with the juice from a lime wedge. Using a slotted spoon, remove and discard the ginger and garlic from the broth, then ladle lots of the hot broth over the chicken and noodles. Add in the bean sprouts, red onion, lime peel, mint, basil and cilantro as you like. Season with the sriracha and plum sauce as desired.
