Pho with Organic Chicken and Noodles

Chicken Pho – the vietnamese chicken noodle soup is certainly one of my favorite Asian dishes with its fresh herbal toppings. I would also consider it a soup and a salad combined.  Typically, the chicken or beef pho broth is slowly simmered usually includes bones to get that richness and distinct flavor.  When I am out in search of good vietnamese noodle soup, every once in a while I would find some fantastic recipes with very fresh ingredients.  However, on some occasions, I have been hit hard with a headache from MSG (monosodium glutamate) that was snuck in for extra flavor.  It is absolutely not necessary for flavoring because this dish is well flavored naturally on its own.  To make the broth, I typically will use cut chicken so that it doesn’t take a long time to simmer the broth.  My version still tastes really good. I will make this dish at home about two times a week using organic chicken.  The quality and the flavor is better and it’s healthier for you.  Use white or dark chicken meat. I prefer the white meat.

Pho with Organic Chicken and Noodles Recipe:

Preparation:  40 Minutes     Prep Time:  15 Minutes    Cooking Time: 25 Minutes    Serves:  4 People

-Slowly simmer chicken breast in water

-Add Anise seed powder, cinnamon powder, ground ginger, garlic and some fish sauce

-Stir the broth occasionally so that the seasoning dissipates well throughout the soup base rather than clump up from the cinnamon and anise powder.  

-In a smaller sauce pan, bring the water to a boil.  

-Then quickly cook the vietnamese thin rice noodles for about 4 minutes.  

-Drain the hot water and place the noodles in cold running water so that it cools off does not continue cooking.

In a soup bowl, add the noodles and top it with chicken and the broth.  Then add all the fresh ingredients – the bean sprouts, roasted black sesame seeds, basil leaves, sliced chili peppers, and even some cut romaine lettuce if you like.  Squeeze some lime juice into the soup to add some citrus and voila!  It is sooooo delicious!

-1 package of organic chicken breast
