Easy chicken pho

Add all this in step 2: chicken, cinnamon stick, cloves, star anise, fennel and coriander seeds, sugar, fish sauce.

In a large stock pot:

  1. Char 2 thick cuts of ginger and halved onions or shallots in oil over high heat.
  2. Add 2 quarts of water, and then all of #2 (see picture). Turn the heat to medium/low for a low and slow broth. I used chicken thighs for my first attempt.
  3. After 1.5 hours, strain all the pieces for a clean broth.
  4. Add broth to a hot fresh bowl of noodles, with garnishes: bean sprouts, radishes, limes, chilis.
