Vietnamese Chicken Noodle Soup (Phở Gà)


Ingredients & Cooking Directions for Phở Gà - Chicken Noodle Soup

Estimated Servings: 4-5

Step 1: Cook the broth

16 cups water
3 inches ginger
1 small peeled onion
2 ½ tablespoons salt
3 tablespoons sugar
3 ½ pounds chicken

Place a pot of water on top of a high heat stove and wait for it to come to a boil. In the meantime, roast your ginger and onion in the microwave for about 3 minutes. When the water comes to a boil, add in the salt, sugar, roasted ginger and onion to the boiling water. Then add in the chicken pieces to the broth using tongs or if you add them with your hands, make sure to wear gloves to prevent cross contamination. After adding all of the chicken pieces into broth, cover the pot with a lid, and allow the chicken pieces to simmer on low heat for about 10 minutes. Then skim the scum off the top of the broth until the broth is clear. Now cover the pot with a lid and continue to simmer the broth for about another 3 minutes. While the broth is simmering, let’s prepare our spice mix.

***Remember to wash your hands thoroughly before and after handling raw chicken.

Step 2: Toast the spices

1 tablespoon coriander seeds
5 star anise
1 whole cinnamon stick
7 cloves
1/3 teaspoon cumin seeds
1 teaspoon black peppercorns
Break up your cinnamon stick into smaller pieces and add all of the spices into a small pan. Toast the spices on a medium heat stove for about 3 minutes or until the spices smell fragrant. Then pour the spices into a tea infuser, close it up and add it into the broth. Now put a lid on the pot and continue to simmer the broth for about another 7 minutes, making sure that the chicken is pieces are fully cooked.

***If you do not have a tea infuser, you can place the toasted spices into a cheese cloth and tie it up with a kitchen string.

Step 3: Boil the noodles

1 package Phở noodles
8 cups water

Cook the noodles according to the directions on the package. Then rinse and drain the noodles and set them aside until you are ready to assemble the dish.

Step 4: Assemble the dish

Thai basil
Bean sprouts
Cilantro
Lime wedges
½ cup sliced yellow onion
3 tablespoons chopped green onions
2 tablespoons fish sauce
Jalapeno slices
Sriracha and Hoisin Sauce

Make sure your herbs and veggies are washed and clean. Then mix the chopped cilantro, green onion and red onion into a little bowl for the garnish. After the chicken is fully cooked, remove the chicken from the broth, allow it to cool and then separate the chicken meat from the bones. Then add the bones back into the broth to give it more depth in flavor and make sure to discard all of the small chicken bones to prevent choking. Then pour in your fish sauce and continue to simmer the broth for about another 30 minutes. This a good time to taste the broth to ensure that it is to your preferred taste. If it is too salty, add in more sugar a little at a time and if it is too sweet, add in more salt or fish sauce a little at a time. Now slice the chicken pieces into thin slices and set it aside until assembling time. To assemble, add some noodles in the bowl, then place the chicken slices on top and garnish with the onion cilantro mix. Finally add in the broth and top it off with some ground pepper. Serve with the herbs, veggies and sauces.

  6. Hello, I love your recipe it looks really simple and yummy. One question, if I don't have a microwave at home, what can I do about roasting the garlic and onion in Step 1? Can i skip the step or instead turn them in a pan over the stove. Do I use a medium flame?

    Thank you!
