This is my take on a quick, at home version of Pho. Some of my ingredients are non traditional, but it's my recipe, right? My husband's eyes light up when I hand him a giant bowl of this to enjoy and that's what counts.

Ingredients

FOR THE BROTH

2
boneless skinless chicken breasts, you can use other cuts if preferred
1 Tbsp
better than bullion chicken flavor
1/2
white onion
1 tsp
ground ginger in the tube, or fresh grated ginger
1 tsp
ground lemongrass in the tube, or stalk fresh
1 Tbsp
thai fish sauce

FOR THE BOWLS

1 pkg
pho noodles, or substitute rice noodles or regular thin spaghetti
4 or 5
leaves napa cabbage, sliced across in 1 inch sections
1 c
snow pea pods
1/2 c
julienne or matchstick carrots
1 c
fresh bean sprouts
2 c
fresh baby spinach

GARNISHES

1
jalapeno sliced thin
1/2 bunch
fresh cilantro, roughly chopped
thai red chili sauce or siracha sauce
1
fresh limes cut in wedges

Directions Step-By-Step

1
Note: I use breasts to keep it low fat. If you want a more traditional flavor use skin on bone in pieces of your choice. Adjust your cooking time.
2
Ingredient note: I use the tubes of ginger and lemongrass that you find in the produce section of the grocery. It's a time saver for me and I always have them on hand.
3
Place everything for the broth in a pot with about 3 quarts of water. Bring to a slow simmer and skim off the skum that rises.
4
When chicken is done remove it from the pot. About 20 minutes for boneless breasts. Leave the broth simmering.
5
Prepare your noodles according to package directions. Drain in a colander and rinse with cold water.
6
Have all of your bowl ingredients ready. Put the snow peas, cabbage,and carrots in the broth. Turn up heat and cook on a low boil for 5 minutes.
7
While that's cooking assemble the bowls. Place noodles in first, top with spinach and sprouts.
8
Slice the chicken and place on top.
9
Ladle the hot broth into the bowls. The heat will be enough to cook the spinach and sprouts.
10
Serve immediately with the garnishes.
