In one of our previous recipe, we’ve made the famous street food, Vietnamese Beef Noodle Soup, Pho Bo. In this recipe, we will make another version of this popular street food, Vietnamese Chicken Noodle Soup, Pho Ga. The main ingredient is, of course, chicken and optionally, chicken bones. For the herbs, you can find them at most Asian markets: cinnamon sticks, star anise, cardamom pods, cilantro seeds, cloves, etc.

You’ll need a big pot, big enough for a whole chicken. You can also use pressure cooker to speed up the process.
