Chicken Pho Soup
Get ready for a Winter warm up with this Asian inspired chicken noodle soup. Slurping is encouraged as you enjoy this intensely flavorful soup.
We are always looking for ways to use roasted chicken, however, this soup lends itself to store bought rotisserie chicken or poached chicken. We used a mixture of dark and white meat, but if your family prefers one over the other, that's fine too.
Although somewhat similar to the American version of chicken noodle soup, this soup gets it's rich flavors from the 5 spices that make up Chinese Five Spice and then increases that flavor by incorporating heat with jalapeno peppers. Traditional Vietnamese Pho (pronounced 'fuh')soup is typically made with beef, but the American version is normally made with chicken. This may be because we're always trying to find ways to make our favorite foods just a little healthier (but still just as delicious)!
Our Chinese Five Spice is hand blended from ground star anise, cloves, fennel, cinnamon and Sichuan peppercorns.
