  • 1 yellow onion (quartered)

  • 2-3large piece of ginger peeled (about 3-4 inches)
  • 1/4 cup fish sauce
  • 2 tbsp sugar
  • 3 star anise
  • 1 tbsp peppercorn
  • 1 tbsp coriander seed
  • 4 cloves of garlic
  • 3 oz medium width flat rice noodles
  • 1/2 cup thinly sliced onions
  • 2 scallions thinly sliced

  • 1/4 cup chopped mint
  • 1/2 thinly sliced jalapeno
  • 1/2 cup thai basil

Remove and discard skin from chicken. Take apart all the white meat and reserve. Take the remaining chicken carcass and juices, and add to a large stockpot. Add chicken stock, water, onions, ginger, fish sauce, sugar, star anise, coriander and garlic. Add generous amounts of salt and pepper and bring to a boil. As soon as the broth starts to boil, bring to a slow simmer and cover for 3-5hours (the longer the tastier).


Skim top of the broth to remove any oil or residue. Remove carcass and strain broth through a fine sieve. In the meantime, prepare the rice noodles per instructions, drain and add to a bowl covered with broth.


Garnish to your liking with onions, scallions, cilantro, lime, mint, jalapeno, thai basil, bean sprouts, hoisin & siracha.


*for a smokier flavor, you can roast the onions and ginger on a baking sheet at 400 degrees for 30 minutes before adding to the stockpot
