The Easiest Chicken Pho

We got home late from Yosemite on Sunday night and stopped to grab some pho from our favorite place on the way. I’ve made it a million times before, and I like it a lot when its vegetarian but I figured a good easy recipe for some chicken pho was in order. I bought some good chicken stock at Trader Joe’s and simmered it with fresh ginger, star anise, cloves, garlic and corriander for about an hour. It came out fantastic. What else you choose to put in the bowl is up to you but I love a good amount of fresh herbs like cilantro and green onions. 

Have fun!
