Every rainy cold weather people crave for something hot and soupy and I must say Chicken Pho is the perfect comfort food for that since its easy to whip up. And this Pho Recipe will take shortcuts so we can save time. For the broth just pour water in a pot add chicken broth cube, do quick simmer with herbs and spices. But if you got more time to spend in kitchen and want to make it from scratch you can check out chicken broth recipe.


Also, if you're out of stock or do not have some of herbs, spices or other ingredients on your kitchen for this recipe. Believe it or not this one is super flexible, you can replace those missing ingredients just like what i did. For example.


I used parsely instead of cilantro sprigs, cummin seeds powder instead of coriander seeds, replaced cloves with allspice, lime to lemon and for rice noodles you can use any noodle you like. Im using glass noodles cos I love how it absorbs all the flavours while its soaked in the broth.
