Pho Ga Soup


Vietnamese chicken noodle soup. After ordering this soup at a local Vietnamese restaurant, I decided to try to make it at home. This is a very flexible recipe. Feel free to substitute some of your favorite vegetables or try different noodles. Enjoy!

  • 1 tablespoon vegetable oil

  • 1 small yellow onion, chopped

  • 1 (8 ounce) package baby bella mushrooms, chopped

  • 4 cloves garlic, minced

  • 8 cups water

  • 1 (6.75 ounce) package rice stick noodles (such as Maifun®)

  • 8 teaspoons chicken bouillon

  • 2 cooked chicken breasts, shredded

  • 4 green onions, chopped

  • cup chopped fresh cilantro

  • 2 cups bean sprouts

  • 1 lime, sliced into wedges

  • 1 dash Sriracha hot sauce, or more to taste


  1. Heat vegetable oil in a large saucepan over medium-high heat; saute onion, mushrooms, and garlic until tender, 5 to 10 minutes. Add water, rice noodles, and chicken bouillon to onion mixture; bring to a boil. Reduce heat to low.

  2. Mix shredded chicken, green onions, and cilantro into soup; simmer for 5 minutes more. Transfer soup to serving bowls and top with bean sprouts, a squeeze of lime juice, and Sriracha hot sauce.

Cook's Note:

I like to use a rotisserie chicken from the grocery store to save time. Try adding ginger and fish sauce to the soup and garnishing with basil and jalapeno for a more authentic taste.
