"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. 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.

Footnotes

  • 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.
  • Tip
  • Aluminum foil helps keep food moist, ensures it cooks evenly, keeps leftovers fresh, and makes clean-up easy.

Just a note, if you put the rice noodles in when the recipe says, they will disintegrate. They only need to be soaked in hot water for a minute. Drizzle with sesame oil before serving.
