Crock Pot Chicken Pho
*Usually I toast the spices and char the onion and ginger and add them to the crock pot with the bone broth in the morning and by the time evening rolls around there is a lovely broth waiting for us. This can also be done on the stove top. I would suggest simmering the broth for 1 to 2 hours before serving. The longer you cook the broth, the stronger the flavors will be.
Ingredients For Broth:
10-12 cups Chicken Bone Broth or Chicken Broth
1 Whole Yellow Onion
1 oz Fresh Ginger (Peeled)
1-1.5 Cinnamon Sticks
1 Tbsp Coriander
½ tsp Whole Black Peppercorns
2 Star Anise
Ingredients To Be Added To Broth:
2 cups Shredded Chicken (Cooked)
Ingredients To Be Added Table-side:
1 Bunch Fresh Basil
1 Bunch Fresh Cilantro
Sliced Green Onion
Sliced Yellow Onion
**Sriracha Sauce, Hoisin Sauce and Sliced Jalapenos may also be added, but because I am Gluten Free and am focusing on anti-inflammatory properties not heat, I myself omit these items.
Toast Cinnamon Sticks, Coriander, Star Anise, and Peppercorns on a dry skillet to release oils. Add to Crock Pot. Char Onion and Ginger either on the stove top or broil in the oven. Add to Crock Pot along with the Chicken Bone Broth and set on low setting for 4 to 6 hours.
A half hour prior to serving, remove Onion, Ginger, Cinnamon Sticks, Coriander, Star Anise and Peppercorns from broth. Transfer Broth to a large pot. Add Shredded Chicken and Rice Noodles. Bring to a boil. Remove from heat and let sit until the Noodles are tender. (I do it this way because it is easier for my son and me to eat when both the chicken and the noodles are tender. This is not the traditional way to eat Pho.)
When serving, remove Noodles by twisting with tongs and place in individual serving bowls. This is done based on each person’s individual serving size. Place the Chicken on top of noodles in each bowl and cover with Broth. The Bean Sprouts, Fresh Basil, Fresh Cilantro, Sliced Green Onions, Sliced Yellow Onions, and Sauces are garnishes. Each individual may add as much or as little as they like table-side.
