Vietnamese Chicken Pho Recipe 786x1024


  • 6 cups chicken stock
  • 6 oz cooked, shredded chicken
  • 6 oz dried rice noodles
  • 2 bok choy, quartered
  • 1 bunch Chinese broccoli
  • 1 long red chili
  • 2 scallions (green part only if Low FODMAP)
  • Salt
  • Pepper


  • Prepare your rice noodles. Place them in a large bowl and cover with warm water. Allow to soften, then drain and set aside.
  • Place the chicken stock and shredded chicken in a large pot and bring to a simmer. Quickly add the bok choy and Chinese broccoli into the stock to blanch them, then take the pot off the heat.

To Serve

  • Divide the noodles between 4 large soup bowls. Pour over the stock mixture, ensuring each bowl has equal amounts of chicken and vegetables. Garnish with chopped chili and scallions. Season with salt and pepper as required. Serve immediately.


  • Bok choy and Chinese broccoli can be found in Asian supermarkets.

  • If making your own chicken stock, retain the chicken meat from the stock and shred it for your pho recipe.
