Mealthy Tip

Never tried pho? It’s basically chicken noodle soup with fresh Vietnamese flavor! Adding the fennel and coriander seeds to the MultiPot on the saute setting allows the seeds to lightly toast in the oil. This brings out the natural oils and incredible flavor of these ingredients.

I had so much fun making this recipe! It was truly an experience. The pho broth was very authentic-tasting. I also loved all the toppings - the cilantro, basil, red onion, and chile pepper were very flavorful and the perfect addition to this dish.

Really good chicken pho! The broth was really delicious. I added a little sriracha to the broth because I like it spicy. Other than that I did not make any changes. All in all really flavorful.

So yummy! Pho is so good, I never thought I would learn how to make it on my own. The rice sticks are so light! I love this recipe and all the spices and flavors. The basil and cilantro give it a nice, fresh finish.

Very good pho. I've tried both of the recipes on this site and loved them both. This one required a couple more steps than the beef pho, but both very good and very easy recipes. I liked the basil, chile and lime in this recipe. Very good flavor, especially with Sriracha.

I couldn't find star anise, but I just added more fennel seeds to capture that licorice flavor. It's a little sweeter, and more mild but it's a close substitute. The only thing that was missing for me was the spice. I was able to remedy that by adding some sriracha to my bowl. I love a spicy broth!

This recipe gets you a much better pho broth than you'd think possible in such a short time. I know most phos take hours and hours to get the right flavors, which is why it has been one of those dishes I don't bother to attempt for the most part. My sons, however, LOVE pho. I think it's because I didn't put everything together and they get to assemble. Whatever, it was a fun and tasty dinner!

This was so good!! Used chicken broth instead of water for more flavor. Added siracha for an extra kick before serving! Yum!!!

I love pho & found this recipe to be fun, easy and absolutely delicious! (I think my Asian friends would even be impressed and so much less time consuming to make!) I also grow Thai Basil ~ which adds amazing flavor!!I I thought the chicken was a bit bland, I'm wondering if marinating the chicken first would help ~ any suggestions? (I will also try sriracha, I really appreciate the reviews and tips!)

This soup is absolutely delicious! Very easy recipe, the hardest part is finding the rice noodles. Worth the hunt and I will stock up on them because I will definitely make this soup again!

This was amazing! I have never made Pho before but the flavor was perfect in the broth. I would say it was better than even a restaurant. I followed the recipe exactly except for the green Chile pepper because I don’t like too much spice.

Extremely disappointed. When I make chicken broth I typically use 6 cups of water to a whole chicken in a pressure cooker. 4 thighs and 8 cups of water even with spices and healthy chunk of ginger?.....noodles, chicken and flavored water. Not just my comment but entire family. My one daughter went and added broth from purchased Collage Inn broth. Could be a good recipe? Maybe double the chicken at least.

This was very good, however we did have to add a lot more salt to the broth to make it edible. We all agreed the broth was pretty bland, but after adding the salt it was a 5 star meal.

Laura Norton says:

I’ve never even made soup before. This was like coming up to the plate and hitting a grand slam my first time in the majors. Instead of beans sprouts I used snow pea shoots. That was because my grocery store didn’t have any bean sprouts. I forgot to get coriander. Other than that I followed the whole recipe and it was superb.

Flavorless. I wasn’t expecting authentic tasting pho but I was at least expecting good/okay pho. The aroma is good and the flavors are there but the broth is extraordinarily weak. It’s like a hint of flavor but mostly just water. Oddly the chicken had a stronger flavor but was still not season well but good enough to filter the chicken out and eat it with something else. Overall someone needs to be willing to tinker with the seasoning proportions and get back to us with an update. The ingredients and potential is there.

Delicious and easy to make! I was trying to make enough for 8 servings but quickly realized it would not all fit. I still followed for 8 servings but was only able to do 12 cups of water and 5 thighs, but it still made enough for two nights. Definitely add more salt but that’s an easy adjustment.

This is really bland, not flavor at all. Next time i would reduce the water significantly and add salt not even fish sauce and sirracha could save this. Disappointed to the max
