Slow-Cooker Chicken Pho

March/April 2013

Your rating: None Average: 3.5 (159 votes)

Chicken Pho, a classic Vietnamese soup, is a perfect recipe for a slow cooker. The chicken and seasonings of star anise, cloves and ginger simmer all day in the crock pot, welcoming you home with an alluring aroma. Serve with the essential garnishes for pho soup—fresh herbs, bean sprouts, chiles and lime—and let everyone top their own. Serve chile-garlic sauce for those who want more heat.

Don't add those noodles to the crock pot!

Pro tip: do NOT add the noodles and bok choy to the crock pot on high for a half-hour. The noodles will soak up ALL your broth, resulting in a big slimy mess. The bok choy will turn grey and disgusting. Everything was fine up until that step, but it was almost inedible after that. Here's what you need to do: Place the noodles into a pot of hot water until they're slightly pliable, but still stiff (yet bendy). Then remove. Add these noodles and the fresh bok choy to your serving bowl and THEN ladle the hot pho broth and chicken over the top. The bok choy will remain crisp and the noodles won't disintegrate into a soggy mess. Serve with the trimmings, and don't forget Sriracha and Hoisin sauce!

Broth is decent

Chicken was sawdust

The chicken was way over cooked. The chicken should have been poached separately and added when the bok choy is added. We were not that impressed and I probably won't make it again.

Nice broth flavor

Fantastic Flavor! And the house smelled wonderul as well. I did strain the broth upon removing the spices which was not necessary, but did make the broth most aesthetically pleasing.
