Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • Combine all ingredients except noodles in a large pot. Bring to a simmer over medium-high heat and simmer until chicken is cooked through, about 12 minutes. Transfer chicken to a plate; when cool enough to handle, shred meat from bones and discard bones. Add meat to soup.

  • Cook noodles according to package directions, then add to soup. Add more fish sauce, if desired, and serve with lime halves for squeezing.

Very tasty! I was nervous to make this, but was pleasantly surprised by the delicious, tangy flavors. I used 2 jalapeños, boneless chicken thighs, and I did not have the Kaffir lime leaf available at my grocery. I minced the ginger and used 4 oz. rice noodles. Would recommend maybe some fresh cilantro for serving. Loved how easy this recipe was.
