Slow cooker chicken pho


5 cups low-sodium chicken broth
1 tablespoon packed light brown sugar
1 1/2 tablespoon fish sauce
6 whole dried star anise pieces (or 1/2 teaspoon Chinese 5-spice powder)
4 whole cloves
1-inch piece of fresh ginger, peeled and sliced
1 cinnamon stick
1 large bone-in, skinless chicken breast (about 1 1/4 pounds)

cilantro leaves (for garnish)
lime wedges (for garnish)
garlic chile sauce or Sriracha (for garnish)

Whisk the broth, sugar, fish sauce, anise (or powder), cloves, ginger and cinnamon in the crock of a slow cooker. Add the chicken, meat side down (add a little extra broth of water if the chicken isn’t quite covered). Cover and cook on LOW for 6-7 hours.

Using tongs, remove the chicken from the crock and set it aside. Add the noodles and bok choy to the crock, re-cover and cook on HIGH for 30 minutes. Meanwhile, shred the chicken, removing any small bones. When the noodles finish cooking, return the chicken to the crock and stir. Serve in bowls and top with bean sprouts, basil, cilantro, a squeeze of lime juice and some hot sauce.

This recipe isn’t very good as it stands. Do it in the crock pot up until the point where you add the pasta. I highly recommend cooking the pasta separately and adding it to the chicken and sauce. It could use a garnish of sliced celery too.

  • 8 oz cream cheese
  • 1 cup shredded sharp cheddar
  • 1 tablespoon corn starch + 1 tablespoon water
  • 16 oz linguine noodles
  • Chopped cilantro for garnish (optional)
  1. Place chicken, broth, ¼ cup buffalo sauce, and seasonings in crock
  2. Top with cream cheese and shredded cheese
  3. Cover and cook on high for 4 hours or low for 8
  4. When chicken is fully cooked remove to separate bowl and shred with two forks
  5. Add remaining ¼ cup buffalo sauce to chicken and toss to coat
  6. Set aside chicken
  7. Whisk together corn starch and water and add to crock
  8. Use a whisk and stir until cheese and cream cheese is all combined and smooth
