    MNLisaB's Note:

    This is my quick version of chicken pho, which is a fragrant, hearty Vietnamese inspired soup that can be eaten any time of the year. The broth is made fragrant with spices, ginger, garlic and veggies, which you can choose to keep, or toss. The spices/ginger/garlic can be contained in cheesecloth, or a tea infuser. This can be made low carb by omitting the noodles.

      YUM! This was absolutely delicious. My whole family loved it. I used only chicken, because I didn't have any shrimp, and I put a 3rd piece of star anise in because we love the broth really flavorful. Thank you for a great recipe!
