Instant Pot Chicken Pho
I can still remember the first time that I tasted Chicken Pho. I was walking through an international market in a large city and saw a long line of people waiting to order from one of the booths.
I was curious about what was so good about this restaurant that so many people were willing to spend over a half an hour in line.
Then I noticed everyone carrying large bowls of what looked like chicken soup topped with bean sprouts and basil leaves.
I finally asked a patron that was still patiently standing in line what everyone was ordering, and that is when I first heard the words Chicken Pho.
Because I had the day off work, I filed in line behind everyone else to see what the fuss was all about. And I am sure glad that I did!!!
Chicken Pho is now the first thing I order when I head to a Vietnamese restaurant. Lucky for me, I found a restaurant that was only a few miles away from my house that served the absolute most delicious Pho around.
For years I would head there for a quick lunch. Whenever I wasn’t feeling well, this was my new go-to chicken noodle soup meal.
That was until one day, the family that owned the restaurant decided to close up shop and move to a different city.
I was heartbroken, literally heartbroken.
I was fortunate enough to have gotten to know the family very well and learned a lot about making Chicken Pho from the best.
After a few attempts and several hours spent over a hot pot on the stove, I was able to replicate the recipe.
However, because it took hours to prepare, I rarely made it.
That was until I found another love, my 6 quart duo Instant Pot! Because my Instant Pot had saved me so much time with other recipes, I decided to give Instant Pot Chicken Pho a try.
Making it in the Instant Pot saved me so much time and the flavors tasted like it has been cooking all day! So Instant Pot Chicken Pho has been a recipe that I now make 3 or 4 times a month!
