How to Make It

1. Step
Place the rice noodles in a large heatproof bowl. Cover with warm water and soak for 20 minutes, until softened.
2. Step
While the noodles are soaking, heat a large pot over medium-high heat. Toast the black peppercorns, coriander seeds, and star anise pods for 2 minutes, until fragrant.
3. Step
While the seeds are toasting, peel the ginger and cut into pieces. Trim the ends off the green onions, then chop 5 inches off the bases and save the remaining green tops for later.
4. Step
Add the ginger and green onion bases to the pot and cook for 2 minutes, or until fragrant.
5. Step
Add the water, chicken broth, and chicken breasts. Increase the heat to high, cover, and bring to a simmer. Cook for 5 more minutes, then check the chicken every minute until cooked through. Remove from the heat.
6. Step
While the broth heats up, thinly slice the green onion tops. Cut the lime into wedges. Thinly slice the jalapeño.
7. Step
After 20 minutes of soaking, drain the rice noodles, then return to the bowl.
8. Step
Remove the chicken from the broth.
9. Step
Strain the broth over the noodles. Pour the noodles and broth back into the pot over high heat, then add the fish sauce. Cover and cook for 3 minutes.
10. Step
Shred the chicken.
11. Step
Divide the noodles between four serving bowls and top with the shredded chicken, jalapeño, bean sprouts, and Thai basil. Ladle the hot pho broth over the noodles. Add a squeeze of lime, green onions, and any other favorite toppings.
12. Step
Enjoy!
