10-Minute Instant Chicken Pho Soup
Ingredients for 3 servings
- 1 (white) onion, chopped
- 3-inch piece ginger, peeled and chopped
- 10 cups low sodium chicken broth
- 2 tablespoons coconut sugar
- 2 tablespoons coriander seeds
- 1 tablespoon (about 4) cloves
- 5 cardamom pods, partially cracked
- 3 star anise
- 2 cinnamon sticks
- 3-inch piece of lemongrass (OPTIONAL)
- 2 tablespoons fish sauce
- low sodium soy sauce to taste (or salt)
- 1 1/4 lb chicken breast
- Garnish (not included in macros)
- rice noodles (for a hearty serving)
- veggies noodles such as zucchini and carrot (for LOW CARB)
- bean sprouts
- green onion
- lime juice
Set your multifunction cooker on Saute on HIGH heat (or set a Dutch oven pot on HIGH). Once hot, add ginger and onion. Sear until fragrant and dark spots appear along the edges, about 3 minutes. DO NOT use oil. Then turn the setting off and allow the pot to slightly cool.
Add the remaining ingredients MINUS the chicken breast.
Pressure Cook on HIGH for 10 minutes. If using a Dutch oven pot, simmer on low for 2 – 3 hours, ensuring the lid is on tight.
At the end of the cooking cycle, release the pressure. Then add the chicken breasts and cook for 10 – 15 minutes on LOW, until the chicken is cooked through.
Remove the chicken and pull it apart or cut it against the grain. Also, strain the hot broth, removing all of the seasoning.
Add your choice of noodles to a bowl, then add chicken, the broth and your choice of garnish.
