Step by Step Method
Soak noodles in very hot tap water (cook noodles if you use rice vermicelli or flat rice noodles)
While noodles are soaking, cut chicken into thin julienne strips.
Heat oil in deep skillet over medium-high heat; add chicken; garlic, ginger, and pepper flakes.
Cook, stirring for 1 minute; then add broth and fish sauce and bring to a boil.
Reduce heat to medium and simmer until chicken is done, about 8 minutes.
Drain noodles and cut into short pieces, about 1-1 1/2 inches long.
Arrange noodles in bottom of bowls; ladle soup over the top and sprinkle with cilantro, onion, and basil.
- Common table condiments for this are sriracha, sambal, and/or hoisin sauce.
- Serve with a lime wedge if you like.
