Chicken Pho Zucchini Noodle Soup

Chicken Pho Zucchini Noodle Soup

I’m really working on making more diverse recipes in terms of type of cuisine (ie by region.) It doesn’t come easily to me, since Italian-American cooking is my comfort blanket.

When Pacific Foods sent me three of their Soup Starters, my eyes lit up when I saw “Chicken Pho.” What an easy way to make a spiralized Vietnamese dish!

Pho = ‘fuh‘ phonetically, by the way.

Chicken Pho Zucchini Noodle Soup

Pacific Foods creates their Soup Starters to save people time and money by offering the broth for a tasty soup, already infused with the necessary flavors. Saving time and planning, especially during the holidays, is a win!

Directly from their site:

Have ingredients here and there but don’t know what to make? Let the inspiration flow with Pacific soup starters. Our bold soup bases capture all the depth and complexity of your favorite Vietnamese, Thai and Mexican classics. Just add a pinch of this and a little bit of that. 

Chicken Pho Zucchini Noodle Soup

They were right. This soup took NO time at all to make and the best part? This Chicken Pho base is gluten-free, dairy-free, corn-free, soy-free, wheat-free, yeast-free…. and organic!

The ingredients? Organic Chicken Broth (Water, Organic Chicken, Organic Spices, Organic Garlic Powder, Organic Onion Powder), Organic Cane Sugar, Sea Salt, Organic Lemon Juice, Organic Spice Extracts, Organic Lime Oil and Organic Rosemary Extract.

Chicken Pho Zucchini Noodle Soup

Making this soup was sinfully easy. I brought the soup base to a boil, added in some scallions, cilantro, pepper, chicken, and zucchini noodles. I let the noodles soften (took about 2 minutes) and then I slurped it up!

This soup is light, refreshing and filling. I combatted the limey-ness of the Soup Starter base with some water to create the perfect pho flavoring. It’s low-cal, low-carb and low-fat.

I can’t wait to experiment with their other Soup Starters!

Do you have any other time saving tricks when cooking?

Sounds delicious, Ali! Note: Your ingredients list omits the zucchini. Oops! I wanted to print the recipe to a PDF file, so I could save it on my iPad, but the "Print" button isn't responding. Guess I'll try copying and pasting. I may try this with some Better Than Buoillon chicken base. I know it won't have the same flavor as the soup starter, but I keep BTB on hand, now that I've started making soup in the crockpot on the weekends.
Susan - sorry to hear you're having difficulties! The recipe is adjusted. if you have an iPhone, you can mark it as a favorite in my new iOS application, available in the iTunes store: https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/inspiralized/id741826886?mt=8. Hope that helps!
Amanda says:
Am I missing something, but are the directions and ingredient list now omitted? I even downloaded the app and am having the same problem. I love this soup and wanted to make it again this week - but I do need the recipe to do so! :)

buttoni says:
This looks so good I think I'll make it for lunch today. I have a cooked chicken breast in the fridge to use up. Mmmm. Can't wait to try this!
Thanks for the sweet comment - glad you like the recipe!
buttoni says:
I DID make this for lunch, but added some garlic, ginger and a splash of fish sauce. I also used a regular bell pepper with a little sriracha sauce for "heat". Man, was it ever good! Thanks for the inspiration to try a dish I've always wanted to try.
Buttoni - so glad you liked it!
Nat says:
This recipe looks delicious, but the Pho base isn't sold in Australia! I will use regular chicken stock, but what else would you suggest adding?
Natalie - sorry to hear that! You should add lime juice, garlic powder, salt and onion powder! That should help.
Nat says:
Thanks! Can't wait to give it a go :)
Kori says:
To make it truly like a real pho, if you begin with chicken stock, try adding star anise, fennel, coriander, cinnamon, sugar and salt.

you know what keeps me up at night? 🥺 the gut-wrenching mom guilt from worrying that this time is going to fly by (it is!) and I’m going to look back and wish I had made more one on one time with each my kids when they wanted it! it’s so hard to separate my time, and I’ll admit that I’m not great at finding ways and the right moments to do it. mamas out there who have 2 or more, what do you do to get more individual time with each of your kids?

maybe I’m putting too much pressure of myself in this season of life, but I can’t help feeling like I’m failing and I’m missing out on this adorable age! #proofofmom #motherhood #thisismotherhood #toddlermom
