Vietnamese Phó  (Vietnamese Noodle Soup)

The ultimate comfort food, this soup is delicate but filling, fragrant and satisfying. Phó means "your own bowl," something that you garnish and eat individually, not to be shared, as most other Vietnamese dishes customarily are.

Ingredients
150 gms rice noodles sticks or any rice noodle at all. You can also use normal egg noodles.
8 cups chicken (or veg) stock
I tbsp ginger garlic paste
1 tbs lime juice
2-3 tbs fish sauce (available all over)
2-3 boneless chicken breasts
For garnishing: ¼ cup green onions, sliced; ½ cup basil;2cups fresh beansprouts; 6 lime slices; finely sliced jalapeno peppers;2-3 Tablespoons fish sauce

Method
Season chicken breasts with salt and pepper and lime juice and reserve. Place water, ginger garlic paste and chicken (or veg )stock in a large pot and bring to a boil. Add chicken breasts and cook for exactly 12 mins by which time they will turn white and opaque. Remove and reserve.

Add noodles to boiling stock and allow to cook through. Meanwhile slice up chicken and arrange green onions, basil, bean sprouts, chillies, and lime slices on a platter. When ready to serve, distribute the noodles evenly among deep bowls, top with chicken and the hot broth, garnish and serve immediately.
