  • 3 tablespoons avocado oil
  • 3 cloves garlic, thinly sliced
  • 1 small shallot, peeled and thinly sliced
  • 1 tablespoon avocado oil
  • 1 teaspoon coriander seeds
  • 2 star anise
  • 1 stalk lemongrass, trimmed and crushed
  • 1 inch piece of fresh ginger root, peeled and thinly sliced
  • 1 teaspoon ground white pepper
  • 4 cups Pacific Foods® Organic Chicken Bone Broth, Unsalted
  • 2 cups water
  • 1 1/2 pounds boneless, skinless chicken breast
  • 2 packages uncooked shirataki noodles (optional)
  • 2 green onion, thinly sliced
  • 2 serrano chili pepper, thinly sliced
  • 1 cup mung bean sprouts
  • 1 lime, cut into wedges
  • 2 tablespoons cilantro
  • 2 tablespoons mint


  • Step 1

    First, make the fried shallots and garlic. Heat first amount of avocado oil in a 5-quart Dutch oven over medium low heat. Once hot fry the shallot and garlic until crispy, about 3 minutes. Watch carefully so that they do not burn. Use a slotted spoon to remove the shallot and garlic to a plate reserving the oil in the Dutch oven. 

  • Step 2

    Add the second amount of avocado oil to the reserved oil in the Dutch oven. Turn the heat to medium. Once hot, add the coriander and star anise to the pot. Cook for 1 minute then add in the lemongrass, ginger and white pepper. Cook another minute then pour in the broth and water. Bring to a simmer. Once simmering, add the chicken to the pot, cover and cook 25 minutes. 

  • Step 3

    While the chicken is simmering, prepare the noodles according to the package directions.  Remove the cooked chicken and shred. Taste the soup for salt and add more if needed. Place the prepared shirataki noodles in bowls and top with the chicken. Use a slotted spoon to strain out the soup solids then ladle the broth over the chicken and noodles. Top with toppings and serve.
