1 ounce cellophane noodles
1 cup boneless, skinless chicken breasts
1 Tbsp extra virgin olive oil
2 tsp minced garlic
2 tsp minced ginger
1/4 tsp red pepper flakes
4 cups chicken broth
2 Tbsp fish sauce
2 Tbsp fresh cilantro, chopped
2 Tbsp green onions
1 Tbsp fresh basil
1 cup bean sprouts

Soak noodles (bean or rice noodles) in very hot tap water. While noodles are soaking, cut chicken into thin julienne strips. Heat oil in a 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 the chicken is done-about 8 minutes. Drain the noodles and cut in 2" pieces if desired. Arrange noodles and fresh bean sprouts in the bottom of the bowls. Ladle soup over the top and sprinkle with cilantro, onion and basil. Serve with hoisin sauce if desired. May also add chili peppers and hot sauce to hoisin sauce to spice it up a little.
