3/4 lb. cooked chicken
3 c. water
1 (14oz) can chicken broth
1 (10 1/2 oz) condensed chicken broth
2 T. soy sauce
dash of white wine
1 T. minced fresh ginger
1 tsp. sage
1/2 tsp. each salt and pepper
1 T. hot chili garlic sauce
4 oz. Asian rice sticks
1/2 c. julienned carrots
1 small red onion sliced
2 c. mung bean sprouts

1/2 c. chopped cilantro
1/2 c. chopped basil
2 jalapeno peppers diced
Sriracha hot chili sauce
Hoisin sauce

1. Combine water, chicken broths, soy sauce, wine, ginger, sage, pepper and hot chili garlic sauce in a saucepan. Boil, then reduce to a simmer covered 30 min. Place rice sticks in a large bowl and cover with hot water, let stand until pliable, about 20 min.

2. Drain noodles. Place noodles, carrots, onion in simmering broth; cook 2-3 min. or until noodles are tender.

3. To serve, lift noodles from soup with fork and place in individual bowls and top with cooked chicken. Ladle broth over noodles. Add sprouts, cilantro, lime, basil, jalapeno, Sriracha and hoisin sauce to taste.

Personal Notes:
Personal Notes:
The chicken can be substituted with sirloin steak strips and the chicken broth with beef broth. Then it's Pho Bo which is Beef Noodle Soup.
This soup is great for a cold, hang over or internal cleansing. Be prepared to sweat! And, if you're like Jim... don't be too far from the bathroom!
