Pho Roast Chicken



Author Notes: This pho roast chicken is my spin on Vietnamese pho ga: it’s juicy and aromatic. This roast chicken has all the flavours you expect in a steaming bowl of pho ga but its simplified into a delicious roast chicken. If you love pho ga, you’ll love this recipe. It’s super simple; you just need to rub the chicken with the seasoned butter and let it roast in the oven, no need to base or turn the chicken. For this roast chicken, I also made mashed potatoes and chicken gravy infused with coriander seeds, star anise, shallots and ginger. www.remakewithtea.com Remake With Tea
