  • Rub the chicken with some salt and rinse well inside out to remove the bad poutry smell. Into its cavity add 2 slices of ginger and 1 spring onion.
  • Add the chicken into a large pot fill with enough water to cover. Add 1 tbsp salt and one peeled onion. Bring the water to a boil, then skim off the foam if any. Then cover the lid and lower the heat.
  • Grill 1 onion (cut in half or quarters), 2 ginger slices, 3 whole shallots and corriander roots until they slightly charred on the outside. Then insert them all into a tea filter or wrap in a piece of cheese cloth. Then tie it up and throw into the soup pot.
  • Season the sliced the chicken internal organs with salt/fish sauce, pepper, chicken stock and minced shallot. Set aside. (Optional)
  • When the chicken is cooked through (after 15 minutes to an hour depending on what kind of chicken that you have), remove it from the soup, let cool and shred the meat into thin strips. Slightly season the shredded chicken with some salt and pepper and the lime leaf threads. You can return the bones to the soup broth and cook further for more hearty broth. Season the broth to your taste with more salt, sugar and/or chicken stock.
  • Heat some oil in a pan, fry 3 thinly sliced shallots until golden brown. Keep the heat on medium and immediately remove the shallot slices from the oil when they just turn golden. Set aside Then add the chicken internal organs into the oil and stir-fry until cooked.
  • To assemble the bowl, add a handful of the softened glass noodle to a serving bowl. Top with the seasoned shredded chicken, the fried shallots and some chopped Vietnamese mint. Ladle the hot soup over. Add some stir-fried chicken organs if you like. Serve with a lime wedge, some hot pepper slices and extra fish sauce if needed.
