Slow Cooker Chicken Pho

Making chicken pho in a slow cooker is a quick and simple way to obtain rich and fragrant broth without spending hours tending to the pot. Because the slow cooker allows for a longer simmering period, the tastes of the broth are enhanced, resulting in a more tender and tasty chicken.

Using a slow cooker also frees up the stove and allows for hands-off cooking, making it an excellent choice for busy weeknights or meal prep.
