1 tbs finely grated fresh ginger

1 stalk lemongrass, white part only, bruised & chopped

2 small chicken breast fillets, trimmed

1Combine the consommé or stock, cinnamon, star anise, ginger, lemongrass and chicken in a large saucepan. Bring to a simmer over medium heat. Reduce heat to low, cook for 15-20 minutes or until chicken is cooked through. Transfer the chicken to a board, set aside for 5 minutes then shred.

3Strain the stock mixture, discard the solids and return stock to the pan. Bring to boil. Add the mushrooms, lime juice and fish sauce.

4Divide the chicken between serving bowls. Ladle over the stock, top with green onions, chilli, bean sprouts and mint. Serve.
