One time when my mom prepared this dish for a big group of Hmong friends and relatives, they all raved how it reminded them of when they used to eat pho all the time at the street markets back in Laos.

Freshly killed chickens are more chewy than say a Foster’s chicken but they are a lot more healthy and tasty.
