A Bo bun for the chicken this is a recipe that I love to prepare, especially in summer, by its freshness, flavors, and travel memories that it evokes me. I actually almost 1 time per month during the beautiful days… It is a mixture of hot and cold really delicious, with a combination of vegetables, meat, marinated, noodles, not to mention the small spring rolls and a good sauce… For those who wants to, is the bo bun chicken can be enjoyed cold, just. In lunch box, for example, it is a treat !

I still have to tell you that I discovered during my trip in Vietnam call this recipe bo bun was not in fact correct… In fact, in vietnamese ‘bo’ means beef, so this is not really fair to call this dish bo bun with chicken…, we will catch up later… The real name would be rather Gà bun, but hey, I didn’t know that.

Do not take any fear in looking at the list of ingredients, this is not at all complicated and it is just enough to go in a grocery store, an asian, and you will find everything you need ! The result is well worth it !!
