Grilled Chicken Vermicelli Bowls

We are borderline obsessed with Vietnamese food since we moved a few years ago, and I mostly blame our local Vietnamese restaurant for it. I used to be a die-hard ramen girl, but this place changed my mind and now I’m all about the Pho, spring rolls, and those crispy Chicken Rice Plates!

This Grilled Vietnamese Chicken Vermicelli Bowl is very loosely inspired by the Chicken Vermicelli bowls we get at that restaurant. I say loosely because we marinated the chicken in Bachan’s, which is 100% NOT Vietnamese, but the rest of the bowl is pretty close. If you’re looking for “authentic”, this is not the place. But it IS delicious, and I think you’ll love it!
