OK – Before y’all drag me through the mud, I actually have a traditional Vietnamese chicken pho recipe on my blog. Use that recipe if you believe Costco rotisserie pho is sacrilege.
So why involve Costco?
I created this recipe because I hate to see good things go to waste.
I was required to do a 5-day quarantine (thanks Omicron!) and decided to do it with a rotisserie chicken from Costco. I figured the amount of protein would last me days and I could use it to make multiple dishes!
In those 5 days, I made so many dishes with this single source of protein. It was the gift that kept on giving.
I made the following dishes with my beloved Costco chicken baby:
- Avocado Toast with Ciabatta Bread (game-changer right hurr)
- Copycat Del Taco Chicken Soft Tacos – I used parmesan cheese instead of Mexican cheese because this was all I had in the fridge. And OMG game changer times 1,000!
- Chicken Quesadillas with guacamole and lime crema
- Chicken with rice and sliced cucumber topped with a tangy cilantro fish sauce
I cannot thank you enough, Costco! 🙏
So I ate all the meat and was left with the carcass. What’s a girl to do?
My first thought immediately went to, “Let’s make pho!”
Pho is a Vietnamese noodle soup that is typically made with beef bones, but you can also use chicken to make this super savory and delicious soup.

What I found was this recipe is super easy to make and is a great way to use up the entirety of your Costco rotisserie chicken.
Look ma, no waste!

Costco Rotisserie Chicken Pho Recipe
This recipe was easier than I imagined. Just throw the ingredients (including the drippings, fat and all) in a pot and wait for it to cook. Your home will smell very aromatic in the meantime.
If you can’t find the veggies mentioned in my recipe, feel free to use any veggies you want! I’ve found that sliced broccoli and carrots also go very well with the soup. You’ll just have to steam them prior to adding it to the soup.
Tofu or thinly sliced steak is also a great protein if you’re out of chicken. We used thinly sliced rib-eye from Costco and it was delicious! The thinly sliced rib eye was leftovers from our hot pot nights.
And if you don’t have pho noodles, opt for vermicelli (rice noodles often used in vermicelli bowls and spring rolls), ramen noodles, udon noodles, or even pasta.
And yes, you can totally just drink the soup like a bone broth.
None of what we’ve mentioned is what goes into “traditional pho,” but we’re making pho with a rotisserie chicken carcass here.
So, we highly encourage you to enjoy all the possibilities with this recipe!
- 1 Costco Rotisserie Chicken Carcass
