Step 1: Heat the pan, fry the garlic until golden, then fry the chicken and chicken bones until hardened.
Step 2: Put the coconut water in the pot, simmer with the chicken for 15-20 minutes. When the chicken is tender, taste and begin seasoning, then turn off the heat. Add a little chili oil if you wish to enhance the colour of the broth.
Step 3: Prepare another pot of boiling water, poach the noodles for 2 minutes, then take out and drain.
Step 4: Prepare chili, a bowl of fish sauce, lime and raw vegetables on the side. Put the raw vegetables in the bowl, add the poached noodles to the top, fill with the broth and the chicken, top with some roasted peanuts, chopped onions, and cilantro.
Step 5: When serving, squeeze some lime juice, break the rice crackers, mix well and enjoy.
