In a large pot, bring water to a boil and cook the rice noodles according to package instructions; drain and set aside.
In a separate large pot, add the shredded chicken, ginger and minced garlic. Saute for 2 minutes. Whisk in the chicken broth, fish and hoisin sauce. Bring to a boil; lower heat and simmer for 15 minutes.
Serve right away with the rice noodles. Top with bean sprouts, herbs, limes and bean sprouts or any optional sides, as you wish.
