Chicken soup for the soul🍲

January 15, 2019


It's cold, everyone has colds and flu's....time for chicken soup.  I have a chicken noodle soup that I like to make but I thought I would try this Healthyish recipe.  It has ginger, garlic and sweet potatoes.  I made it this morning and its good!

Give it a try!!


















                                                 Feel Better Chicken Soup



·         ¾ lb. skinless, boneless chicken thighs

·         ⅓ cup jasmine rice, rinsed

·         4 garlic cloves, thinly sliced

·         1 2" piece ginger, peeled, thinly sliced

·         Kosher salt

·         2 small sweet potatoes, unpeeled, cut into ½"-thick rounds

·         1 stalk celery chopped

·         1 Tbsp. fresh lemon juice

·         1 Tbsp. soy sauce

·         ½ bunch cilantro, or Italian flat leaf parsley, coarsely chopped

·         Freshly ground black pepper


Recipe Preparation
  • Bring chicken, rice, garlic, ginger, celery and 5 cups water to a boil in a large saucepan. Add a big pinch of salt. Reduce heat to medium-low and simmer, uncovered and stirring occasionally, until rice has swelled and chicken is firm, 10–12 minutes.

  • Add potatoes to pan and cook over medium-low heat, still uncovered and stirring occasionally, until soup is thickened and potatoes and rice are tender, 15–20 minutes longer. Transfer chicken to a bowl and shred with 2 forks, then return to pot. Stir in lemon juice and soy sauce; taste soup and season with salt if needed.  Divide soup among bowls.

  • Top with cilantro or parsley and lots of black pepper.
