I had caught flu these past few days and what’s better to soothe the sore throat and blocked nose than a bowl of steamy chicken soup 🙂
My usual staples for chicken soup are: chicken breast, onion, garlic, celery, carrot, and potato. Sometimes I add extra spices, like cloves, cinnamon, bay leaves, kaffir lime leaves, ginger, or ground coriander seed (depends on what I have on hand). This time I only added bay leaves, kaffir lime leaves and some ground ginger, I think the kaffir lime leaves really freshen the soup with the slight tangy fragrance.
So dear readers, what do you usually put into your chicken soup?
