There is two ways to serve this soup!

The differences are:

  • Then served it with a lemon wedge for added vitamin C.

The way you prepare it is completely up to you, both are delicious!

Yes, chicken soup is good for soothing both cold and flu symptoms.

The hot chicken broth helps break up the congestion and the salt can sooth a sore throat.  

Then with the addition of garlic, ginger, onions and spices you are going to be consuming a lot of feel good nutrients.

So if you are wanting to fight off an impending cold or flu?

Keep yourself hydrated with a hot pot of soup is good to help cleanse and clear out the gunk from your system naturally.

Which will amp up the nutrients as the onion, garlic and ginger all have amazing antibacterials properties.

The more you have the better your sure to feel during the dreaded cold and flu season.

Also in combination of this soup, be sure to add a Vitamin D supplement to your daily regime as well.

All these little yet big things can be of much help to getting you on the road to feeling better. 


  • RICE

I will prepare this on the stove top in a large batch and eat it all day long.

You can make this soup with chicken breasts, or you can also pick up a Rotisserie chicken and shred the chicken off the bird and boil the carcass to get the benefits from a bone broth soup.

For this soup, I just used the breasts however both methods are good to fight off a cold. 

Keep in mind if you are using a whole bird, you won’t need any extra chicken stock since you will be making a bone broth from the bird.

If you are using chicken breasts then you will definitely want to use chicken stock. I believe this soup can prevent colds and the flu and heal the body, because every time I prepare this soup I feel so much better the next day.

Now, I do not know about you but whenever I travel I tend to catch a cold!

Sucks I know, so beforehand I do my best to boost my immune system with supplements and eating healthy.

But sometimes no matter what you do, that pesky cold still comes on.

So a soup like this is sure to help the body to heal and feel better!

Bok Choy Chicken Garlic (Flu-Fighter) Soup

Ever since I started to incorporate this soup in my diet right around the time I travel, I manage to minimize or avoid the symptoms of the cold and for me that is great because I would rather be sick 24 hours versus 2 weeks.

Packed with immune boosting ingredients and nutrients, this soup is something you will definitely enjoy even when you’re not under the weather.

Feel free to add some egg noodles to it if you like. I hope you give it a try, and If you are not feeling well I hope this soup makes you feel a whole lot better.


  • Simply chop your ingredient’s first and saute the chicken first and once that has cooked.
  • Add in the chopped garlic and onion and ginger. You can use powder or fresh ingredients if you prefer.

  • Simmer on low heat for 15 minutes and serve hot!
