This Bok Choy Chicken Garlic Soup is my go to soup for whenever I’m feeling run down.
Made with chicken, bok choy, garlic and ginger your sure to feel better after slurping this one.
So if you are wanting to fight off an impending cold or flu? Or start a cleanse and clear out the gunk from your system naturally.
Then this is the stuff you are going to want to make, feel free to add more garlic and ginger if you can handle it.
The onion, garlic and ginger all have amazing antibacterials properties in them and the more you have the better your sure to feel during the dreaded cold and flu season.
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.
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.
