Wellness Chicken Soup

Wellness Chicken Soup is the perfect comforting meal to eat when you’re sick – or to boost your immune system when you aren’t! It’s delicious, rich broth is made from heaping amounts of ginger (an anti-inflammatory and anti-oxidant), garlic (to boost your immune system), and parsley (also boosts your immune system and is an anti-inflammatory). I’ve also packed it full of easy-to-digest ingredients like chicken, carrots, and brown rice that will fill you up but won’t weigh you down. This will become your new go-to chicken soup to make for those you love.

In a large stock pot, heat oil over medium-high heat until shimmering. Add onion and carrots, and cook for 5-7 minutes, stirring occasionally, until onion is translucent.

Add ginger and garlic; cook for 2 minutes.

4-2

Add chicken broth, chicken thighs, rice, and salt; stir. Bring to a boil, then cover and turn heat to low. Cook for 30 minutes, until chicken and rice are tender.

5-2

Transfer chicken to a cutting board, then use two forks to shred meat (discard bones).

6-2

Stir shredded chicken and parsley into the soup, and cook 1 more minute, until heated through. Season with salt and pepper.
