This soup is flavorful, aromatic, and is super healthy to boot!

Ginger is one of the healthiest spices you can use in cooking! It helps combat nausea, aids in pain relief and digestion, and contains powerful anti-diabetic properties. Our Asian Chicken and Ginger Soup harnesses the nutritional power of ginger into a tasty, Asian-inspired chicken soup. We’ve used bone-in chicken not only because it creates a rich flavor, but also because it mitigates the side-effects of colds and the flu. We also included brown jasmine rice because it adds a wonderful nutty flavor and aroma, as well as high amounts of vitamins and fiber.

This soup is flavorful, aromatic, and is super healthy to boot! It’s the perfect dish to warm you up on a cold night or when you’re feeling under the weather.

  1. Sounds yummy! Do the chicken thighs really need to cook one hour? I think they’d be overdone!

    1. Carol, We cooked them according to the instructions. It will depend on the temperature used so I recommend testing for doneness after 30 mimnutes.
