Immune Boosting Chicken Soup

  • Medium




Chicken soup is great when you’re unwell. Research suggests that a bowl of chicken and vegetable soup can slow the speed at which neutrophils move around your body1. Neutrophils are a type of white blood cell and part of the immune system, protecting your body from infection. When the neutrophils move slowly, there’s a greater chance of them becoming more concentrated in the areas of your body that need the most healing. Studies have shown chicken soup to be particularly helpful in reducing symptoms in upper respiratory system infections.

This lovely soup contains garlic and ginger (known for their antiviral qualities). The recipe uses cooked chicken, but you can use raw chicken and cook it in the paste mix. Add about 30 minutes to the cooking time. Enjoy!







To make the spice paste, tip all the paste ingredients into a food processor, then add 4 tbsp of the coconut milk and whizz to form a paste.


Heat the oil in a large pan, add the spice paste and cook for 1–2 mins. Add the rest of the coconut milk, stock and fish sauce. Bring to the boil then gently simmer for 7–10 mins.


Add the cooked chicken to the pan and cook for 3-4 mins. Tip in the broccoli and the sugar snap peas and cooking for another 5 minutes until the vegetables are cooked, but not soft.

Pour into bowls and sprinkle with the chopped spring onions and serve.


Note: You can whizz the soup with a hand blender or in a liquidizer if you like a smooth soup.
