Chicken Ginger Soup For The Soul


The other day I decided to make a Chicken Ginger Soup for the Soul for a family member who has been sick and is really run down. The Chicken Ginger Garlic Vegetable Soup is for everyone – its a great Detox for the body, great for cold nights, great for a pick-me-up-when-I-am-down-and-need-more-energy, great for chest infections, head colds, sore throats, sore ears –  Its basically a soup that you can eat when you need to give more back to your body.

And it was perfect  timing because as soon a I had made the Soup our Older son came down with a sore throat, glands up and a left ear infection. I was expecting him to get sick because he had been pushing himself too hard on the return trip home from his Deployment – they had cut his section down by half the team members but had expected the work load to stay the same!!!

Chicken Ginger Soup For The Soul ::

Ingredients ::

Chicken Breast

2 Onions

Olive Oil, Salt and Pepper

Garlic – the more cloves the better

Ginger – the more the better


Sweet Potato




Corn {we no longer eat corn}



Frozen Veggies {any that you have left over in the freezer}

Soup Veggies Pack – that you can pick up as a pack from any shop/veggie shop

Chicken Ginger Soup for the Soul


Method ::

Slice thinly and Brown The Onion in a LARGE saucepan. Add lots of Salt

Add the Chicken Breast – don’t worry about cutting the chicken up because it will break down with cooking the soup. Make sure its cooked through before adding any other ingredients

Slice the Celery and Broccoli, add to the soup with lots of water

Grate the Carrots, Potatoes, Zucchini, Sweet Potato, Pumpkin. Add to the Soup

Slice any veggies that you don’t want to grate – slice to small pieces.

Crush the garlic and add to the soup mixture. Add Pepper for taste.

Add the Tin of Corn, or fresh Corn on the Cob {which can be cut off when cooked!} {or leave out like we now do}

Add the Grated Ginger. You can add as much ginger as you want to this soup. I usually buy a big chunk of Ginger and grate the whole lot into it!

Make sure the Soup is covered in LOTS of Filtered Water.

*** IMPORTANT *****

Let it cook on low for at least two hours. Keep checking the Chicken Ginger Soup For The Soul to make sure that it is not sticking to the bottom of the Saucepan, add more water if needed.

The Soup is great for little ones  who don’t like to eat veggies because they are grated into the Chicken and taste amazing.  Its a Soup that is easy to make, can be eaten with Garlic Bread or Crusty Bread, can be frozen for next time or gobbled up in one go!!!

After making a double batch {one for our boys and another for a family member} I was whisked off for a night on the town in Sydney, but that’s a post for another time 🙂
