Quick Chicken Broth

quick chicken broth

Last week my whole house was down for the count with the flu. It was brutal. But one thing that kept us going when we couldn’t stomach solid food was a nice, hot chicken broth. We usually like chicken soup while sick, but even that was too much to deal with during the worst of it, so broth it was. Served in a mug, it can be drunk like a cup of hot tea, making it much easier for a sick person to manage.

Putting it together is simple, and only takes a few ingredients –

  • 1 cup of hot chicken broth (home made is best, but store bought will do)
  • 1 small carrot, grated
  • 1 green onion, minced
  • 2-3 cloves of garlic, minced
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • fresh ginger, grated to taste (optional)

Mix all of the ingredients above and heat until warmed thoroughly. Serve in a large mug.
