It is getting cold here in the Middle east particularly UAE, So to give us a bit of warmth and comfort, I decided to make boiled chicken soup.
Chicken in ginger soup is fast and easy, you just have to boil the ingredients all together and add the vegetables at a later stage.
This soup doesn't use cooking oil, just literally boiled then simmer. The garlic cloves are bashed and unpeeled to add more flavor to the dish.
For the Broth :
Whole chicken, cut in medium pieces
Ginger, 2 medium size, crushed
Bay leaves, 3 pieces
Black peppercorn, whole
Fish sauce, 3 Tbsp
Lemongrass stalk, optional
Celery stick, optional
Water, 10 -15 cups
Ground black pepper
Potatoes, 4 medium size
Green beans, top and tail
Bok choy leaves
Make a Broth by combining all the ingredients listed above except the fish sauce.
Lid on, Let boil then simmer for 20 - 25 minutes.
Add the potatoes, green beans and cabbage. Cook until tender.
Add the fish sauce and stir well.
Adjust the seasoning and add ground black pepper to taste.
It's a comforting dish that's filling this cold season. The broth is natural and delicious. It has a mild flavor, We usually pair it with rice and it's fantastic.
