Garlic Ginger Chicken Soup

I’ve been in stores this week where either shelves are empty of cleaning supplies, or purchases are limited.  I see carts filled with supplies like a Nor-Easter, had a bastard child with a Polar Vortex and was going to deliver a blizzard from the last ice age..

PANIC, SIMPLE OUT RIGHT PANIC.

My thoughts are take some SIMPLE precautions, eat well, eat healthy, eat things that will support your immune system.

I will make no claims, I do no want the FDA, AMA, and other three letter agencies, hounding me. But in many cultures garlic and ginger are use for their healing powers. And Chicken?, Who does not feel better after a nice hot bowl of homemade chicken soup.

I'll shred the chicken into the broth, maybe pass with a side of cilantro for that herby taste.
For  a more filling meal, use this to cook ramen, add a tipple of soy sauce, a drop or two of toasted sesame oil, maybe some sambol..
