For all the patients of Dr. Jafary who have ever been recommended Chicken Soup when they have had a stomach ache, sore throat, cold or even the flu, understanding exactly how the soup was made was kind of a mystery.
So here it is in detail:
Dr. Jafary’s Chicken Soup
- 5 chicken legs
- Fresh Ginger, Peeled and Sliced, 2 inch piece
- Pepper to taste
- 2 large chicken bullion cubes or 4 small
- 4 quarts water
- 1 Tbsp Turmeric, ground
- 4 tablspoon chopped Cilantro or Parsley
- Fresh Lemon
Place chicken legs, sliced ginger, turmeric, pepper, bullion in a pan with the four quarts of water and bring to a boil and then reduce heat and simmer till chicken is soft and easy to remove from bone.
Remove chicken from soup and separate from bone and then return meat to the pot along with the cilantro or parsley. At this point, you can add any other herbs or seasonings you prefer as well. Return to boil. If you like a thickened soup, you can add cornstarch dissolved in an equal amount of cold water into the boiling soup. Typically 1 Tbsp per 1 quart of liquid. If you do not like it thickened, omit the cornstarch and just enjoy the broth. Drizzle with fresh squeezed lemon before serving.
So there it is, a simple chicken soup as recommended by Dr. Jafary for upper respiratory complaints, upset stomachs, and other conditions including autoimmune diseases.
