Chicken Soup

It was a quiet weekend
I lost my voice

It sucks being sick at this time of year
when there's still lots to do in the garden.
In the meantime, I just need to focus on getting better.
Hopefully there would still be enough good weather
to last for me to do what I need to do around the garden.

I find that the best thing to eat
whilst my taste buds are shot
is a simple, comforting, no-frills Chicken Soup

Chicken Soup

4 boneless, skinless chicken thighs, cut into small cubes
2 cloves garlic, minced
1 small knob ginger , sliced
2 large carrots, diced
chestnut mushrooms, sliced
a couple of sprigs of coriander 
enough chicken broth to cover
(failing that, a good quality chicken stock cube + hot water will do the job nicely!)
light soy sauce
salt and black pepper, to taste

 Put the chicken in the pot with garlic, ginger, carrots and broth covering the chicken. 
Simmer for 20 minutes until the chicken is cooked. 
Add mushrooms and coriander sprigs.
Season the soup with soy sauce, salt and pepper.
Let the pot come back up to boiling point and let it cook for a minute or so.
