Our family loves this soup. It seems to help fight colds or at least cold symptoms, but we like it anytime, not just when we're sick!

"I made it without spices since I don't like spices food. It turned out really good, though next time I may add some more ginger and garlic to add some flavor. Easier than I thought it would be to make."

Delicious!! All I added was some minced garlic that I wanted to use up. Increased all quantities, as I had extra chicken thighs in the packsge.
