Jazzy lemon chicken and orzo soup for a spring fever is the best medicine, even for your pollen allergies. This soup will help clear your sinuses and give you a deep sense of happiness.
Do you think that is overstating it?
Healing Chicken Broth
1 soup hen
4 stalks of lemon grass bashed up or split open
8 cloves of garlic smashed
3 red chili peppers whole
1 peeled and roughly chopped knob of ginger
2 stalks of celery
3 to 4 liters of water
sea salt and fresh pepper
Add the ingredients to a large pot. Bring to a boil and skim off the gunk.
Reduce heat to a simmer and let bubble until the chicken easily tears from the bone around 1 to 1 1/2 hours.
Separate the solids from the liquids and rinse your pan. Find all the good chicken parts and chop into generous bite size pieces. Remove fat and strain the liquid so you get a nice clear broth.
