Cure all Chicken Soup

Many cultures each have their version of a homemade chicken soup, So quick and easy to prepare this version is adapted from Indira Naidoo, don't be surprised at the amount of ginger in this recipe, I often recommend this to clients who are warding off a cold, the warmth in this broth makes it both medicinal, nourishing and so delicious.
