Ginger Chicken Soup

This soup is best used to help fight off cold and flu.  Ginger is very warming and will help you sweat out the chills and fever.  Try it the next time you have a cold.  You will love it!

2 Tbls oil
3 cubed chicken breasts (raw)
4-5 inches Ginger root, slices thin
½ – 1 bundle Scallions to taste
2 cloves Garlic
1 package sliced mushrooms (remove from recipe if you have a lot of mucus)
2 Tbls Soy sauce
2 Tbls cider vinegar
Water as needed ~ 2 cups

Place oil in skillet and sauté chicken cubes until nearly cooked through. Add ginger root slices , scallions, mushroom, soy sauce, cider vinegar and water. Let simmer for 40 minutes up to 3 hours. Optionally, you can put all ingredients into a crock pot on low for 6 hours. The more the stew cooks, the more the flavors meld.

Serve as a soup or over rice, or for a grain free option over grated cauliflower. (Grate cauliflower with cheese grater and put into oven until warm. This works great as a rice substitute. )
