Recipe


Ingredients

  • 500g chicken thigh, sliced into small chunks
  • 1 red onion, finely sliced
  • 1½ cups finely chopped celery
  • 1½ cups finely chopped carrots
  • 2L organic chicken stock
  • 5 cloves garlic, minced
  • 2 tbsp finely grated ginger
  • 2 tsp finely grated turmeric (or 2 tsp dried turmeric if you prefer)
  • 1 lemon, juiced
  • Generous pinch sea salt

Method


  • Add the chicken and a dash of olive oil to a large saucepan over medium-high heat. Cook for 5-6 mins, or until lightly browned and just cooked through. Remove from the pan and slice into even smaller chunks. Set aside.
  • Return the saucepan to the heat. Add the finely chopped celery, carrots and onion, and another dash of olive oil on medium heat. Let it cook, stirring occasionally, for 5-6 mins or until the vegetables soften.
  • Add your stock to the saucepan, together with the garlic, ginger and turmeric. Bring to a gentle simmer and cook for 5-10 mins or until vegetables soften further. Add in the chicken chunks and lemon juice. Cook for a further 2-3 mins, or until everything is combined and the chicken has cooked through. Season to taste with sea salt. Serve immediately.
  • Tip: Boost the immune system using this recipe by adding as much garlic as you can tolerate! Garlic is a fantastic antimicrobial, antifungal and immune booster.
