"A spicy addition to a classic soup. I normally make this with a whole chicken and let it cook for an hour, remove the meat, and return the bones for another hour on their own, chicken breasts are used here for simplicity." — Coulter

This recipe rocks! I've had the flu for a few days now and made this recipe earlier today. It is so good, and the ginger is great for the tummy problems. I doubled the recipe and made it with a whole chicken instead of breasts, I think it gives much better flavor to the broth.
Besides that, I only added more celery because I love it.
Thanks for the great recipe!
Did not particularly care for the combination of ginger with thyme and rosemary. Will not make again.
Awesome, Awesome, Awesome – only thing I changed was no kohlrabi and chicken broth instead of water.
Absolutly love this recipe. Thanks!
Absolutely loved this soup! I added shredded cabbage, thighs instead of breasts and four kaffir lime leaves. If I had cold symptoms, they're gone now.
As far as chicken soup goes, this is one of the best I've ever tasted. Normally I feel like chicken soup is either much too bland and watery, or way too salty. This one isn't salty at all but instead has a nice, fairly powerful ginger and rosemary flavor. The recipe as written makes a huge batch of soup. My husband and I each had a bowl for dinner, my baby had a baby-sized bowl, I froze half of the remaining batch in ice cube trays to serve my son for lunch in the future, and there is still plenty for at least a day or two of lunches for me and my husband.
I had trouble finding the kohlrabi so I substituted it with parsnips. Nevertheless, everything else was the same and it came out great! Me and my boyfriend have been battling a cold all week, it instantly brought some color back to our faces! AWESOME!!
This is a 5-star recipe as written - very comforting during a cold! I cut the recipe back to 6 servings when I made it and added a tablespoon of honey, which I thought complimented the other ingredients really nicely :)
