A Prescription for Chicken Soup

‘Tis the season for flu and colds, and scientists now agree that good old chicken soup does have properties than can ease the misery. Liquids are always good for a cold, but hot broth is especially soothing. Hounds like to add even more heat with chilis and ginger; any ingredient to make the nose run is a good thing!

Rick_V swears by the magical combination of Thai ingredients: Chilis, lemongrass, garlic, galangal, kaffir lime, and fish sauce, in a chili paste-infused broth. Now, that will clear your sinuses! It may not be a cure, but you’ll feel better and time will do the rest.

The Mayo Clinic chimes in.
