Chinese Herbal Chicken Soup

Tonifying herbs are often cooked into soup because of their pleasant taste. The chicken in the soup brings out the qi tonifying and blood nourishing properties of the herbs. The soup can be used for someone recovering from a serious illness or on a weekly basis as a general tonic. It is a nice way to incorporate Chinese herbs into one’s diet.
