Coconut Curry Chicken Soup with Brown Rice August 18, 2012

Jamie says: I’m fighting off a cold. And there’s nothing better than lots of rest, 2000 mg of vitamin C, a positive attitude, and some hot chicken soup. (I have to thank my Dad for reminding me of the soup part of the equation.)

Coconut Curry Chicken Soup with Brown Rice

I added lots of spices for a tasty Indian flavor (and antioxidants).

Not your average chicken soup…

With the addition of mangoes, apples, coconut, and raisins this soup became a naturally sweet bowl of flavor.

There are mangoes, apples, coconut, and raisins in this soup for natural sweetness
