My version of chicken soup is inspired by an authentic Filipino dish called "Chicken Tinola." It can be served as an appetizer or a main dish. What I love about this dish is that the ginger enhances the flavor of the soup. It is something that will surely give you a warm and comforting feeling even during the coldest weather. Enjoy this delicious and nutritious chicken in ginger broth with chayote and rice noodles at home!
