Healing power of chicken broth

Chicken broths No Comments

Chicken brothFor ages people were convinced of the chicken broth healing power. They say it mobilizes our host defenses, helps struggling against colds and tones up the whole organism. Well, modern medicine has all necessary remedies nowadays, but when somebody of my family catches cold, I always cook chicken broth, just like my grandmother used to do when I was a child. And I have to say it really works. Goldish and flavored chicken broth warms the body from inside, giving a feeling of satiety at one time.

Whether you sense the first signs of a chill, or it’s just dark and cold outside, you’re sad and tired, then it’s a high time to cook a chicken broth. It won’t require much effort and time. If you cook chicken broth for a baby or for an ill man, you should know that it must be absolutely clear and contain no spices. I’m going to give you various broth recipes that can be of use in all cases: you can use them as a main dish or for further soup cooking.

Delicate chicken meat helps us to stay healthy


I’ve never been a great meat-lover and prefer to cook healthy courses: fresh salads, tasty soups and fatless garnishes. For a short period I’ve even tried vegetarian cooking for my whole family, but I could hardly deny myself chicken meat. It always seemed to be the tastiest one for me, though it’s not the only reason why I like chicken dishes. Dietitians say chicken meat is one of the most important constituents of healthy nutrition. It’s rich in protein, amino acids, calcipherol, aneurin, phosphorus, magnesium and zinc and has little saturated fat, what makes it easily assimilated.

There are many chicken recipes in my thick cookbook. Some of them are light and dietetic, the others – spicy and richer in calories. But nevertheless chicken meat yields only to fish meat in minimal cholesterol content. Once, after the birth of my second child I had problems with overweight, but I didn’t want to start one of those popular wearisome diets. My doctor recommended me to eat more cooked chicken and less high-calorie products like hamburgers, fried pork and doughnuts. He gave me a piece of good advice because soon I felt fit again. In this time I’ve gathered a thick pile of different chicken recipes and here I’d like to share with you my favorite ones.
