Healthy Orange Chicken Soup

Looking for a new twist on a classic chicken soup recipe? Today’s Orange Chicken Soup with Indian Spices is for you!

Onion, ginger, and garlic are the classic flavor trio in Indian cuisine and its the base of this soup, which takes on a pleasing spiciness when finished with cumin, coriander, and chilli. A squeeze of orange juice adds a touch of natural sweetness.

We started with classic chicken soup – but added orange juice to the broth for that tangy sweetness. The fresh orange juices add a wonderful brightness to the soup – reminiscent of an asian-inspired broth, and fresh cilantro on top are the perfect finishing touch.

This soup is prepared with turmeric, ginger, cumin and pepper which has immunity factor,especially this soup is best for cold and flu.

And also i have added Orange juice which can help support a strong immune system by providing a variety of vitamins and nutrients.
