Chicken Healing Soup with Ginger & Coriander

Olive Oil & Essential Oil......
This Gluten Free ~ Dairy Free healing soup recipe is for all of my sickie friends. The Yucky stuff is going around like crazy, so if you know someone who was is down with the cold or respiratory flu, you would be considered an angel for bringing this soup to them.
