Green Tea Chicken Soup Recipe

December 18, 2017

If your idea of comfort food is a big bowl of chicken soup, this meal from Primal Kitchen founder Mark Sisson will give you all the cozy feels. The recipe is pretty traditional at first glance, but adds an unexpected step. Steep a few green tea bags in the chicken broth and you’ll layer in extra herbal flavor and some antioxidants, too. And since the whole pot is ready in just 30 minutes, it’s quick enough for any day of the week.
