Bok Choy Lemon Chicken Noodle Soup – a good way to use cooked chicken – comfort food!


Chicken Noodle Soup does seem to have medicinal qualities for me – and for many others – although I am not sure that is scientific but it sure comforts me. This recipe takes a slightly different angle on it – and is delicious. We grow our own bok choy, ginger, onion, and love cooking with all of it!
