  • 4 chicken thighs deboned and de-skinned. Chop roughly
  • 2 quarts stock (made from bones and skin of the thighs or supplemented from a stock made from a prior carcass.)

    Creating the Stock
  1. Place the bones and skin from the chicken thighs in roughly 3 cups water.
  2. You can add a fresh piece of ginger for this stock to provide that ginger flavor. If you do skip adding powdered ginger later
  3. Low boil roughly an hour
  4. Filter liquid.
    Soup Instructions
  1. Using a tablespoon coconut oil in a very hot pot brown up the chicken.
  2. Add the stock to de glaze the pot and the spices and bring back up to slow boil 5-10 minutes ensuring that if the chicken wasn't cook in the sear that it will be now.
  3. Add the bok Choy for 5-10 minutes at summer, just long enough to get some tenderness but not until they are mush.
  4. Serve with soy sauce to your taste. I use a splash and I use either GF tamari or soy
