Chicken Garlic Bean Soup

Look at this "clear soup"...simple and easy to cook and taste good. According to my mother and late grandmother, this is a very nutritious soup as the "red skin beans" has plentiful of nutrients that helps to strengthen our nephew-pharmacist would be asking - any scientific proof? Oops...if you are reading in KW, sori! Anyway, we have been drinking this great soup since small and far so good, guess it works..who knows, hahaha! No harm trying. Well, just in case you see this red skin bean in the local market, do give a try. The beans taste good when cooked with chicken and garlic and its very aromatic... good to try!

Have you seen these beans before and wondering how to cook it, try this Chicken Soup recipe...

All you need :

  • 2 pcs of chicken breast meat - chopped

  • some of the redskin beans

  • 1 clove of garlic

  • some peppercorn - optional

Simple Process :

  1. Boil 1.5 litres of water in a pot, drop in the chicken, garlic and beans over low heat for 40 minutes or till beans soften. Add salt to taste.

Happy Trying....
