Soup forms an important diet for the sick and also good for children.  Chicken contains an amino acid which is released when boiled, this in turn helps thin the mucus in the lungs, this is the reason a hot chicken soup is an all time favorite for many centuries to treat a cold. If you want to boost your immune system then chicken soup is the right choice. Chicken soup can be made by boiling the chicken with the bones and adding the right spices like pepper, ginger, onion and garlic to enhance the flavour and taste.
