Down-home Comfort: Chicken Soup

Over the weekend, I was hit with an unruly cold/ sinus infection (not glamorous, I know.) I still find it amazing how traditional home remedies like sleep and chicken soup always seem to be the best solutions. A Filipino variant to chicken soup is Lúgaw. It’s made with chicken stock, chicken on the bone, rice (as opposed to American noodle varieties,) and has good-for-you ingredients like toasted garlic, fresh strips of ginger, and saffron.
