Chinese herbal soups, like this Chinese Herbal Lung Nourishing Soup, can look a little intimidating to make as most will struggle to figure out which herbs to use. What I would normally do is just ask my mom or your elderly Chinese aunties suggestions and they’d be more than happy to share a recipe with you. And (if available in your area), just walk into your local Chinese medical halls/shops and ask the shopkeeper to recommend you something.
For this recipe, if you are having a little cough or issues with the throat and lungs, you can give this Chinese herbal lung nourishing soup a try. However, this Chinese soup is also suitable for everyday drinking to supplement to your diet seeing that it is very nutritional and healthy. I was also told that this soup is also good for your digestive system and boosts your immunity.
Chinese Herbal Lung Nourishing Soup: Good for the Lungs
By the way, not all Chinese soups with medicinal value (as some people believe) tastes bad. Just boiling these herbal ingredients together already tastes great – giving off a mild sweet flavour to the soup. However, you can also make it savoury with pork or chicken. Adding the protein gives it that umami-sweet-savoury combination to the soup which is really delicious too.

For this recipe, I used chicken to make a Chinese herbal chicken soup that is nourishing to your respiratory system and may help alleviate some of your cough or throat issues. It is really easy to make, especially if you have a slow cooker, its nearly fuss free.
