Ginger Chicken Soup

Ponzu sauce adds subtle saltiness to this Asian-inspired soup. Ponzu, a traditional Japanese sauce, is made with lemon juice or rice vinegar, soy sauce, and mirin.

  • 1 tablespoon dark sesame oil
  • 2 tablespoons finely chopped fresh peeled ginger
  • 6 garlic cloves, sliced
  • 2 cups diced cooked chicken breast
  • 4 cups chicken stock (such as Swanson)
  • 2 tablespoons ponzu sauce (such as Kikkoman)
  • 4 cups thinly sliced bok choy
  • 1 cup diagonally sliced green onions


1. Heat oil in a Dutch oven over medium-low heat. Add ginger and garlic; sauté 1 minute. Add chicken and next 3 ingredients. Bring to a boil over high heat. Reduce heat and simmer, uncovered, 5 minutes. Stir in green onions. Ladle soup evenly into 6 bowls.
