Qpc Papaya Soup


2 wholes chicken breast without the skin
2 honey dried dates
1 cube chicken bullion
1 litre wate


Wash papaya, remove skin and seeds. Slice half lengthwise and then cut across into chunks. Blanch the chicken in boiling water before putting into the pot. Put all the rest of the ingredients into the pot. Turn on high heat and let it boil for 5 mins without covering the pot. Turn down the heat to low and cover the port and simmer for 2 hours. Add salt to taste and remove the chicken breast before serving.


When I was on confinement, my mum made this soup for me at least twice a week. The Chinese believe that drinking more payaya soup will invoke higher production of breast milk. While the effectiveness of the chicken and papaya soup has never been verified by evidence based any scientific research, chicken is a good source of protein, and papayas are packed with minerals and vitamins A, C and E. These two main ingredients combined provide a healthy and nutritious meal for anyone, even more so for a breastfeeding mum. I love it because it is so delicious. Idon’t only drink the soup but I eat all the papayas as well.
