Chinese chicken soup with chestnut

Chestnut chicken soup is a soup I often cooked, plus some nourishing Chinese herbal, the sweetness of chestnut and the deliciousness of chicken soup make me feel that life is so beautiful.

There is no winter in Guangdong province  and summer is very long. Sweating will lose a lot of nutrients, so Cantonese like to drink soup to nourish their bodies. Cantonese soup added Chinese herbal has been cooked for hours, and nutrition is finally concentrated in the soup.  Drinking soup in Guangdong has become a habit, all kinds of soup are available in restaurants in Guangdong.

Cantonese drink soup almost every day. It is difficult for people who come from other places of China not to be affected by Cantonese soup culture. Cantonese also know what soup to drink in each season and what Chinese herbal to add in the soup.
