Canja de galinha, or simply canja, is a popular chicken soup of Portuguese and Brazilian cuisine.
The basic ingredients include chicken, onion, rice or massa pevide. Common flavoring ingredients are olive oil, mint and salt. It is usually accompanied by slices of Portuguese broa bread on the side for dipping. This is only a variation of this recipe.
Canja de galinha is often consumed by Portuguese when they get a cold. In Portugal, it is widely believed to help a person overcome colds, and digestive problems, among other mild forms of sickness. Since canja de galinha is very simple and light, it is often consumed before a main course meal as well as a late supper.
