Why does almost every culture use chicken soup to recover from an illness? Is there something special about it?

    The sacrifice of the chicken wards off any further evil from taking over

    In Indian culture when you are sick you almost always avoid meat till you get better.

      Not in every part of India. In my home state mildly spiced chicken curry/broth & rice/toast is a very common food for patients.

      In Indian culture, you are given a healthy dose of "I told you not to do this" until you magically recover.

      There is no such thing called Indian culture. India is many countries.

    It’s bland, easy on the stomach, and has enough sodium/hydration to replenish what you’re losing in snot/sweat/puke.
