Here’s a fantastic chicken soup recipe to thaw the chill of winter or bring a little sunshine to a rainy afternoon. This chunky chicken and potato soup recipe allows the soft textures of the humble spud to meld with the fantastic flavours of chicken, parsley, thyme and garlic. It’s called chunky for a reason – it’s filling and warming but incredibly easy to make!

  1. In a frying pan, cook the chicken in the oil until golden.
  2. In a medium/large saucepan cook the leeks and garlic over a low heat in the butter until soft, about 7 minutes.
  3. Stir in the flour. Add the chicken stock and potatoes. Bring to a simmer.  Add the chicken and cook for about 10 minutes, remove the chicken and shred with a fork. Continue to simmer the stock, return the chicken to the pan with the fresh thyme and season.
  4. Serve with freshly chopped parsley and crusty bread.
