Recipe Ingredients for Chicken soup

2 Chicken Breast
8 oz whole wheat spirals
2 russet potatoes
160 g parsnip (1 9" long parsnip)
2 carrots
5 cloves of garlic
1 leek
1 onion
2 celery stalks
1/2 g bay leaves (2 leaves)
10 g flat leaf parsley (10 sprigs)
1 tbsp salt
1/2 tbsp pepper
4 litres of water

Recipe Directions for Chicken soup

  1. Prep the vegetables. Cut the parsnip into quarters, top and tail the carrots and cut in half.

  2. Cut the leek, celery and onion and garlic into big pieces and put into your biggest saucepan. Then add the chicken.

  3. Finally, cover in water and add the bay leaves, plus half of the parsley - stalks and all.

  4. Slowly bring the pan to boil and then turn right down. Leave just below a simmer for three hours.

  5. Drain all the stock into another saucepan. Slice the carrots and add to the stock, and finally add some chopped chicken back in.

  6. Then add a handful of chopped parsley and check the seasoning.

  7. I cook the pasta seperately then add it to the soup. This prevents the noodles from getting overcooked and clouding up the stock.
