Chicken soup with all the goodies (Serves 2)

May 31, 2017


This is one of two versions of chicken soup I make. I love the texture and flavour of this soup, and its perfect for them cold nights in wanting pure comfort, but yet keeping it healthy.



  • 1 x pack of freekeh (I use Merchant Gourmet)

  • 1 x large carrot (chopped)

  • 1 x leek (chopped)

  • 1 x onion (chopped)

  • 2 x garlic cloves

  • Pinch of chilli

  • 2 x large chicken breasts (left whole)

  • 100g of Kale

  • 1.5 litres of vegetable stock

  • Salt and Pepper to taste


  1. In a pot, fry off the onions, leeks, garlic and chilli until soft

  2. Add the carrots and cook for 5 minutes

  3. Add the stock and once you have brought it to the boil add the chicken breast and allow to simmer for 30 minutes

  4. Remove the chicken (making sure it is cooked through) and with two forks pull and break up the chicken.  i like some stringy and some chunks of chicken

  5. Return the chicken to the pan and add the kale for about 5 minutes until tender

  6. Add seasoning to taste and then sit back and enjoy in a large soup bowl
