Chicken soup for the soul

Bear loves soup,  I love it and I always have done, and I also love cooking it. I suppose it's alsoo very encouraging as my husband appreciates it so much - he really is my biggest fan :-)

Here's tonight's creation, which I cooked for 2.5 hours, in order to get the best flavour and to get the chicken to shred nicely like this.  These are the ingredients I used:

Free range chicken, onions, garlic, leeks, butternut squash, carrots,  freshly shelled green peas, bay leaves, spinach leaves, brown lentils, lemons, chicken stock and a dash of single cream

I am going to try this it is funny everyone has their own chicken soup recipe. I have one which is similar but is slightly Thai in style I add noodles, lots of coriander and some chilli great for when you are feeling unwell. Have a fun week.

Inge, yes they do, but the great thing about soup is that you cld more or less chuck in any veg you have at home, fresh or frozen. I season mine with salt pepper paprika and dried chili flakes. Thanks for reading and commenting on my blog!
