    i made an outstanding chicken soup yesterday for ds. no recipe, just made up from my head:

    ingredients:
    4 chicken legs
    4 potatoes finely chopped (into cubes is fine)
    a few celery sticks finely chopped
    4 carrots finely chopped
    4 leeks chopped
    1 large onion diced
    2 cloves of garlic finely chopped
    2 liters of salt reduced chicken stock
    pepper to taste
    some fresh herbs: i used parsley and chives from the garden but you could exclude these if it's too hard to source
    thickened cream

    first brown the chicken legs in olive oil for about 10 mins
    then sweat the leeks, onion down in butter til they're soft. add the carrots, celery and potato and sweat down further then return the chicken legs to the pot, season with pepper and add the herbs then pour over the stock. bring to a rolling boil then summer for a good hour. i had the lid half on so it reduced down a bit but not too much.

    once it's all cooked, remove the legs from the soup and using a knife & fork, pick the meat off and shred it up a bit. return meat to soup and chuck the bones.

    allow all this to cool then stir through 300ml thickened cream.

    i blitzed mine with a handheld whizzer to break it down a bit for ds so mine is more like a thick creamy soup. but you can leave it otherwise if this isn't your thing. ds loved it and i had it for lunch too and it was yummy! enjoy

    TC, that sounds delicious!

    Mine is my nan's recipe:
    1kg chicken thighs on the bone, no skin
    A couple of stalks of celery including leaves
    1 largish onion
    One or 2 potatos
    1 swede
    1 parsnip
    2 or 3 carrots
    Some bay leaves
    Fresh parsley
    Chicken stock
    2 minute noodles
    Can of corn kernels
    1 or 2 cloves of garlic

    Put chicken, sliced onion, bay leaves, garlic in large stock pot, cover with water and cook until chicken is falling off bone. Meanwhile peel and dice all veg. Remove thighs, take meat off, discard bones and put meat back in pot.
    Throw in all veg. Cook til tender.
    Add corn, noodles and parsely. Remove bay leaves.

    Done.

    My no effort chicken noodle soup starts with buying a BBQ chicken! Basically just boil/simmer water and a couple of stock cubes to taste, add the shredded chicken, throw in some frozen corn kernels and some diced carrots/beans/any other veggie you have on hand. Add a dash of sweet chilli sauce and /or oyster sauce for extra seasoning if desired. Either cook up some pasta/noodles separately and drain and add to the soup at the end or you can add the dried pasta directly to the soup to cook if you don't mind the soup being a little cloudy. I just use spaghetti/linguine broken up into smaller pieces or 2 minute noodles do the job as well.

    Fry 2 garlic cloves, 1 leek sliced, onion and ginger in some olive oil
    Add lots of chopped veg... I use carrot, broccolini, bok choy and zucchini.

    Add stock and two cups of water and 4 Mary lands. Once cooked remove Chicken and pull from bone. Put back into soup with a pack of kantong thin rice noodles and tablespoon of soy sauce!!

    So good!!
