Like many of you, I’m sure, I’ve been feeling pretty under the weather lately with that change in weather cold which seems to do the rounds this time every year. First it was a sore throat, then a sniffle, then the pathetic shivers and shakes, and now a super-fun cough which wakes me up in the night. A day and a half off work and in bed and I’m still feeling pretty miserable. Especially when getting out of bed when it’s 4 degrees outside and it’s Monday and time to get ready for work….
Not to worry, help is at hand! Nothing helps you feel better than a big bowl of homemade soup. This is the traditional chicken, with just enough cheats to make it doable when you’re feeling at your worst.
1 clove garlic
10-12 new potatoes
2.5 litres of stock, I used 3 Knorr stock cubes and plenty of water because who had time to make their own when they’re ill?
2 tsp parsley
A grating of nutmeg
1 tsp thyme
Good pinch salt
A few cracks of black pepper
Leftover roast chicken, chopped or shredded
