Here’s a fantastic chicken soup recipe to thaw the chill of winter or bring a little sunshine to a rainy afternoon. This chunky chicken and potato soup recipe allows the soft textures of the humble spud to meld with the fantastic flavours of chicken, parsley, thyme and garlic. It’s called chunky for a reason – it’s filling and warming but incredibly easy to make!

In a frying pan, cook the chicken thighs in the olive oil until golden.

In a medium/large saucepan cook the leeks and garlic over a low heat in the butter until soft, about 7 minutes.

Add the plain flour and stir. Pour in the chicken stock, add the potatoes and bring to a simmer. Pop the chicken in and cook for about 10 minutes, remove the chicken and shred with a fork. Keep the soup simmering away whilst you work on the chicken. Add the chicken back to the pan with the fresh thyme and season with salt and milled pepper.

Serve with fresh parsley and fresh bread.

"As you all loved the potato salad I posted a few weeks ago I thought I should share another lovely potato recipe for summer salads and feasts. This one is bursting with flavour and it’s coronation inspired sauce is just a dream. The sauce is made of a delicious blend of spices, from curry powder to garam masala, cinnamon and cayenne, which are mixed with lemon juice, tamari and coconut. The tender potatoes are then tossed with the sauce and scattered with juicy chunks of mango, flaked almonds and raisins. I love this served with big bowls of quinoa and veggies for a beautiful summer meal with friends."
