1.5 litres of vegetable stock, 2 chopped carrots, 1 chopped leek, 1 onion quartered, 2 crushed cloves of garlic, 2 bay leaves, 500g of skinless / boneless chicken thighs, 2 chopped stalks of celery, 1 teaspoon of dried parsley and seasoning. slow cook this for 6-8 hours.
When you’re ready to eat the soup, strain the stock in to a pan, remove and reserve the chicken then discard the stock vegetables.
Next, in your saucepan, simmer the stock on a medium to high heat and add 2 chopped carrots and 1 chopped leek. leave to simmer for 5-6 minutes then add 100g of sweetcorn, 100g of vermicelli noodles and the chicken reserved from earlier.
