Hearty and warming, Slimming World’s chicken soup is really simple to make. Packed full of flavours, this is comfort food at its best. It’s a guilt-free lunch or light dinner that takes under an hour to rustle up. Serve with crusty bread.
25g margarine, such as Flora Light
1 large white onion, peeled and chopped
25g plain flour
900ml chicken stock
1 leek, trimmed and chopped
¼ cabbage, chopped
½ small cauliflower, chopped
250g potatoes, peeled and chopped
100ml skimmed milk
225g cooked skinless and boneless chicken breast, chopped
chopped fresh chives, to garnish
Melt the margarine in a saucepan then stir in the onions. Add the flour and gradually pour in the stock.
Add the vegetables and simmer for 30 minutes until cooked through.
Place the soup in a blender or food processor and blend until smooth, then pass through a fine sieve.
Season to taste, then add the milk and chopped chicken.
Warm for 10 minutes to heat through and serve sprinkled with chives.
