Share recipe


  • 1 large onion, peeled and roughly chopped
  • 1 carrots, peeled and roughly chopped
  • 1 garlic
  • 1 leek, peeled and roughly chopped
  • 2 Sprigs thyme
  • 1 red chilli
  • 2 bay leaves
  • 1 pinch table salt
  • 1 ground black pepper
  • 1 chicken
  • 2 sticks green celery, roughly chopped
  • 1 tbsp white peppercorns
  • 1 Sprig flat leaved parsely


Step 1

Roast the whole chicken and split into portions, reserving about 200g for the soup. Place the chicken bones, vegetables, herbs and spices into a large pot, cover with cold water, and bring to the boil.

Step 2

Skim off any foam from the top and add 1 litre of cold water. Bring back to the boil, and then reduce to a simmer.

Step 3

After 2 hours of simmering, strain all of the liquid through a fine strainer. Add a touch of salt and allow to cool.

Step 4

Place the cooked carrots from the pot into shallow bowls, and tear in the chicken pieces. Ladle over the liquid and drizzle in some olive oil.
