There’s nothing more comforting than a steaming hot bowl of tasty soup but making it in a large batch and freezing it isn’t always appealing. This Spicy Chicken Soup is the perfect portion size for one.
Ingredients (serves one)
1 1/2 cups chicken stock
1/2 small onion, cut into four
1/2 celery stalk, finely chopped
1/2 teaspoon grated lemon zest
1 tomato, peeled, seeded and diced
Small sprig of mint
1 small chicken breast
2 tablespoons long grain rice
Freshly ground salt and black pepper to taste
Poach the chicken breast by poring the chicken stock, onion, celery, lemon zest, tomato and mint and bringing to the boil. Reduce to a simmer and cook the chicken for 20 minutes. Remove the chicken from the pot and once cool, thinly slice. Remove the mint sprig from the pot and add the rice to the pan and simmer for a further 20-25 minutes. Once rice is tender, add the chicken and season to taste. Serve hot.
