|Chicken, Couscous & Lentil Soup|
Low fat, healthy and so so simple to make ...
- Start by thinly slicing a leek, grating a large carrot and a zucchini and thickly slice two sticks of celery. Soft fry all of these with a couple of cloves of crushed garlic for about 1 minute in a large saucepan.
- Then add 1 tin of crushed tomatoes, 1 tin of Lentils (drained), 2 tablespoons of sweet chilli sauce and then submerge a whole chicken under 2.5 litres of chicken stock... bring this to the boil and then simmer for 1 hour until the chicken is cooked through.
- Turn off the heat and remove the chicken... skin and bone it and return the best shredded bits back to the pot along with 1/2 cup of couscous and a large handful of fresh chopped parsley... simmer this gently for a few minutes until the couscous is tender and serve.
