The Perfect Chicken Soup

It’s a question for the ages, but most will agree that the bones (sorry!) of an amazing chicken soup is always a good quality stock. You can either make this yourself or save a good few hours using our slow-cooked organic bone broth and enjoy the benefits of slow-food, fast (and the perfect chicken soup every time)! We've added courgette and peas to this recipe for extra greens, but you can keep it pure - or add whatever you have in the fridge for extra colour and flavour. This recipe can be easily adapted for those following a low FODMAP diet by removing the onion and celery and using our Organic Low FODMAP Free-Range Chicken Bone Broth.
