This recipe is a brilliant one to make in bulk and freeze in batches for those days where you "just can't be bothered". It'll taste great with shop-bought stock or with stock cubes, but even better if you've made the stock yourself. Check our our Slow Cooker Chicken Stock recipe if you're up for it!


  • 1 litre chicken stock - home made, shop bought or from stock cubes
  • 2 carrots, chopped
  • 3 leeks, sliced
  • 1 onion, sliced
  • 2 cloves garlic, crushed
  • 1 potato, peeled and cut into 2cm chunks
  • Salt and pepper to season
  • Chicken breast, grilled and shredded
  • Basil, to serve


  1. Grill the chicken breast until cooked through. Whilst it's grilling, in a pan fry the onion, leeks, carrots and potato in a little oil until browned. Add the garlic and cook for a further minute.
  2. Transfer the contents of your pan to the slow cooker along with your stock. Shred the cooked chicken breast with two forks and add to the slow cooker, then season well and stir. Cover and cook for 6-8 hours.
  3. Once cooked, blend to the desired consistency with a hand blender. If the soup is a little thin, thicken it by cooking on high with the lid off for approximately 30 minutes. Check the seasoning, and serve with a loaf of crusty bread and a sprinkling of basil.
