 This soup is a firm favorite of Cully's daughter Aoibheann.  She loves nothing more than coming in from the park and having a warming bowl of Chicken soup.

You will need

100g Cooked Chicken torn up into little bits
100g Onion
130g Potato
240g Carrot
30g Celery
50g Leek
45g Butter
800g Water
1 litre Vegetable of Chicken Stock
40g Cream
Salt and Pepper

Melt the butter in a saucepan with a tight fitting lid. Sweat the onions, celery and leek until soft but not coloured. Add potato and carrot. Season with salt and pepper. Sweat for another five minutes or so, until the vegetable are beginning to soften, add the stock and simmer until veg are cooked through. Liquidise the soup, add the cream and chicken and then liquidise again, but not too much as it will make it go grainy. Pop back on the stove and heat through. Serve it with a blob of cream and some fresh chopped herbs or maybe a few croutons.
