Ingredients for Healthy Chicken, Leek and Sweet Potato Soup Recipe (5 portions): 

1 heaped tsp coconut oil
100g / 1 large onion
200g leeks
3-4 cloves garlic
70g / 2 stalks celery
130g carrot
175g sweet potato (raw)
3 chicken stock cubes
390g / 3 med chicken fillets (I used frozen raw chicken)
2 tbsp double cream
1.5 litres boiling water


In a large pan or stock pot, melt the coconut oil and add in the onions.
Fry until browned, then add in the leeks and cook until softened.
Add in the garlic (chopped), salt and pepper.
Add in 500ml boiling water followed by the stock cubes and mix to dissolve.
Add another 500ml boiling water, then the celery, carrots and sweet potato.
Add a final 500ml boiling water and bring to a simmer.
Add in the chicken fillets (whole).  If you are using frozen chicken, ensure it is raw so that you are able to freeze some of the soup later.
Simmer for 20 minutes and then remove the chicken.
Shred or chop the chicken into small pieces and set aside.
Blend the soup with the hand blender (if using a food processor you will need to let the soup cool before blending).
Add in the double cream and then check the seasoning.
Return the chicken to the pan and mix before serving.
