Chicken, Spinach and Leek Soup with Shaved Parmesan
Heat the olive oil in a large saucepan and add the onion, leek and carrots with a good pinch of salt. Cover and cook until tender. Add the garlic, tarragon, bay leaves and chicken and cook for 3 minutes. Add the stock, season and simmer for about 8 minutes or until the chicken is cooked through. Add the spinach and stir to wilt.
To serve: Ladle the soup into warm bowls. Top with shaved Parmesan, lemon zest, a drizzle of olive oil and a grind of pepper. Serves 4–6
Chicken and tarragon is a great match and this is a very quick, light and flavoursome soup.
