Scarlet's chicken soup

I went off to Asda yesterday to buy some boneless, skinless chicken thighs, much nicer than breast meat in my opinion, far more flavour and less prone to drying out(and very reasonably priced at £2.49 for six compared with Waitrose charging £4.99 for exactly the same thing!) only to find they had sold out( because they were on special offer) So i ended up purchasing the boned and skinned ones. So after De-boning and skinning myself and batching up for the freezer i realised i had rather allot of bones etc left over. SOUP! I thought.
So out came my pressure cooker. Now i cannot tell you how good these gadgets are, they are so worth their weight in gold. Only 7 Min's for soup and 20 Min's for chick peas for starters, need i say more.

So here is the recipe, this is all i had in the bottom of the fridge that was going to work with this soup. had there been a carrot i would have added that too. As it was the soup was delish.

Left over chicken bones, skin, meat left on bone etc
1 large potato cubed
half and onion chopped
2 cloves of garlic
2 stalks of celery, leaves inc if they have them
one stock cube, chicken or veg
salt and pepper
enough water to cover the above.
little bit of oil

Fry off chopped onions and roughly chopped garlic and celery

Add chicken till sealed

Add water, stock potato and bring to boil, simmer for 7 Min's in your pressure cooker or 20-30 Min's with standard saucepan

Remove bones and skin. Pick the bones for any meat( i find rubber gloves handy for this task) and leave this in the soup.

Blend the soup until smooth

Season to taste.

Eat and enjoy!

Suitable for freezing
