Notes

Use 2 chicken stock cubes dissolved in 1 litre (4 cups) water instead of bought stock. Try chopped, peeled, uncooked prawns. Use shredded leftover barbecued or roast chicken. This recipe is made in one pan, so it cuts clean-up time, too. Leftovers: Soup will thicken on standing. Add a little water when reheating.
