This soup isn’t suitable for freezing because it’s made with cooked chicken which is heated again in teh cooking. If it were to be frozen, it would mean heating it three times which is against food safety recommendations
- Melt the butter in a pan, add the vegetables and cook over a medium heat for 10-15 mins until they start to soften but not colour.
- Pour the stock into the pan, add the thyme leaves and bring to the boil. Reduce the heat and simmer the soup for 15 minutes. Add the chicken to the pan and cook for a further 5 mins to heat through.
- Remove the pan from the heat, pour half the soup into the bowl of a food processor and purée it, then pour it back into the pan and mix with the chunky soup. Serve the soup with croutons and garnished with a sprig of parsley.
