Chicken Soup For The Soul

Hi Everyone,

Today we have a special treat: Chicken Soup For The Soul, a recipe by Amber Murley.

(Serves 4)


  • 1 large chicken breast
  • 1 litre chicken stock
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 cup water (approx.)
  • 1 medium carrot
  • 1 medium zucchini
  • 2 cloves of crushed/chopped garlic
  • 1 small onion
  • 1 cob of corn
  • 1 cup of dry soup mix (or barley)
  • 1 tablespoon soy sauce
  • 2 teaspoons sesame oil
  • A pinch of salt and some cracked pepper


  1. Dice the onion, garlic, and carrot.
  2.  In a large pot sauté the onion, garlic, and carrot using olive oil.
  3. Add the chicken stock, soy sauce, sesame oil, water, and soup mix, and bring to the boil.
  4. Add the chicken breast and simmer on a low heat until the chicken is tender and will break apart. You can also take it out, chop it up, and then return it to the stock.
  5. Add zucchini and corn (cut off the cob) closer to the end as these don’t take too long to cook.
  6. Add the salt and pepper.
  7. Serve with garlic bread if you wish.


Thanks Amber for this fantastic recipe!
