  1. Place the chicken stock in a large pot. Mix in the chicken thighs, aduki beans, wild rice, onions and garlic. Season with sage, thyme and rosemary. Bring to the boil, reduce heat and cook 1 hour.
  2. Remove chicken from the pot, shred with two forks and set aside.
  3. Stir the sweet potato into the pot. Continue cooking about 5 minutes, until sweet potato is slightly tender. Mix in the courgettes and chicory. Continue cooking 15 minutes.
  4. Return the shredded chicken to the pot. Cook until heated through. Increase the amount of stock if the soup seems too thick.


Aduki beans are also known as adzuki beans, you can purchase them in Chinese/Oriental speciality stores.

enjoyable but I think I should have added a little salt, my stock wasn't salty enough to do the job..... - 16 Sep 2011
