This delicate yet rich-tasting soup is packed with good things, and makes a warming and sustaining main course. Chicken breasts are poached with vegetables, then rice is cooked in the well-flavoured stock. At the last minute, the soup is enriched with eggs and fresh lemon juice in traditional Greek fashion.

Tostadas comes from the Spanish word for toasted – in Mexico it refers to flat, crisply toasted corn tortillas, topped with all sorts of savoury things. Poached chicken with beans and salad is a favourite. A base layer of a thick mixture – often refried beans, but here a spicy pepper and tomato mixture – keeps everything together.

A tender chicken breast absorbs the essence of a seasoned poaching liquid, which keeps the meat succulent. Here, the chicken picks up the gentle onion flavour of leeks and the fresh taste of tarragon.
