    This is my version of cock-a-leekie that uses chicken thighs. I like to add fresh thyme and parsley.

    A plain and simple recipe for Cock-a-Leekie, the classic Scottish soup - slow-cooked, wholesome and easy to make. For a twist on this recipe, you could use barley instead of rice.

    A real Scottish classic – serve this hearty combination of chicken, leeks, rice and prunes with wedges of warm soda bread spread thick with butter.

    I prefer cock-a-leekie a little lighter and have adapted my recipe accordingly.

    Cock-a-leekie soup is a filling winter soup made with barley, chicken and lots of leeks. My version adds a pinch of cloves which I feel lifts the flavour. Serve with plenty of crusty bread.

    The "Auld Reekie" does not refer to the soup being smokey but to the origins of the recipe in Edinburgh which used to be called Auld Reekie in the days of coal fires. Cock-a-leekie soup makes a regular appearance in Scottish kitchens but this variation has a special ingredient - Scotch whisky! It will, as they say, "stick to your ribs". Adding soaked prunes is optional but traditional.
