You'll need a large stockpot for this soup. Parsnip, turnip, leek, carrot, celery, and dill all lend their flavours to this hearty soup made with a whole chicken. Freezes well.

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

Easy to cook, quick winter soup. This is great to make when leeks are in season, and uses ready made chicken stock for convenience.

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.

This soup is not only delicious, but also the perfect healthy meal. Chicken is simmered with an assortment of vegetables and egg noodles, in a chicken stock.

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

A super-easy recipe for chicken soup. Cooked chicken is simmered with mixed vegetables, soup and milk. Serve with crusty fresh bread for lunch or dinner.

This is a great soup for curling up in front of the fire on cold winter nights, it's also great for kids and those who don't like veggies as everything is grated and as there's no butter or cream it's really healthy
