Easy chicken soup

Easy chicken soup



  • 500g chicken thigh fillets, diced
  • olive oil
  • 1 onion, diced
  • 1 tsp ground cumin
  • 1 tsp ground turmeric
  • 1/2 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 1 x 400g tin chopped tomatoes
  • 1 x 400g tin chickpeas
  • 500ml chicken stock
  • 1 cup coriander, finely chopped
  • Turkish bread, to serve


Dice the chicken thigh fillets and set aside.

Heat a little olive oil in a heavy-based saucepan and cook the onion for five minutes, or until soft and translucent.

Add the spices and chicken and cook for another minute or so.

Add the tomatoes, chickpeas and stock, bring to the boil and reduce heat to a gentle simmer for about 25 minutes.

Stir through the coriander and serve with warmed Turkish bread.


  •  You can make this with diced lamb or leave meat out entirely and add a few more pulses.
  • It is best to use thigh fillets for this recipe as they impart a lot more chicken flavour than chicken breast.
