This soup is a firm favorite of Cully's daughter Aoibheann.  She loves nothing more than coming in from the park and having a warming bowl of Chicken soup.


  • Melt the butter in a saucepan with a tight fitting lid.
  • Sweat the onions, celery and leek until soft but not coloured.
  • Add potato and carrot. Season with salt and pepper.
  • Sweat for another five minutes or so, until the vegetable are beginning to soften, add the stock and simmer until veg are cooked through.
  • Liquidise the soup, add the cream and chicken and then liquidise again, but not too much as it will make it go grainy.
  • Pop back on the stove and heat through.
  • Serve it with a blob of cream and some fresh chopped herbs or maybe a few croutons.
