Olive oil, for cooking
1 banana shallot, finely sliced
2 spring onions, finely sliced
2 garlic cloves, finely sliced
1kg of chicken stock
50g of chard or another leafy green, finely sliced
10g of flat-leaf parsley, finely sliced
5g of tarragon, finely sliced
200g of chicken meat picked from a leftover roast chicken carcass
Stelline pasta or pearl couscous (optional)
Step 1

Heat a little oil in a saucepan and sweat the shallot, spring onions and garlic over a medium heat until softened.

Step 2

Strain the chicken stock through a muslin-lined colander, then add it to the pan along with the chard, parsley, tarragon and chicken meat. Simmer for 5 minutes before serving.

Step 3

You can add some stelline pasta or pearl couscous in for the last few minutes of cooking to bulk this recipe up, but you may require extra stock.
