How to make easy chicken chowder

  1. Heat a splash of oil in a pan over a medium heat.
  2. Finely chop ½ celery stick and ½ onion, then fry until softened.
  3. Stir in 1 tbsp flour and cook for a few minutes.
  4. Gradually stir in around 200ml milk over a low heat until the sauce has thickened – you want the consistency of double cream.
  5. Add ½ chicken stock cube, some shredded roast chicken, frozen sweetcorn, and 1 parboiled, cubed potato.
  6. Heat until all the ingredients are cooked through and the soup has a creamy consistency – you can add another splash of milk or water to loosen if necessary.
  7. Stir in the zest of 1 lemon, black pepper and a handful chopped parsley to serve.
