Cock a Leekie Soup Recipe

Overview

I lived in Scotland for two years and had always wanted to try making Cock-a-leekie soup, but I couldn't find a recipe that sounded right. Finally, though, I found one that sounded close, and with a bit of modification (I cut out the prunes and added the chicken)I ended up with something my husband and kids and I were all happy with.

Step 1

Bring stock to a boil in a large pot; add leeks and chicken and simmer 5 minutes; add butter, cream and seasonings and simmer gently for another 5-10 minutes. Serve hot.

Things You'll Need

  • 1 1 stewing chicken or equivalent pieces, cooked, deboned and cut into bite-sized pieces
  • 1 3/4 cup heavy cream
  • 1 5 tablespoons butter
  • 1 5 cups strong chicken stock
  • 1 2 large leeks, washed and roughly chopped
  • 1 2 good pinches salt
  • 1 pepper to taste
