Avocado cock-a-leekie

25g butter

Two chicken breasts, cut into strips

250g young leeks; I used 4 thin leeks straight from the allotment, washed and thinly sliced

850ml / One and a half pints hot chicken stock

1 ripe avocado peeled and sliced

When ready to serve, 1 tablespoon freshly chopped coriander

Melt butter in a saucepan, season chicken and fry for a few minutes.

Gently sauté the leeks for 3---4 minutes (or place the chopped leeks in oven in a tin foil parcel with a little butter ,pepper and just a dash of water to keep the leek goodness in.)

When leeks and chicken are tender, add hot chicken stock, check for seasoning.

To serve place a few slices of avocado in each soup bowl top with chicken strips and ladle in the leek soup.

Sprinkle with coriander and serve at once.
