About this recipe:This nutritious soup is ready in just half an hour. Palak is an excellent source of Vit A, rice gives you carbs, chicken brings protein and without its skin is also low in fat. This is a whole meal in a bowl! Add chopped green chillies for spice.
Rachel Warren Chadd
140g basmati rice
2 litres chicken stock
225g chicken fillets (skinned and boned breasts), cut into 5mm (1/4in) slices
Place the rice in a sieve and rinse under cold running water until the water runs clear.
Place the rice in a large saucepan with the chicken stock and bring to the boil. Simmer for about 10 minutes.
Add the sliced chicken to the pan and simmer, partly covered, for a further 5 minutes. Stir in the spinach and continue simmering for another 5 minutes or until the rice is tender and the chicken and spinach are cooked.
Season with the lemon juice and pepper, then serve hot.
