1 Melt the butter in a saucepan and heat gently to fry the onions, celery and carrots until they start to soften.
2. Stir in the flour and cook for 2 minutes.
3. Add the chicken stock and bring the mixture to the boil, stirring continually.
4. Season with salt and pepper, then reduce the heat until the mixture is simmering for 15 minutes, or until the vegetables are tender.
5. Add the cooked chicken and cook until heated through. You may want to adjust the thickness of your soup with water (for thinner) or flour (for thicker). Stir in the parsley and any herbs you wish according to your taste.
6. Serve with a fresh hunk of bread and butter.
