4 tablespoons water

1 clove garlic, peeled and crushed

1 large onion, peeled and chopped

1 small green capsicum, de-seeded and chopped

1 stick celery, trimmed and thinly sliced

8 oz (225 g) courgettes, trimmed and cut into thin strips

2 level tablespoons plain (all-purpose) flour

pint (425 ml) chicken stock (please refer to more on All Healthy Soups Recipes)

1 lb (450 g) plum tomatoes, peeled and chopped

6 oz (175 g) uncooked chicken breast without skin or bone, cut into small cubes

-1 teaspoon Tabasco

Freshly ground black pepper



Heat the oil and water in a large, heavy-based saucepan and cook the garlic, onion, green capsicum, celery and courgettes in it over a moderate heat for about 10 minutes, stirring occasionally, until the vegetables are softened.  Stir in the flour and cook for 2 minutes.  Gradually stir in the stock, then add the tomatoes, chicken and Tabasco.  Bring to the boil, stirring, then simmer for 15 minutes, or until the chicken is tender.  Stir in the lemon juice, sprinkle with pepper and serve.
