Recipe - Chicken, Vegetable and Hungarian Paprika Sausage Soup

I think that if someone was crazy enough to commission me to write a cookbook I'd have to call it something along the lines of "How to freestyle quick and easy dishes with sh*t you got at home". ;)

This is just a mix of stuff that I had at home that seemed to work together and it doesn't take all that long to cook either.

You can feed somewhere between two and four people with the proportions in this recipe. Add some crusty white bread and it is instantly a bit more filling.

As always - freestyle the recipe to your hearts content. Add and subtract ingredients as you feel fit and what suits what you have at home.

Ok, let's have a look at how I cooked this.

Ingredients (serves 2 - 4)
2 - 3 medium sized potatoes, peeled and cut into 1 cm cubes
2 medium sized carrots, peeled and cut into 1 cm cubes
2 skinless chicken breasts, cut into 2 cm cubes
200g Hungarian Paprika Sausage, cut into 2 cm cubes
4 salad onions, thinly sliced
450 ml chicken stock
250 ml water
A handful of parsley, finely chopped

Bring the stock and water to a boil. Add the potatoes, put a lid on the pot and let it boil for about 8 minutes.

Add chicken, carrot and sausage. Give it a good stir, bring it back to the boil and let it boil for another 5 minutes or so.

Stir in the spring onion and when it has boiled for another minute - stir in the parsley and remove from the heat.



  1. I did exactly as suggested and had a nice thick slice of crusty bread with the soup. The flavors are amazing and the bread helps get everything 'mopped' up.
    Thanks for sharing :) !

  2. Just bought some reduced price Hungarian Paprika Sausage, do you know if can I freeze it either before or after cooking please?

  3. Hi Audrey,

    I have successfully frozen sausage similar to these so I wouldn't see a problem with it.

    The soup should, at least in my opinion, freeze ok. The only thing I've had to do at occasions in the past is to add some extra liquid when I reheat it. Some seems to go missing in the freezing process. ;)

    I hope the soup turns out ok for you and that you enjoy it.
