An alternative option is to use a whole chicken instead of the thighs in this soup. Shred the leg and thigh meat as per the recipe and keep the breast meat for sandwiches.

4 large chicken thighs, bone-in, skin and extra fat removed
2 onions, roughly chopped
1 tsp English mustard powder
2 chicken stock pots
2 tbsp wholegrain mustard
2 bay leaves
2.5 litres/4½ pints boiling water
300g/10½oz baby Chantenay carrots, scrubbed and larger ones halved

Method

Preheat the slow cooker to the lowest setting and boil the kettle.

Put the chicken thighs and onions into the slow cooker with the mustard powder, stock pots, wholegrain mustard and bay leaves. Pour over the boiling water, put on the lid and leave to cook for 5 hours.

Stir in the carrots and pearl barley. Continue cooking for a further hour until the carrots and barley are tender. Turn off the slow cooker and remove the chicken. Remove and discard the bay leaves, and stir in the peas and broad beans. Re-cover.
