Introducing Chicken Tinola, a favourite dish of the Philippines and a taste of our childhood. This soupy stew is great for restoring one's health - homemade chicken stock is key. Onions, garlic and ginger are added before being topped up with chicken and veg. Serve with a squeeze of lemon juice for an immune-boosting dish that is flavoursome, soothing and warming.
THAI CHICKEN NOODLE SOUP: Even if you don't have much chicken left over, you should still make this. A few shreds will be plenty. (And this recipe is worth bearing in mind even when your starting point is not leftover chicken: if you were to bung in some frozen prawns at the end, making sure you cook them through, this would make for a fabulous storecupboard supper.)
