1 large onion (peeled and sliced thinly)

3 bay leaves
10 whole black peppercorns
1/2 bunch celery (cut in quarters and then diced small)

Celery leaves (to dress the soup)
1 litre Water
Salt/pepper to season

Place chicken, chopped onion, leeks, bay leaves, peppercorns, whole celery, whole carrots and lemon grass in the pot. Season and simmer, covered 1 hour.

Strain broth and reserve the chicken, and place the cooked vegetables to the side. When chicken is cool enough to handle, remove skin and pull the chicken apart into rough pieces.

Next add the chicken, vegetables and noodles back to the strained stock. Bring to a boil, then reduce heat, cover and simmer for a further 5 minutes. Lastly add the spinach and bok choy as they only take a couple of minutes to cook in the soup.

When serving isprinkle some chopped celery leaves over the top for colour.
