Nutritional values

Vegetables and juice contain lots of vitamins; the mix already covers a quarter of the vitamin C requirement. The ingredients of the leek have a disinfectant and digestive effect; the chicken provides a lot of protein.

If you don't have that much practice in cutting up a chicken, you can have this work done by a poulterer - or simply buy chicken parts.
