Add the plain flour and stir. Pour in the chicken stock, add the potatoes and bring to a simmer. Pop the chicken in and cook for about 10 minutes, remove the chicken and shred with a fork. Keep the soup simmering away whilst you work on the chicken. Add the chicken back to the pan with the fresh thyme and season with salt and milled pepper.
