Carefully remove chicken and set aside to cool slightly. Simmer stock, uncovered, for a further 30 minutes.

  3. Heat oil in same cleaned pan over medium heat. Finely chop remaining celery and add to pan with leek. Cook, stirring, for 5 minutes or until softened. Add 1.5L (6 cups) reserved stock, corn, pasta and shredded chicken breast and simmer, uncovered, for 6–8 minutes or until pasta is tender. Serve sprinkled with chives.
