Chicken and Sweetcorn Soup

READY IN: 25mins
Recipe by piglips

Very easy to make, but prepare everything before cooking as it takes about 10 - 15 minutes once the water starts boiling. Can adjust water content and meat quantities as desired.

Excellent soup and easy to make. I added a few slithers of pickled ginger as well as fresh corriander which inhanced the flavours. Thanks for sharing this recipe.
