I love soup - and I came across this recipe on the ninemsn website when exploring recipes under the food section. I am particularly fond of Chicken & Sweet Corn Soup but have never found a recipe that I could say - yes...more please!! This one did it for me! This recipe makes for 4 small servings - but I always tend to add more stock and water etc to make it up to 6 small servings.
- 3 cups reduced-sodium chicken broth
- 1 cup water
- 2 tablespoons Chinese wine or 2 tablespoons sherry wine
- 3 cm piece fresh ginger, grated
- 1 garlic clove, sliced thinly
- 2 teaspoons salt reduced soy sauce
- 2 skinless chicken breast fillets (400grms)
- 1 egg
- 420 g creamed corn
- 310 g corn kernels (drained & rinsed)
- 3 spring onions (sliced thinly)
- Bring stock, water, wine, ginger, garlic, spring onion, soy sauce, and chicken to the boil in a large saucepan over a medium heat.
- Reduce heat and simmer for about 7 minutes or until the chicken is just cooked through.
- Remove chicken from stock and when cool enough to handle, shred coarsely.
- Return stock to boil.
- Break egg into small bowl and whisk lightly.
- Slowly pour egg into stock, whisking constantly so it forms small threads.
- Add creamed corn, kernels and chicken to stock and return to the boil.
Really nice there sunshine.
This is fantastic, I have made this countless times and it never fails. My other half loves it. I also add a star anise when boiling the stock and a little more ginger. Tastes just like what you are served in a Chinese restaurant. This is the best recipe I have found for this soup
This was exactally when we needed last night with a houseful of sickies! Easy to make, warm, filling and really tasty. Another good recipe I was able to make with stables I had on hand.
