Author Notes

Nothing says corn like chicken and sweetcorn soup in our family: our boy loved it from the first spoonful he ever had as a three-year old. It is so easy to make, especially if you just buy the creamed corn (as we do), and if you bought some chicken stock (we prefer to make our own). But even if you made your ingredients from scratch, it wouldn't be too much work. You'd just need to allow enough time to make the stock.. —The home cook

What You'll Need
  • 1 liter chicken stock
  • 400 grams chicken breast fillets
  • 2 teaspoons finely grated fresh ginger
  • 1 tablespoon cornflour (cornstarch)
  • 400 grams creamed corn
  • 1.5 cups corn kernels
  • sliced spring onions (scallions)
  • salt and pepper
  1. In a large saucepan, simmer the chicken stock and chicken breasts for 5 to 10 minutes, until the chicken is cooked.
  2. Take the chicken out of the stock to let it cool, then use a fork to shred it.
  3. Take a spoonful of the stock and mix it with the cornflour in a small bowl to form a runny paste. Gradually pour this back into the stock, stirring all the time.
  4. Add the ginger to the stock. Simmer for a few minutes until the stock thickens.
  5. Add the chicken, creamed corn and corn and simmer for a few more minutes.
  6. Add salt and pepper to taste. Serve, garnished with the spring onions.

I was just coming over to your blog to tell you that corn was being featured for the F52 contest, when I saw your photo in the line-up! Hope it does well as it does sound so lovely!
