Chicken and corn soup

(Recipe taken from this blogpost)

The picture at the end really doesn’t look all that fab, but it really was yum! I’m a big fan of chicken and sweetcorn soup, it’s one of the few that actually fill you up. We had large bowls with slabs of garlic bread on a pretty foul night in Melbourne, and you couldn’t really have asked for anything more hearty or satisying. The only thing extra I would do in the future is add a small tin of sweetcorn in addition to the creamed corn

Anyway. Enough blablabla from me.

Ingredients

500g chicken breast, cut into chunks (Since you’ll mince this, a cheaper option could be thighs?)

2 tsp potato flour/cornflour (I used the latter)

1/2 tsp salt

2 tbsp water

1l chicken stock

1 can (420g) creamed corn

1 tsp sesame oil (I love the taste of sesame oil in this soup so I was pretty generous with my amount, more along the lines of 1.5 tbsp)

A bit more salt to taste

2tbsp potato flour mixed with 2 tbsp water

1 egg, beaten

Method

  • Pop chicken, flour, salt and water into your TMX bowl.
  • Hit Turbo 3 times to roughly mince the chicken and incorporate the marinade. Set aside.

  • Add the chicken stock into the TMX bowl and heat for 5 mins/100 degrees/speed 1. Add the chicken back in and cook for 3 mins/90 degrees/reverse/speed 1.
  • Add creamed corn (and extra corn kernels if you have it), sesame oil and salt, and cook for 5 mins/90 degrees/reverse/speed 1. Once the blade is turning, add your cornflour & water mixture through the lid to thicken the soup.
  • Pour your egg mixture in a steady stream through the lid in the last 5-10 seconds of cooking, and serve immediately with as much black pepper as you like. You can also add another dash of sesame oil, and some spring onion/shallots if you have it handy!

    Yum! I made this (well a version of, based on how much of each ingredient I had to hand lol) last night and it was the perfect ‘I have a yukky head cold’ comfort food. Now I’m off to expore the rest of your blog and see what I can make for dinner tonight…

      Oh yay, I hope the soup made you feel better! Try the spagbol, that’s awesome when you’re recovering from said cold and need to eat everything in sight 🙂
