With the cold weather that seems to be setting in all everywhere, I thought it would be nice to share some comforting soup recipes. Chicken and Corn Soup is a family favourite and this recipe is super easy to whip up.
Chicken and Corn Soup
1 medium onion finely chopped
5ml garlic crushed
5ml ginger crushed
4 chicken breasts finely sliced
2.5 litres chicken stock
2 (410g) tins sweetcorn
30ml fresh coriander chopped
- Heat the butter in a large pot and add the onion and cook until lightly browned.
- Add the garlic, ginger and chicken breasts and fry for 10 minutes.
- Add the stock and salt, bring to the boil and simmer for 30 minutes.
- Add the Sweetcorn and bring the soup back to the boil.
- Mix the cornflour with a little water and add to the soup, stirring until slightly thickened.
- Remove from the heat and stir in the coriander.
My family love it 🙂
Always seems to be an easy one that everybody enjoys. 🙂
one word YUM!
Your so right about the colder weather settling in, the nights have been quite chilly and your chicken & corn soup sounds like a winner! Pea and ham was on our menu this week and Sunday night we had long soup with udon noodles and prawns, never a dull soup moment in the kitchen! x
I could eat soup every night of the week in winter. I have a few more soup recipes coming up next week. I love pea and ham soup. Your soup with noodles and prawns sounds great. 🙂
I love the idea of putting garlic and ginger in with the soup – this is one I love, so will be giving your version a go soon…even though we´re moving into summer here, I can eat soup most of the year!
Enjoy it when you make it. 🙂
So easy!! I like – will have to try this, the slight spiciness sounds delicious!
The garlic and ginger is a nice addition. Enjoy. 🙂
this sounds so cornfully delishous! xxxx
It really is yummy and keeps very well too. 🙂
We’re contemplating turning on the air here and this still looks wonderful.
My hubby and I managed to go the whole Mauritius summer without using the AC – we managed with just a fan – helped the electricity bit a lot!
Sounds delicious, Mandy! When I was growing up, there was always a little ham in it as well, although the little bit of ginger is new to me, and sounds like an inspired addition!
On occasion I like adding something different to recipes and love when they really work well, like the ginger. The addition of ham sound great too. 🙂
Oh this soup sounds delish! I LOVE Corn, but then again who doesnt! : )
Hi Holly, welcome and thanks for stopping by. I agree, who doesn’t like corn. 🙂
This sounds scrumptious! We are way past any cold weather here in Florida. I’ll wish some of my weather your way 🙂
Thanks Martha. Winter and I are not the best of friends. 🙂
I’d love someone to whip me up a batch of this for dinner tonight. (It’s Sunday here and I avoid cooking on the weekends. Lazy.)
I would also love somebody to whip something up for me every now and again – it would be great to put in my order for what I feel like eating. 🙂
It sounds delicious! The weather here was all summer till yesterday (today it’s sooooo cold; so I know how a soup would do in this case!!!)
I don’t enjoy it when the weather turns so quickly. Hope it warms up a bit again for you. 🙂
I love corn soup, your recipe is a good timing. Its getting cold here already in NZ
The weather is still lovely and warm here in Mauritius but when we get back home to South Africa at the end of next month, it is going to be very cold. Enjoy the soup. 🙂
Oh yeah it sounds pretty easy and agree it’s nice for cold weather. SF has been showering and pretty cold. It was hot one week then cold again. I should enjoy cooking and eating soup before it gets too warm again. Thanks for sharing the recipe! Adding Coriander and cornflour is new to me and I must try! 🙂
Nami, I would add coriander to most things, but it is not my hubby’s favourite herb. 😉
