Chinese chicken and sweet corn soup

Chinese chicken and sweet corn soup




  • 1 leek, cleaned and white part finely diced
  • 1 tbsp vegetable oil
  • 4 cups chicken stock
  • 1 BBQ chicken
  • 1 x 425g tin creamed corn
  • 2 eggs, lightly beaten
  • 3 spring onions, finely sliced


Cut all the white meat from the BBQ chicken. Remove the skin and then cut the meat into small bite-szed pieces. Set aside.

Heat the vegetable oil in a large saucepan over a medium heat. Add leek and cook until transluscent.

Add the chicken stock and bring to the boil. Turn down heat to a simmer then add the chicken pieces and the creamed corn.

Stir through and allow to simmer for 20 minutes.

Take off heat and using a fork, gently stir the soup as you add the beaten egg in a continuous stream. Continue stirring the soup with the fork for another minute once all the egg has been added.

Serve immediately with a small handful of chopped spring onions as a garnish.
