Chicken Sweetcorn Soup – A perfect cold buster soup with homemade croutons

This delicious, silky smooth Chicken-sweetcorn Soup, served with homemade croutons on the side, is a real winter warmer!

This could be served as a perfect starter in the cold winter months or serve to someone who is just recovering from a  nasty bout of a cold,  that could make him feel better instantly.  Kids too will love the soft bite of sweetcorn and the crunchiness of the buttered croutons floating on the soup.

I fried the croutons with a little butter on the pan, instead of making them in the oven, which I found much more easier and less time consuming too.  To my delight I found them beautifully buttery and crunchy, just the perfect crusty accompaniment for the soup!

You need the following ingredients to make this soup:

Chicken breast/pieces without bones 100 g
Corn flour 1 tbsp
Warm water 2 cups
Sweetcorn 1/4 cup
Vinegar 1/4 tsp
Salt and pepper to taste
Eggs  1
Onion  1
Garlic  3 cloves
Spring onion chopped 1 tbsp
Soy sauce 1/2 tbsp
Olive oil or any cooking oil 1 tbsp

Let’s make :

  • Heat oil in a heavy bottom pan
  • Drop chopped onions and garlic and saute a little.  Do not brown.
  • Add the chicken pieces cut into stripes and stir fry for 2 mins
  • Add salt and pepper

  • Pour  1 & 1/2 cups of warm water, cover and boil for 10 mins

  • Next, pour the chicken broth through a seive
  • Seperate the chicken pieces and crumble them or cut them into further thin stripes

  • Pour the chicken broth again to the pan and let it simmer
  • Drop sweetcorn and spring onions and give a good stir
  • Beat the egg and slowly pour into the pan while stiring vigorously with a fork

  • Add vinegar

  • Add soy sauce
  • Mix cornflour with 2tbsp of warm water and add into the pan and keep stiring
  • Adjust the taste.   Add a bit more water if the soup is too thick
  • Mix everything and simmer under low flame for 3 – 5 mins while stiring continuously
  • Serve piping hot in an elegant soup bowl with homemade croutons on the side
