Chicken Corn Soup

I was talking to my cousin the other day when she started telling me about this soup. It sounded so easy and fun to make that I tried it as soon as I got the corn.

There are no measurements as such for the ingredients. Everything can be added as per one's taste.

It's really simple. Here's what you need to do: Boil a piece of chicken with a little ginger garlic paste, salt, black pepper, and corn. After the chicken is fully boiled, take it out, shred it to small pieces, and add it back to the soup. Discard the bones.

Add dissolved cornflour to the soup till it reaches desired thickness.

Now comes the fun part. Beat an egg. Add it to the soup while stirring constantly and it'll get all cooked! And it gives the soup it's typical ghastly look. (I never knew this)

Apart from corn other vegetables that can be used are: peas, carrots, and/or cabbage.

1/2 cup boiled pasta can also be added or add pasta at the beginning so that it gets cooked along with the chicken and vegetables.

Drizzle some soy sauce and hot sauce when serving.

These days I'm making this soup every other day as it's lovely to have it in winter.


  1. That sounds like an interesting recipe for a "quick corn soup".

  2. This is really very simple. Will try substituting this recipe in the place of packaged soups!

  3. You'll forget packaged soups once you've tasted this. :)

  4. Wow! That's simple and quick.

  5. I recently got hooked onto soup, which is a big deal since I've always thrown my bowls of soup down the sink. :$

    I used to hate to hate the feathery pieces of egg swimming in it but I love them now. :D

  6. Delicious recipe. Thanks for sharing.
