    Default Chinese Style Corn and Chicken Soup


    Thanks to JL and aem (I think) for inspiring me. Sorry, I'm not
    replying in the thread... but I can't find it. I took both of your
    recipes and made it tonight. It's soooo easy!

    I happened to have everything on hand, including ham and dark sesame
    oil - which were not necessary at all. I think green onion tops would
    have made a nice garnish, but I didn't have any on hand, so I used
    cilantro instead.

    I needed to poach a chicken breast first. Other than that, it was
    fast to make. Here's what I did.

    Chinese Style Corn and Chicken Soup
    by sf
    6 servings

    1 chicken breast poached and shredded or to 1 C shredded chicken
    4 C chicken broth
    1 can creamed corn
    1/2 - 1 C whole kernel corn (fresh or frozen - I used frozen)
    3T cornstarch
    3T water
    1 whole egg, beaten
    t salt (optional)
    pepper
    green onion tops sliced into rounds

    Bring broth up to a simmer. Stir together the cornstarch and water,
    add it to the broth. Stir. It will thicken quickly. Add the beaten
    egg in a thin stream, to make fine strands of egg (I stirred the broth
    in one direction with a flat whisk). Add the salt, creamed corn,
    whole kernel corn and cooked chicken to the mixture.

    Stir well and bring soup up to serving temperature.

    Ladle into bowls. Grind some pepper in the middle and garnish with
    green onion tops.

    I love cooking with wine.
    Sometimes I even put it in the food.

    But... but... no call for peas?

    Thanks,

    You could always add them. Give peas a chance!

    Mornin' Bob,

    I know, I was just being an AM wiseguy!

    I'd use snow peas, I think.

    Best,

    When you "do THAT", you could always pea in the pot.
    Close enough for you, I am sure.

    No you are NOT. I don't go that way. Give Gregory or Wayne or Michael a
    call.
