Chicken and Corn Soup

Chicken and Corn soup is a simple yet nutritious soup recipe that requires boneless chicken and shredded corn kernels. This is an easy to follow budget friendly recipe that you will surely love. I like this soup because the main ingredients are readily available anywhere — no matter which part of the world you are in. Aside from that, I think that the flavor and consistency of this soup is fantastic.

Chicken and Corn Soup

I used ground chicken breasts for this recipe. However, you can always use bone-in chicken. All you need to do is boil the chicken for 20 minutes, and then manually separate the meat from the bones, and shred using a food processor (or chop in small pieces). Use the remaining liquid as chicken stock.

As for the corn, I used fresh corn kernels. I needed the help of a food processor to shred the corn kernels until it reached the state that I wanted. You do not have to do this if you want the easier way. Canned shredded corn kernels are sold in supermarkets. You may opt to use them instead.

If you love soup, nutrition, and saving money, you should consider this recipe.

  1. I made this soup today. Having read Karen Martin’s feedback, I used one can of cream style corn instead of shredded kernels. I also used 4.5 cups of water and 1 chicken bouillon cube to make up for the broth. The rest is according to recipe. The sesame oil and ginger give the soup a soothing, authentic twist. I am going for my second bowl. Thanks for sharing Vanjo!

  2. I made this soup today and it was pretty good. A little bland, so I added a little more xox chicken bouillon, and also added a little heavy cream hoping to give a little more flavor. I used 3 heads of fresh corn, don’t know what shredded corn is, however, I did put the corn through a food chopper. I think It would be better with a can of cream style corn. It was something different, and I enjoyed it. It could be that I used a mild broth. So I will have to make it again with a different broth and also can creamed corn.
