Recipe – Chicken & Sweet Corn Soup

Chicken & Sweet Corn Soup
This is my version of the classic Cantonese chicken and sweet corn soup found on every suburban Chinese restaurant menu. I add egg noodles to create a simple one pot dish, but you could leave them out to make an entrée for 8 people. You might have chicken stock in the freezer from making Steeped Chicken; or you could poach a whole free-range chicken from Eugowra Game Birds (poultry supplier to top restaurants who also home delivers) to make the stock and shred all the meat for the soup. See Saw Wines Incubator SAMM is a great wine match. This sauv blanc/marsanne blend is the winery’s first foray into skin contact wines – organic fruit, wild fermented, carbonically macerated with lots of lees stirring, it has great mouthfeel and body while still being light enough for the soup’s delicate flavours.

Serves 4

Ingredients
  • 2 cobs corn
  • 2 litres chicken stock
  • ⅓ cup Shaoxing rice wine
  • 2 teaspoons finely grated ginger
  • 500g chicken thigh fillets, thinly sliced
  • 200g dried egg noodles
  • 4 green onions, finely sliced
  • 2 teaspoons sesame oil
  • 2 tablespoons arrowroot, made into a paste with 2 tablespoons water
  • 2 eggs, lightly beaten
  • Salt flakes and freshly ground white pepper, to taste
Method
  1. Slice the corn kernels off the cobs and chop roughly.
  2. Place corn kernels in a saucepan with chicken stock, Shaoxing and ginger.
  3. Bring to the boil, reduce heat, cover and simmer for 5 minutes.
  4. Add chicken and noodles, return to the boil, reduce heat and simmer for a further 4 minutes.
  5. Add green onion, sesame oil and arrowroot paste, increase heat and stir until soup boils and thickens slightly.
  6. Reduce heat and drizzle in egg, stirring slowly so that it forms thin ribbons through the soup.
  7. Remove from heat, taste, add salt and pepper and serve.

We made the pot-sticker dumplings and bang bang chicken – once again both exceeded our expectations. My husband keeps saying it’s better ordering this than going out to restaurants as the recipes and food quality are amazing.

I loved the Fresh & Easy Chicken – simple instructions, only a few ingredients and the time factor absolutely spot on. Then came the highlight, the taste, no compromise on the enjoyment of that meal! For the time poor Fresh & Easy hits the mark indeed.

Thank you for stocking our pantry with such authentic Ingredients and quality produce ... I’ve so enjoyed picking fresh leaves from the herb pots and loved listening to the chef's playlist while cooking. We really like the flexibility of cooking over a couple of days and changing the order we cook the dishes in when we want to.
