Easy Chicken and Corn Soup

This super easy three ingredient chicken and corn soup makes a great outdoor appetizer or light meal. Similar to egg-drop soup, egg whites are gently whisked into the hot broth. It adds a bit of texture and protein to the meal.

With so few ingredients it puts more pressure on choosing quality ingredients. Ideally use a rich homemade chicken stock. However, if you are doing some lightweight camping, homemade stock can easily be exchanged for powdered chicken stock. You’ll still have a warming and satisfying meal.

We have tried adding a lot of extras to this recipe like fresh ginger and garlic. You can also garnish the soup with sliced spring onions and fried shallots. But we always come back to the simple three ingredients which are always perfectly balanced.

Using homemade chicken broth is ideal for this recipe, but if you need to keep supplies lightweight, chicken stock powder will also work.

    Tip: If you over whisk the egg white and pour it into the soup it will create a foam on top rather than the desired streaks. 
  • Taste and adjust the flavor with salt and pepper as needed. Serve immediately while hot, but do not bring back to the boil otherwise it will break up the egg white.
