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.
Easy Chicken and Corn Soup Recipe
- 4 cups chicken stock
- 1 can creamed corn
- 1 egg white
- salt and pepper to taste
- balloon whisk
- Add the chicken stock and can of creamed corn to a pot, mix to combine, then bring to a simmer.
- Gently whisk the egg white in a small bowl to break up. While stirring the soup slowly add the egg to create egg streaks. 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.
