Homemade Chinese Chicken Sweetcorn Soup

I intended to make the most delicious and yummy homemade Creamy Chicken and Corn Soup but didn’t have cream and it was too cold Saturday to go out and buy some, so I settled for the Chinese Chicken Sweetcorn version instead.

Homemade Chinese Chicken Sweetcorn Soup has been my favorite ever since I can remember and is the quickest to prepare.


  • 2 chicken breasts, on the bone
  • 4 cups water
  • 1 tbsp chicken stock powder
  • 2 eggs separated
  • 1 can cream-style sweet corn
  • 2 spring onion sliced
  • 1 tbsp cornstarch
  • 1 tsp soya sauce
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • 1 tsp sesame oil

  4. If cool enough to handle use your fingers to shred chicken.
  5. Boil the remaining water and add to the pot with the shredded chicken.
  6. Add the sweet corn.
  7. Using the can add the cornstarch and liquid from the pot and mix into a paste and add to the pot.
