We were all battling head colds here recently so we needed some healing Slow Cooker Chicken & Sweet Corn Soup. The day we were at our worst, at around lunch time, I set up the slow cooker, dumped in all the ingredients, and all afternoon we enjoyed the delicious aroma of chicken soup filling the house. We had bought a yummy loaf of Panna de Casa bread for the occasion and were all looking forward to the warm crustiness it promised.
I’m sure you all probably make this soup at home. It’s super easy and not much effort, even when you are feeling pretty rough. I did actually struggle to the supermarket to buy the chicken and fresh spring onions, but you could skip the spring onions if you had to – not the chicken though!
- 1 large chicken breast (500g), cut into four large chunks
- 2 tsp powdered ginger (use fresh ginger if you have it)
- 2 garlic cloves, minced
- 4 spring onions, thinly sliced
- 420g can creamed corn
- 2 tsp soy sauce
- 1 pkt chicken noodle soup mix (optional)
- 3-4 cups chicken stock
- 1 egg
- Place the chicken in the bottom of the slow cooker bowl.
- Add the rest of the ingredients on top of the chicken (except the egg).
- Turn slow cooker on HIGH for 4-6 hours.
- Just prior to serving, use two forks to shred the chicken.
- Then beat the egg lightly and gradually stir in the egg in a thin, steady stream.
- You can garnish with extra spring onion.
- Serve with warm, crusty bread.
