Chinese Chicken and Corn Soup

A delicious and comforting Chinese Chicken and Corn Soup using fresh corn. It’s so easy to make this classic Chinese takeaway dish at home, plus it is healthier and fresher!

If you love Chinese food, chances are that you have tried Chinese Chicken and Corn Soup at one time or another. Despite it being popular and well known as a Chinese starter, it also happens to be quite common in Vietnamese households.

My children absolutely adore this soup for all of the obvious reasons – it’s comforting, they can slurp and eat the soup noisily, and it’s bright yellow!

  • 3 to 4 ears of corn, husk and silk removed
  • 1 litre (4 cups) chicken stock
  • 500 ml (2 cups) boiling water
  • 5 spring onions (scallions), the white parts kept whole and the green parts sliced
  • 2 garlic cloves, peeled and crushed
  • 4 thick slices of ginger
  • 2 coriander (cilantro) roots (optional)
  • 1 to 2 small chicken breast fillets
  • 3 eggs, lightly beaten
  • 1–2 tablespoons soy sauce
  • 1 teaspoon sesame oil
  • 2 tablespoons Shaoxing wine (or dry sherry)
  • 2 tablespoons cornstarch
  • coriander (cilantro), finely chopped
  • freshly ground white pepper
