Chicken Velvet Sweetcorn Soup

Posted 2014-11-17 by Angelafollow
Classic Chinese soup that I had while in China when I was sick and every other day, absolutely delicious, and it is quick and easy to make and have at home.

Preparation Time: 10 minutes
Cooking Time: 15 minutes
Makes: 4-5 servings


Ingredients
1 large chicken breast fillet
1/2 tsp salt
2 egg whites, beaten until fluffy
5 cups of chicken stock
1 1/2 tbsp cornflour
250 gram tin of creamed corn
1 tsp sesame oil
2 tbsp Chinese wine or dry sherry
2 spring onions, sliced

Method
  • Place the chicken stock into a large saucepan and bring to the boil.
  • Meanwhile, chop the chicken finely so that it is close to a paste.



  • Place chicken in a bowl and add the salt and 2 tbsp of water, mix well to combine.
  • Fold in the egg white.



  • In a small bowl, combine cornflour and 1 tbsp of cold water to make a paste.
  • Add the cornflour paste and creamed corn to the chicken stock and bring back to the boil, cooking until thickened.



  • Stir in sesame oil, Chinese wine and the chicken velvet.
  • Reduce the heat to low, stir, and simmer for 2-3 minutes.
  • Serve immediately, garnish with spring onion.



  • NOTE try to get the lumps out of the chicken or the soup won't be velvety like the classic (as you can see mine isn't perfect).
