Comforting Corn and Chicken Soup

Remember my previous blog entry where I made corn fritters for my family for tea time? Well, my friend gave me more than enough corns for me to make a few meals out of it. I turn some of it into soup.

It’s very easy to make, and like most of the recipe that I put up in my blog, they’re frugal food and usually contains no more than 5 ingredients in each dish. Good for the tummy, friendly on the penny. And most important thing is, it’s very easy to make. I would recommend this for students who are on a budget as well as busy mums out there who lacks time to prepare nutritious food for the family.

Allow me to share the recipe with you.


1 corn

1 carrot

3 piece of chicken(preferably drumsticks, but anything goes.)


3 bowl of water

Sat to taste

Here’s how you do it. Boil water to the pot and bring it to simmer before tossing in the cleaned chicken drumsticks inside of it. Break the corn into few piece if it’s too long and put it into the pot together with the chicken. Slice the carrot and shred the cabbage leaves. Toss it inside once the water is boiling, and add in salt to taste. Cook for at least 30 minutes before serving.

Goes well on it’s own on a cold day, or serve it with plain rice for lunch or supper.

Yield: 4 servings.

Preparation time: 45 minutes.

Cleffairy: Good and nutritious food does not have to be expensive.

    This type of corn (2 colours) are very sweet !

    I love sweet corn soup but never add in the cabbage. Normally, carrot, pork ribs, wolfberries and corn. Both my kids love them too.

      LOL, June, the corn is not sick… this corn is called the ‘pearl’ corn. It came from Cameron Highlands, and it’s a species of corn… usually the pearl corns are very very sweet in comparison to the normal corns grown on low lands. This one much more sweeter than the normal one, cuz grown on highlands. LOL…like what your mum said, China corns taste nicer, cuz it’s grown in cold place. 😀
