Creamy Chicken and Corn Soup

Winter has arrived and we have been enjoying yummy soups and warm nourishing foods here in store! Check out this recipe we found on


  • 1 litre water

  • 1 litre chicken stock

  • 1 small carrot, coarsely chopped

  • 1 celery stalk, trimmed, coarsely chopped

  • 1 small brown onion, coarsely chopped

  • 1.5 kg whole chicken

  • 25g butter

  • 35g (¼ cup) plain flour

  • 2 tbsp lemon juice

  • 310g can creamed corn

  • 150g (1 cup) frozen corn kernels

  • 125ml (½ cup) pouring cream

  • ¼ cup snipped chives

Method Ingredients

Step 1

Combine the water, stock, carrot, celery and onion in a large saucepan over medium-high heat. Bring to the boil, then reduce the heat to a simmer. Add the chicken, cover and simmer for 1 hour or until the chicken is cooked and the juices run clear when it is pierced through the thickest part (between the thigh and body).

Step 2

Remove the chicken from the pan. Simmer the broth, covered, for a further 30 minutes. Strain through a sieve or colander lined with muslin (cheesecloth) into a large heatproof bowl. Discard the vegetables. Clean the pan. (We sometimes leave the veggies in the broth, depending on how we are feeling)

Step 3

Melt the butter in the cleaned saucepan over medium heat. Add the flour and cook, stirring, for 1 minute. Gradually stir in the strained broth and lemon juice. Stir until the mixture boils and thickens slightly. Stir in the creamed corn, corn kernels and cream. Reduce the heat and simmer for 20 minutes

Meanwhile, carve the chicken, remove and discard the skin and bones. Shred the meat coarsely. Add the chicken to the soup. Stir until heated through. Serve sprinkled with the chives. Add Salt and Pepper to taste.
