Chicken and Leek Corn Soup

A simple chicken soup warms your soul. Hmmm..what if we load up the “simple” soup with leeks, onions and even a handful of orzo? What will that do to our souls? Heat it up real hot perhaps?

We are trying to create a new tradition this winter- a different kind of soup every weekend! I’m not sure how long that would last but I’m enjoying learning about all kinds of soups we can have. Hot simmering soup for winter- with a good dvd some candles perhaps…it could almost passed off as our new candle light dinner…

Almost.



Chicken and Leek Corn Soup
1 chicken breast-poached for 15 minutes till tender. shred.
1 ltre of chicken stock
2 cups of corn kennels
1 leek sliced

Add in poached shredded chicken. Taste and season. Turn off the heat. Pour eggs. Stir. Ladle and serve with spring onions.
