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
1 red onion sliced
1 tablespoon of garlic
2 eggs lightly beaten
spring onions
handful of small pasta of your choice. I used orzo here.

Heat a big pot. Add onions and garlic. Fry up the leeks till tender. Pour chicken stock over it. Simmer. Add corn. Continue to simmer for another 5 minutes. Add orzo and cook till pasta is done. Add in poached shredded chicken. Taste and season. Turn off the heat. Pour eggs. Stir. Ladle and serve with spring onions.

I prefer such creamy soup once in a while. Even during winter, my go-to is chicken soup (chinese style)
