I’m happy that my family loves chicken soup because it is very easy to cook and is a healthy soup. If I know that I’ll have a busy day, I’ll cook chicken soup early. When meal time comes, I only need to cook rice and another dish of vegetable stir fry and everyone will have a hot, satistying meal in less than 30 minutes.
My mom always asked me to add Chinese herbs to make it more nutritious to the body. Besides, it is warming for cold weather. The other day I tried to cook a different chicken soup that has a little sweetness to it. I decided to cook Sweet Corn And Apple Chicken Soup. This is the first time I tried it.
I remember years ago, a friend cooked apple pork soup for me. It was really delicious. She didn’t use the whole apple. She kept all the peeled apple skin in the freezer each time her family ate apples. When there was enough, she would use it to cook soup. What a brilliant idea…no waste!
Well, I thought I would add sweet corn too as it gives extra sweetness. The dried longan and wolfberries also add to the sweetness. The soup turned out fabulous. Here’s my recipe to share:
4 whole chicken legs
2 pieces of sweet corn (cut into halves)
3 red apples (quartered)
1/2C dried longan
Put everything into a pot. Add water and let it boil. Once it boils, let it simmer under low fire for about 1 hr. Season according to taste with Ingredients B.
Ingredients B (seasoning)
light soya sauce
chicken stock granules
fried shallot oil
