Chicken And Corn Soup For A Lazy Lunch.

This is one of my favourite soups to make when I have little time but want something yummy and healthy for lunch. The best bit is that it is the perfect way to use up left over cooked chicken. It actually looks and tastes a lot more impressive than it sounds which is always a good thing!  I originally got the recipe from a friend.

Chicken And Corn Soup


  • cut up cooked chicken, roughly about a cup
  • 1 litre of chicken stock
  • 1 400g tin of creamed corn
  • 1 large zucchini, grated
Chicken and Corn Soup

The method is so easy it is almost not worth writing down.  Throw the whole lot in a pot and simmer for 20 minutes.  Pop it into a bowl and serve with crusty bread and salt and pepper.

Yummy, healthy and super easy.  Got to love that as a concept.

I hope everyone had a fantastic weekend.  Busy weekend here on The Farm as per usual....!

You're a clever bird! Too easy. Why didn't I think of this? A nice one to add to my repetoire of "What to do with these leftovers". Thanks AFW. :)

Just my kind of recipe. Any excuse to pop down to Coles for another of their rotisserie chickens.

What a great recipe and a perfect weekend for soup! I love the addition of zucchini. I'm always keen for ways to add a bit more veggie into the diet. I think this will be made soon.
