Tasty Tuesday: Chicken & Corn Egg Drop Soup

I was reminded of this recipe when I saw it on blogger Extrapetite‘s Instagram story. Hers is sweeter because she uses the full can of creamed corn. I called my mom up for her version. This is a great go-to for a cold day which somehow there are still plenty left of this “Spring.”

  • Salt & pepper to taste

Directions: 

  1. In a pot, bring broth and sweet corn cream style to a medium boil for 2-3 minutes.
  2. Add thawed corn kernels and shredded chicken. Bring to a low boil.
  3. Slowly add whisked eggs while stirring pot. Let boil 2-3 mins.

*My mom likes to boil the chicken with some onion because it tames that not so great smell of boiled chicken.


This is definitely my favorite healthy-ish soup. When I order it at restaurants, it just doesn’t hit the spot so I prefer the homemade version. I wonder how this would taste if the chicken were substituted with tofu. Do let me know if you try it out!
