My family loves a comforting bowl of soup especially sweet corn based soups… We love it throughout the year. Even though we always place an order for soups when we dine at restaurants, I do prepare the restaurant style version in my very own kitchen. I make sure I am well stocked with tins of cream style sweet corn. Besides, sometimes I do make my own cream style sweet corn & use it . I also make & freeze chicken stock & vegetable stock as this comes in very handy when I want to prepare food & soup at very short notice.
We do love & enjoy a lot of vegetarian food but when it comes to a soup, a chicken soup always wins hands down! So if you like or love soup just try this one as you might want to make this often… Enjoy this wonderful & hearty Sweet Corn Chicken Soup… 😀
