Method

  1. Place the chicken and stock in a large pan and bring to a simmer for 5 mins. Meanwhile, cook the noodles following pack instructions.
  2. Add the corn to the stock and cook for 2 mins. Stir the broth vigorously, then while it’s still swirling, hold a fork over the pan. Pour the eggs over the prongs in a slow stream. Stir again in the same direction then turn off the heat. Add a squeeze of lemon juice and the vinegar.
  3. Drain the noodles and divide between four bowls. Ladle over the egg drop broth, scatter with onions and serve.

This is a superb soup! For a starter, rather than a complete meal, I suggest using just the stock [from a cube and boiling water] chicken and dropped-egg. Absolutely superb.

(For reference, frozen pre-cooked chicken pieces and frozen baby sweetcorn makes this recipe so quick, easy and satisfying.)

Used leeks instead of spring onions. Very quick and tasty, will definitely make again!

This was a lovely recipe, well suited to the two sick little boys I served it to as it was light and completely non greasy. My only change was to add extra stock as I felt the amount stated did not make it 'soupy' enough. I had a hunk of cornbread stuffed with feta with it and it made a lovely supper dish.
