Curried Corn and Chicken Soup



From the kitchen of One Perfect Bite...This soup is substantial without being heavy and if you enjoy a mild curry flavor, it's the perfect choice for a quick weeknight meal. This is basically a pantry soup made from ingredients that can be found in any well-stocked kitchen. It is lighter than a chowder but it can be made more substantial with the addition of cooked rice or diced potatoes. I use frozen corn to make this. I've found that frozen shoepeg corn is perfect for soups and most casserole dishes that use corn as an ingredient. You can find it in the frozen food aisle of any large grocery store. Shoepeg is a variety of white sweetcorn that is grown for its sweet mild flavor. It has small, narrow kernels that are tightly and unevenly packed on the cob. The corn got its name because the individual kernels look like the wooden shoepegs that were once used to attach soles to the bottom of a shoe. It really is tender and quite tasty. This is a very straightforward recipe and the soup is easy to make. I think those of you who try it will enjoy it. Here's the recipe.


Curried Corn and Chicken Soup
...from the kitchen of One Perfect Bite inspired by Healthy Cooking magazine

Ingredients:
2 medium onions, chopped
2 celery ribs, chopped
1 tablespoon butter
3 cans (14-1/2 ounces each) reduced-sodium chicken broth
5 cups frozen corn
2 teaspoons curry powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon pepper
Dash cayenne pepper
1/2 cup all-purpose flour
1/2 cup 2% milk
3 cups cubed cooked chicken breast
1/3 cup minced fresh cilantro

Directions:
1) Using a Dutch oven or large saucepan, saute onions and celery in butter until tender. Add curry powder and cook until fragrant. Stir in broth, corn, salt, pepper and cayenne. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat, cover, and simmer for 15 minutes.
2) Whisk flour and milk together in a small bowl until smooth. Whisk into soup. Bring to a boil and cook, stirring, until thickened, about 2 minutes. Add chicken and cilantro and cook to heat through. Yield: 9 servings (2-1/4 quarts).

Yum, I do love curry and I think it is a great flavor with corn. I am starting to feel like I need to make a pot of soup - this sounds like a great one!

The Blonde Duck said...

I'm so glad it's fall and I can make this!

Kim said...

As weird as it sounds, I never had a corn soup in my life. It would be the time to change it, don't you think?

Ryan said...

Now that its cooled off here, I am craving good soups for dinner and this looks delicious! So perfect for a fall evening!

StephenC said...

This I consider to be the ideal example of how to put together a soup. Let's face it, it could be constructed of so many disparate things one might find in the pantry, freezer or fridge.

San said...

Comforting soup for this chilly weather. Definitely healthy and balanced soup.

Patti said...

Thank you for stopping by Mary and leaving such a lovely comment! I've been bookmarking some of your "goodies"! Have a great day!

Clint said...

This looks fantastic. And I don't want no potatoes or rice in mine.

PeggyR said...

That looks very good. Have a great day.

From the Kitchen said...

I'm just catching up after a short trip to find you on a long trip. I hope the two of you are having a grand time!! The corn soup speaks to me and I'm off to copy the apple muffin recipe from yesterday. It's apple picking time in these parts.

Best,
Bonnie

Looks delicious and such a vibrant color!

Rosemary said...

Does indeed sound and look like the perfect pantry meal! (I just don't have fresh cilantro all the time!) But I do indulge in buying good curry and I'm delighted to learn about shoepeg corn -- never knew!

Rita said...

This smells so good! and love the colour. I have chicken soup in my slow cooker; I think I will add a bit of curry to surprise my man for lunch.
