Here’s what goes in the soup: (and below this list I’ve written more or less the quantities of each ingredient we used when Nobis and I made the soup a few days ago .)
Chicken breasts, onion, garlic, creamed style tinned sweet corn and frozen sweet corn, salt, pepper, coriander seeds, lemon grass(if you can find) otherwise you can use a lemon, chicken stock and boiled water. Celery is optional but not too much as it might be overpowering.
1kg chicken breasts
2 large onions (chopped into small pieces)
4 cloves of garlic (cut into small pieces, not crushed)
3 cans Cream Style tinned Sweet Corn
1kg bag frozen Sweet Corn
Salt and pepper to taste
3 tablespoons chicken stock
1 large handful coriander seeds (whole seeds which you crush)
Some chopped celery
1 medium lemon
This is how we made it:
Put some chicken stock or chicken spice on the chicken breasts. Fry the chicken breasts in butter on low heat. When the chicken is about 90% cooked, cool them and then shred the chicken meat with a fork. Remember not to ever throw any of your flavour away!
Fry the onions in butter in your soup pot. Add your garlic and some water. Add all your other ingredients. Add water to your preferred consistency. Allow to simmer for about 40mins.
