Chinese Chicken Soup Thermomix Recipe

Published , Last Updated

This is a classic Chinese restaurant favourite. Chinese chicken soup is simple to make, healthy and delicious! Preparing the soup is quicker than calling for a takeaway and so much more satisfying. 

Chinese chicken soup is my daughter’s favourite winter dish at the moment, although she calls it chicken and sweetcorn soup. My husband started this father-daughter winter ritual a few years ago. They may only have it occasionally but I hate it. They go to the supermarket and buy a can of soup for their bonding meal. I am opposed to soup in a can for so many reasons!

Chicken sweetcorn soup from a can doesn’t even taste like chicken, corn or soup! It just tastes like artificial, tin flavoured, goop. Even the consistency is gross. A few weeks ago Anais wanted to buy the offending soup whilst we were shopping. I told her I would make her a proper Chinese Chicken Soup. She gave me the usual “roll of the eyes”, but let the argument go.

In all honesty, I haven’t made a Chinese chicken sweetcorn soup for years. I love the flavour of the soup, and how nourishing and homely, it tastes, but somehow I just don’t think to make it. It’s a shame because this is a super easy recipe which can be made on the stove top or in the Thermomix.

Anyway, I knew the recipe would need to be good to win Anais over. I was rather nervous when I put the completed bowl of Chinese chicken soup on the table for her. As soon as she sat down she smiled.

“Yum, it looks and smells amazing!” she said.

She tried the first mouthful and then got up to give me a big hug. “This is the best!” she said.

Brett arrived home and Anais was the first to greet him. “Dad, you’ve got to try mums chicken sweetcorn soup,” she said as soon as he stepped through the front door.

My husband is always being greeted in this manner so he made himself comfortable at the table and tried the soup. The verdict was unanimous! The toughest critics had tried my sweetcorn soup and given it a big “thumbs up.”

The rest of my family shares my food tastes (snobbery) and wouldn’t touch a can of soup if it was the last item in the pantry. So it was a foregone conclusion that a homemade Chinese chicken soup would be a winner.

Sweetcorn and Chicken Soup

    Thank you Julie, sounds delicious wondering how do I cream the corn

    1. Julie Carlyle says:

      Hi Carole
      Creamed corn is a canned product we get in Australia. To make the recipe without this product simply put 3/4 of the corn in the Thermomix prior to step one and blitz until it’s a puree.
      Happy cooking

  3. toby says:

    Hi, this recipe looks great! just to check, does the chicken go in the veroma or is it jsut the speed that is on veroma?

    1. Julie Carlyle says:

      Hi There 🙂
      The chicken goes in the bowl and the soup is cooked at Varoma temperature. I know it’s a little confusing. When we use the Varoma Dish I will always mention the Varoma dish or Varoma Tray.
      Happy Cooking

  8. Bernie says:

    Can i replace the creamed corn with steamed corn cob?

    1. Julie Carlyle says:

      Hi Bernie, you can replace the creamed corn with corn but it will be a clearer soup with a little less crunched corn flavour through the broth. Creamed corn is nicer in the soup.
