Capital Cream Corn Soup From Left-Overs

A superb soup to fix when you don't think you have anything on hand to cook! Honestly much of this is sitting in your pantry. Slave is going to show you how to turn a budget stretcher into a gourmet hearty meal.

We started this off with one cooked chicken breast that was left over and in foil. Sometimes that is all you need to start the thoughts going. If you have to buy cans, both the cream corn and the mixed vegetables used here only cost 60 cents each. You could also use one 10oz can of cooked white meat chicken.

1 quart chicken broth (low salt kind)
1 can of generic creamed corn
1 can of generic mixed vegetables
1 cup left-over pork or chicken, scraped the breading off first then diced
2 eggs, lightly beaten
salt and pepper to taste
Herbes De Provence


slave does not care for the metallic taste that so often accompanies caned food. For this, drain the mixed vegetables well. In a medium bowl mix 2 tbs baking soda into 1 cup of cold water and stir well. Add the vegetables, stir and let sit for about 10 minutes.
Bring chicken broth and creamed corn to a boil in a pot. Stir to combine.

While that heats, scrape any breading or sauce from the left over meat. Dice into ½ inch pieces.

Add meat & the drained mixed veggies. Stir this well and reduce the heat down to a slight bubbling (simmer).

After the heat has dropped in the pan, break eggs in a small bowl and beat lightly.
While stirring the lightly simmering soup, pour a thin stream of the beaten eggs into the soup so it forms long strands. 


Add in salt and pepper to taste. Sprinkle just a touch of the Herbs De Provence (remember that less is more)
Cover and turn off the heat. Let pot sit for about 5 minutes before serving.

With the simple addition of a bread and something to drink you will have put together a fantastic tasting healthy meal that will warm your Master. slave paired this with the polenta chips. 

This is a perfect meal for the season. Your Master will also enjoy the fact that you pulled it together without much money.

So happy to offer this to my Master Indy.
