Method

Season the breasts on both sides with Chilli & Garlic or Green Onion Seasoning and dip into cornflour.

Preheat a medium size heavy based saucepan. Add one tablespoon of oil and brown the breasts lightly on both sides, don’t cook them right through. Remove and keep on the side. Add a little more oil, if needed, and brown the onion seasoned with Green Onion Seasoning. Add and stir through the ginger.

Add the boiling water, Chicken Stock and sweetcorn. Simmer for 5 minutes. Slice the chicken into fine strips across the grain and add to the soup. Simmer very gently for another 3 – 5 minutes. Taste for seasoning.

Add the sliced spring onions. Serve in soup bowls.
