Easy to make in an Instant Pot

This Chicken soup is very versatile - it is refreshing when the temperature is hot and warming when it is cold. Plus it is a very light soup so you do not feel as heavy as when you eat a chowder or other thick soup.

This dish really is a must-try.

I love corn - and see what is the best way to reheat corn on the cob.

Key Spices and Flavors for Chicken Corn Lime Soup

Lemongrass Chicken

Lemongrass is commonly used all through Asia - but it is most common in Southeast Asia.  Thailand, Indonesia, and Vietnam employ it in their cuisines. for making dishes like Tom Yum Goong, Beef Rendang, and Laksa to name but a few.

Chilli

Chilli is a key ingredient and you can use only a little and it will make a huge difference to the overall taste. My message to you if you are afraid - does not be - just use a very small amount to start with - you will soon learn just how much you need. 

Ginger

Ginger is another key ingredient, just like chili - use a little at first, but do use it because you will notice a difference. Even if you do not actually taste the ginger directly - it actually influences and enhances the overall flavor of the dish.

I really find these small white bowls great - they are easy to use and wash up afterward and are pretty well priced online.

We also have a great Risotto recipe here.

This really is a refreshing soup and garnish it with what we suggest - or just what you have - send us some pictures and we will put them on our website and Facebook!
