Chinese Chicken and Egg Drop Soup

Try our version of egg drop soup, the traditional Asian dish of beaten eggs in hot chicken broth.


  • 1 900-mL carton low-sodium chicken broth

  • 1 398-mL can creamed corn

  • 1 egg

  • 2 tsp cornstarch

  • 2 tsp low-sodium soy sauce

  • 1 tsp rice vinegar

  • 2 cups shredded rotisserie chicken

  • 1 green onion, thinly sliced, optional


  • Combine broth and creamed corn in a medium pot over medium-high. Boil, then reduce heat to medium-low and simmer.

  • Beat egg in a small bowl. In another bowl, stir 1 tbsp water with cornstarch, soy sauce and rice vinegar until smooth. While stirring soup, gradually pour in egg in a steady stream. Stir in soy sauce mixture and chicken. Bring to boil, then remove from heat. Sprinkle on green onion, if desired.
