Chicken And Corn Soup With Fresh Herbs

Head straight on to the recipe for Chicken And Corn Soup ♥

Chicken And Corn Soup must be one of those recipes where everyone has a version that they make at home. Mine is really simple and not too fancy. But that is what it should be.

Engaging with people should always be done with consideration. I left a two word comment on a Facebook photograph as I felt that really said it all. Being a person of few words in a lot of instances this seemed OK to me, but it was not alright for the person involved whose picture I was commenting on. And boy did he let me know all about it. He didn’t send me a private message saying ‘hey, is that all you got?’, he left a note for me on a public forum where everyone could see it. I was really angry about the entire conversation and could not understand why. Here was a new blogger asking for comments on a Facebook post and I decided to share some more love by writing a few words on that, as well as reading his blog post and leaving a lengthier comment there. And he was rude! We have all at one stage in our blogging life been newbies. This is the reality of things. Everyone has to start from the beginning. I can remember being a new blogger and feeling amazed that people came and left comments on my posts. This was in the ‘old’ days, long before I started blogging here on WordPress. To this day, nearly 7 years on, I am still grateful for each and every comment I get, whether it be a one word statement or an entire paragraph. I know that commenting takes time and many people don’t have that time to spare. And, when you are in a syndication where swapping comments and likes and retweets etc. is what is expected of you, you really cannot expect more than what the photograph dictates. When I made my bone broth following the email instructions from my sister, she kind of dictated I make chicken and corn soup afterwards. Here I was going to listen to her as it seemed the best use for the meat on the chicken wings, and there is something so comforting about soup made with a decent stock, healthy chicken and crunchy pearls of corn.

If you make this from frozen broth you can add raw chicken wings when you add the ginger and simmer until the chicken is cooked. You can then remove the meat from the bone and add it back to the stock

  1. how right you are about the newbie experience, Tandy. I must admit, though, that when I was a rank beginner, I didn’t understand about blogger etiquette. I thought my work would speak for itself. Rather like – post it and they will come. Takes time, doesn’t it? And building up a network of similarly minded bloggers.

  2. That person sounds really bizarre! You certainly have no obligation to comment on people’s work… and sometimes a short response is all that seems needed? Sorry for that experience.. my experience with bloggers has been that most people have been so supportive and understanding and appreciative. But I’m sure there are some unusual folks in every line of work. Anyway- beautiful post as always! This soup looks right up my alley- healthy, comforting, and full of flavor!

  3. I made a version of this the other day using corn and chicken and used, pearl barley toa ssist with thickening. As to comments – well I am the same as you. I love a comment and I try to comment because I know the time and care it takes to get a post up and running. I love it when someone I have never heard of comments. I do sometimes wonder about some bloggers who beg you to follow them or subscribe or whatever and then never think that the kindness could be paid forward.

  4. 5 stars
    Tandy, that’s terrible, I guess he does not understand. But your chicken and corn soup looks wonderful, I bet this is delicious!!

  5. 5 stars
    That is just odd behaviour…bad behaviour, you don’t need that energy in your life. Meanwhile, chicken and corn soup is one of the ultimate comfort foods.
