A little Bit of Chicken and A little Bit of Corn



This recipe was definitely one with a lot of different flavors, and some combinations that I wasn't quite sure of to begin with.  This soup had some Asian or Japanese type flavoring combinations.  To be honest I really wasn't sure what to expect whenever I started making this recipe; in the end I was pleasantly surprised.  The reason I chose to make this soup is because I hadn't been to the grocery store in a while and I didn't really have a lot of items on hand.  This was one of the few recipes that I found where I had everything it called for.

I would think this soup would be good for an appetizer, since there really isn't a whole lot to it.  We had it as our main course; I just made some bread to go with it so it would be more filling.  I'm still debating whether I will make this recipe again; I think it's growing on me though. 

Here's the recipe if you would like to try it.  I know I've just talked this up so well that your mouth is watering, right???  Haha!  You have to work with what you've got from time to time, so that's what I did.
