This very quick and easy and very low-calorie chicken and egg soup is a fantastic winter warmer and only takes about 5-10 mins to make
I love food, so losing weight has been an on-going battle in my life for as long as I can remember. I therefore love putting together quick & easy recipes that can keep me on the straight & narrow while still allowing me to enjoy superb flavours & textures.
One great thing about winter is that it’s a perfect time to eat lots of soups, and I adore soups!
Try this chicken and egg soup and you’ll want to make it over and over again.
Ingredients – as a starter for 2 people or as a light meal for 1
Approx. 50 kcal per serving when made with Knorr Chicken Stockpot (refer to other manufacturers for calorie guidelines if using different stock cubes/stockpots)
- 500ml chicken stock (home-made or made with 1 Knorr Chicken Stockpot* and 500ml water)
- 1 large egg, white only
- 50g cooked/roasted chicken breast meat (you can buy this in most supermarkets, or use left-over chicken from your Sunday Roast or from making your home-made chicken stock)
Heat up the chicken stock (or make it with stockpots/cubes as directed by the brand you’re using for 500ml finished stock)
Add chicken, torn by hand into tiny pieces.
Take the white from one large egg, whisk lightly with a fork. Once the stock and chicken is boiling vigorously, start whisking it with a fork and gradually add the egg white, whisking it in with the fork as you go, so it forms tiny shreds of egg white in the stock.
Serve immediately – you can add some freshly chopped parsley at the point of serving, or other herbs of your choice (herbs I like with chicken are parsley, thyme, dill or tarragon).
Gloriously Quick, Gloriously Simple, Gloriously Good!
*You can use any brand of stock cube/stockpot, of course. I just like the Knorr Chicken Stockpots because I feel they taste as close to home-made as it gets without making the stock yourself and always have a few in the cupboard. This is purely my own opinion, though. My recipes are not sponsored or endorsed by Knorr in any way (I wish they were! I use enough of their stockpots in my cooking! lol)
