Egg Drop Soup With Chicken and Corn


If you like the egg drop soup you get at a Chinese restaurant as a side to your lunch combo, you're going to go wild over this one. This is what Egg Drop Soup is supposed to be. Not just egg in water with a little cornstarch to thicken it up, but a soup with content that you can actually chew with your teeth. It's super easy to make and is very light and good!
