    This is my favourite chicken and corn soup recipe. It's a little more difficult to make than other recipes, but it's worth it!

    1. Melt butter and oil in large saucepan (not frypan) or pot over high heat
    2. Cook chicken in batches until lightly golden and just cooked through
    3. Place chicken in bowl, cover and refrigerate until needed
    4. Reduce heat to medium
    5. Stir in garlic, leek, celery, bay leaf, thyme
    6. Cook until leek softens but do not allow garlic to burn (tip reduce heat to medium low instead of medium and cover saucepan with lid to help leek soften and avoid burning garlic)
    7. Add the stock, wine and 1½-2 cups of hot water (freshly boiled) and stir
    8. Scrape up any sediment stuck to bottom of pan during stiring
    9. Add corn and potato and bring to boil
    10. Reduce heat and simmer for 1-1½ hours skimming any ‘scum’ off the surface during this time
    11. Cool to eating temperature
    12. Remove bay leaf and puree soup in blender (tip do this in batches, stirring blends together as you go – it makes a more consistent creamier soup)
    13. Return soup to CLEAN saucepan/pot on low heat
    14. Stir through cream and chicken
    15. Heat until heated through but do not boil (simmering is OK, but try and avoid as it can spoil the flavour or ruin the consistency).
    16. Drizzle with extra cream and garnish with chives to serve

    Something else. To give the soup a bit more texture, take a spoonful or two of your mixture into your clean pan before blending the rest, I also shredded the chicken. However try it both ways and make your own mind up on what you prefere.  -  07 Dec 2010  (Review from Allrecipes UK & Ireland)
