  What’s Cooking?…Chicken and Sweetcorn Soup

This is one of my favorite, go to soups.  It is very quick and easy to prepare, it is delicious, proteinatious, low in fat and satisfying.  It has a  short list of ingredients.  I always like to keep one or two tins of sweetcorn in the pantry, just in case…..or for this recipe
