Instructions

To Make in the Instant Pot

  • Set Instant Pot in Saute mode. Once the timer is off and the sign says 'ON', add oil. 
  • When the oil is hot, add chopped onion. Cook for a couple of minutes until it has softened and looks translucent.
  • Stir in ginger and garlic. Saute for a minute, until the raw smell is gone.
  • Pour in Chicken Stock. Season with salt. Add Chicken Breast to the pot.
  • Close the lid. Set to 'Manual Mode' and 6 minutes.  Put the vent to sealing position.  Let it cook on high pressure for 6 minutes.

  • Remove cooked chicken using a spatula and keep aside covered. 
  • Set Instant Pot to saute mode again. Add corn kernel and Creamed Corn. Stir well
  • Mix cornstarch and water. Stir gradually to the soup using a slotted spoon. Let it come to a boil. At this point, the soup will start to thicken.
  • Beat egg using a fork. Stir slowly to the soup in two parts. While pouring the egg using one hand, keep stirring the soup slowly and continuously with a fork in another hand.
  • Let the soup get cooked for a minute.
  • Meanwhile, shred chicken using two forks. Add shredded chicken to the pot. Followed by Soy Sauce. Mix everything well.
