  • 1 cup canned creamed corn
  • 2 teaspoons reduced salt soy sauce
  • Extra sliced spring onions, to serve, optional
  1. Place chicken in a large saucepan. Add water and bring to the boil. Reduce heat to low, then cover with a lid and simmer for 8 minutes. Remove pan from heat and set aside for 15 minutes. Drain and reserve liquid in a jug. Shred the chicken into small pieces.
  2. Cut the corn kernels from cobs.
  3. Heat the oil in the same large saucepan over a medium heat. Add onions, garlic and chilli. Cook, stirring for 2 minutes until onion is softened slightly. Add the corn kernels and cook, stirring for a further 3 minutes.
