  • 1
    Bring stock, garlic, spring onion and ginger to the simmer over medium-high heat in a large saucepan. Add chicken, reduce heat to low and poach until just cooked through (10-12 minutes). Remove chicken, set aside until cool enough to handle, then coarsely shred and set aside. Increase heat to medium-high and bring stock to the simmer. Add corn and cook for 1 minute. Add noodles and gai lan, bring to the simmer and stir until gai lan is bright green (1-2 minutes). While stirring, add egg in a thin steady stream, return to the simmer and cook until just set (1 minute). Add chicken, season to taste and ladle into serving bowls.
