Soup Sunday-Chinese Corn and Chicken Soup

 Today we have a little different twist on chicken soup.  I used a combination of left over roast chicken and turkey.  This soup is really fast to put together.  The original recipe called for ginger, but I thought the five spice powder I used was more authentic. Feel free to variations

1 1/2 cups shredded chicken or turkey
2/3 cup finely chopped celery
4 tablespoons soy sauce
2 tablespoons Chinese rice wine
2 tablespoons corn starch
1/4 cup cold water
1 teaspoon sesame oil
4 cups chicken stock
2 ( 15 ounce) cans creamed corn
2 eggs, beaten
2 teaspoons five spice powder
chopped green onions for garnish
salt and pepper to taste

Place the stock in a stockpot. Heat over medium heat until it comes to a boil, then turn to a simmer.  While the stock is heating,  add the chicken and celery.  Combine the wine, soy sauce, water and corn starch.  Add once the soup is simmering.  Add the cream corn and bring back to a boil. Add the egg to the soup in a slow steady stream,  Cook 2 to 3 minutes to cook the eggs. Add the five spice powder.
