Chicken & creamed sweet corn (Main dish) Video and written recipe

Chicken and sweet corn if often seen as just a soup/starter but there is often the main dish variation on most Chinese takeaway menus, well actually its kind of dying out as no one orders it, but it is one of the most underrated dishes out there. I loved this so much, that I had this in my lunch box 2-3 times a week when I was at school.
