This is a hearty, indulgent winter warmer that will satisfy any comfort food craving. Spring onions and plenty of black pepper help balance the sweetness of the corn. Serve with crusty bread for a tasty lunch. A grating of cheddar wouldn't hurt! Use leftover cooked chicken, or poach chicken breasts first, then let rest and shred with a fork.
