Stir in the flour and remaining ingredients(including the chicken). Make sure the baby corn  is on top.
Cover and simmer gently over the coals for 1 hour until liquid has reduced to a saucy consistency and the veggies and chicken are tender.
Season to taste.

Tip of the day

 
Basic basil care
Basil wilts quickly, but will perk up when left in cool water for about 30 minutes. Then blot the leaves dry and store them at room temperature in a tightly sealed bag. If basil is stored in the refrigerator, it turns black.
