Chicken Corn Soup With Rivels

READY IN: 2hrs 10mins
Recipe by MarieRynr

This is an old Mennonite recipe that I have had for years. It is very tasty and comforting in those long cold winter months! Cook time is approximate, depending on how long it takes for your chicken to get tender, which of course depends on whether you use chicken pieces or an old hen!!

This is the closest i have come to my grandmother's chicken corn soup. It is so easy and tastes fantastic. I make this often for my husband, the world's most finicky eater.
