Chicken Corn Soup

Chicken Corn Rivel SoupThis was another childhood staple: good ole chicken corn soup. Oh my! How I loved making those doughy balls with my grandmother and eating them before they were even in the soup! You can eliminate the doughy ‘rivels’ from the recipe (or substitute potatoes instead) and you’ll still end up with a delicious hearty soup.
