Chicken Corn Noodle soup with Amish style Noodles.

This Quick and Easy Chicken Corn Noodle soup is a recipe based off of my mother’s chicken corn noodle soup, which we enjoyed on cold winter days with only the heat of our wood stove in the house, while growing up Amish and then Mennonite. If you do not have access to Amish style noodles, you can add your favorite pasta to this chicken corn noodle soup. Cook the pasta of your choice until al-dente. This soup pairs well with homemade Amish honey bread, honey oatmeal dinner rolls or homemade garlic pretzel knots!

It almost never fails that this Amish chicken corn noodle soup gets doubted because it has noodles in it instead of rivels. The funny thing is, both my mom (who grew up Amish) and cousin (who is still with the old order Amish) had never even heard of rivels in chicken corn soup! There are many different groups within the Amish and different groups will have different food preferences etc. The Lancaster Amish I grew up in were very similar to the Amish featured in many popular movies and novels, but contrary to what the books and novels portray, we went to Walmart and similar grocery stores just like the “Englishers” do. We did have a few bulk food stores that we liked to shop at, but for the most part we would hire a driver with a minivan or 15 passenger van (we were only allowed to drive horse and buggies or ride on pedal scooters), and would head down the road to Walmart to do our weekly or bi-weekly grocery shopping. Although we had many rules to abide by while old order Amish, we thankfully didn’t follow any particular rules when it came to food.

  • Note 1. Carrots are optional and can be replaced with celery.
  • Note 2. You can use a 15 oz. canned corn for this. Drain before adding to soup.
