This looks like a great soup and it is on my list to make, but I have a quibble--I grew up in Lancaster Co., PA, where the Amish still ride the roads in their buggies and this is not Amish Chicken Corn soup--as M.J. pointed out, the Amish would not start with boneless skinless chicken (they would use a left over roast chicken carcass); nor would they use creamed corn or noodles. True chicken corn soup has only corn in it as a starch (no noodles or potatoes), but the secret ingredient (as I learned in Home Ec and observed at many Fire Company dinners) is hard-boiled egg that has the white chopped and added to the soup and the yolks are mashed with broth from the soup to form kind of a slurry and added at the end.

Great soup!!!! I cooked it in my crock pot on low for 8 hours. Dinner was ready when I got home and the house smelled terrific. I added cooked noodles the last half hour of cooking and because I am MSG intolerant, I used 3 Tablespoons of Better than Bouillon Chicken base which has no MSG; instead of the bouillon cubes which do. My Jewish friends call this soup " Jewish Penicillin" and they thought it was especially good. I have a lot frozen in 1 1/2 cup bags to reheat during flu season this year.

Good soup! I used 8 cups of chicken broth, four cups of water and a teaspoon of chicken bouillon because that's what I had on hand. My husband, who loves the Amish chicken corn chowder served in Pennsylvania, said it needed more corn.

Do the noodles get soft and mushy after freezing?

My husband LOVES this soup, but I alter it. I think 12 cups of water is too much. I add chicken broth instead - about half as much.

I never cook and I was able to make this quickly and it was fantastic. I would substitue the second can of creamed corn for a bag of frozen corn though. It was a bit too thick and sweet for my taste. But an excellent and esay recipe to follow!

Gracie T-a Dutch oven is the big 'soup pot' that often comes with a set of pans. We make soup and chili in it--or cook a roast or chicken on the stove top.

Tastes like my grandma's chicken soup. One of my cold weather go-tos.

What is a Dutch oven, please? I only have an ordinary electric oven.
