Amish Chicken Corn Soup Recipe

Cream corn and butter add richness to this homey chicken noodle soup. It makes a big batch, but it freezes well for future meals—one reason why soups are my favorite thing to make. —Beverly Hoffman, Sandy Lake, Pennsylvania
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 15 min. Cook: 40 min. YIELD:16 servings


  • 12 cups water

  • 3 chicken bouillon cubes
  • 2 cans (14-3/4 ounces each) cream-style corn
  • 2 cups uncooked egg noodles
  • 1/4 cup butter
  • 1 teaspoon salt

"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."

"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. Check this out--"

"this was good, i would make it again ... however, i changed a few things which i think actually enhancedthe recipe. i used low sodium chicken broth instead of just water, i sauteed the onions & celery before anything else then added the broth etc ... all in all, it was a good recipe and better with the few changes i made"
