Chicken Corn Soup with Rivels Recipe

Traditional chicken soup gets an interesting twist from a dumpling-like broth-stretcher called rivels. Elissa Armbruster of Medford, New Jersey sent this light-on-fat recipe that's chock-full of chicken, vegetables and herbs. You won't be able to resist it. —Elissa Armbruster, Medford, New Jersey

"The broth and soup was only just okay. The rivels were strange, tough, and chewy. I expected them to be somewhat dumpling like, but after mixing the flour and egg, I was left with a very dry mixture. There was no way I was going to drop teaspoons of it into the soup so I rolled it out and cut it up small. They were awful. Maybe there is something missing from them...water? milk? less flour? I'm not sure what it was, but I did not like this recipe very much."

"This was VERY good. I really loved the tarragon flavor with the carrots (I added extra carrots). I just realized that I skipped the Parsley, but I liked it the way it was. Definitely easy (especially if you use leftover chicken) and yummy. I'll be making this again."
