There are a lot of “iconic” Amish foods from shoofly pie to cinnamon rolls to apple pan dawdy. But there’s another one, especially in Lancaster County: chicken corn soup. This hearty soup combines veggie goodness with fresh chicken to make an amazingly wonderful meal. Add to some of the recipes traditional Amish rivels and you’ve got something even more amazing.
To give you an idea of just how iconic this recipe is among the Amish of Lancaster County, the Lancaster paper published no less than 10 recipes for it yesterday. Yes, 8 different recipes for “chicken corn soup.” But I am giving you 11, those recipes, plus The Amish Cook’s original recipe for it. So, here we go:
