Chicken Corn Soup Recipe

Pennsylvania Dutch Corn & Chicken Soup with Dumplings

This easy to make soup has big flavors and is a great way to use corn on the cob, or just frozen corn if you need to.  "Dumplings" mean different things in different areas of the world.  I love the frozen egg noodles you buy that are kind of fat - they are really closer to Pennsylvania Dutch "dumplings" than not - while in some areas a "dumpling" is a cloud of dough cooked on top of the soup.  You could probably do ANY kind of noodle, but in this case, we're talking about the frozen dumpling/egg noodle kind.
