Sophie Light, previous Head Cook at Esther’s Diner, and owner of Farmer’s Wife Diner in Ono, Pennsylvania shares her infamous Chicken Corn Rivel Soup Recipe with us.  There’s nothing better than homemade Chicken Corn Rivel Soup, made with Bell & Evans whole Chicken Legs… created at a time when the best chefs in the world developed recipes without using measuring cups.


Chicken Broth

  • 6 Bell & Evans whole Chicken Legs
  • 2 Cups Chopped onion
  • 1 Cup Chopped celery
  • ¼ Cup Chicken base
  • 4 Cups Frozen corn
  • 1 tsp Celery salt
  • 1 tsp Onion salt
  • 1 T Parsley flakes
  • Salt and Pepper to taste


  • 3 Large Eggs
  • 4 Cups Flour


  1. Cook the 6 chicken legs until tender. Remove from broth. Strain the broth, then add the chopped celery, onion, frozen corn and chicken base. Cook 5 minutes.
  2. Meanwhile, make the rivels. Beat the eggs, then gradually add the flour, working the flour into the eggs with your hands, making small chunks of dough.
  3. Slowly add the little chunks of dough to the broth, stirring frequently.
  4. Add cooked and shredded chicken, celery salt, onion salt and Parsley into soup.
  5. Serve with chunky, warm bread.
