Chicken Corn Soup Recipe With Rivels

3 1/2 pounds chicken, cut up in small chunks
3 quarts water
2 tsp. salt
1/4 tsp. saffron
2 cups whole kernel corn, fresh or frozen
1/4 tsp. pepper
1 tsp. parsley, minced 

Rivels:
1 1/2 cups flour
1 egg, slightly beaten
1 tsp. salt

Put chicken and water in a large, heavy, pot. Add salt and saffron. Bring to a boil, then simmer for 1 1/2 hours until chicken is tender. Remove chicken from stock, let it cool, then take meat from bones and cut or chop into small chunks. Discard skin and bones. Return meat to the stock and add corn, pepper and parsley. Mix egg and flour together until mixture becomes crumbly.

Bring soup to a boil and add the rivels. Cook until corn is tender, if fresh.

Makes about 10 servings.
