DirectionsPut flour in a bowl and slowly add beaten eggs, chicken broth, oil, and salt into center, mixing it into the flour with a fork. Keep mixing until it forms a ball. Knead dough in the bowl a couple of times to form a nice soft ball. Dough shouldn’t be sticky. Add more flour if needed. Refrigerate dough for a couple of hours.Divide the dough in half. Spread a newspaper on the counter, flour the paper and roll the dough on the paper until it is very thin. With a knife, cut the dough into strips about 1 inch wide. Then cut the strips into ~5 inch pieces. Let the dumplings sit for a while (10-15 minutes) to dry. Repeat with second half of doughRemove skin and bones from cooling chicken and discard. Tear chicken into bite sized pieces using two forks and set aside until ready to add back to pot.Bring broth to simmer.
