1Cut up chicken into parts or buy parts already broken up. This is prep. time.
2Boil chicken until almost fall of the bone tender.
3Pre-heat oven to 350 degrees. When chicken is done, remove from pot and place on non stick cookie sheet.
4Season chicken with either spices or barbeque sauce to taste. Put in oven for 30 minutes.
5In a mixing bowl put flour, egg, salt, pepper and stock from chicken water. Mix until doughy. I like using my hands for this part. Very theraputic!

7Add dough squares to boiling broth. When they float to the top, they are done.
