Chicken and Sliders Recipe
- 3 pounds whole chicken
- 2 onions, quartered
- 3 stalks celery, cut into 1 inch pieces
- 2 bay leaves
- salt and pepper to taste
- 1 egg
- 4 cups all-purpose flour
step 1: Wash chicken and place in large pot. Cover with water and add chopped vegetables, bay leaves, salt and pepper. Bring to a boil, then reduce heat and simmer for about 2 hours or until meat comes away easily from the bone. Remove chicken from broth and strain liquid. Reserve the broth and discard all vegetables.
step 2: When chicken is cool remove meat from the bones and all skin, keeping the chicken meat in reasonably large pieces.
step 3: To make the noodles(sliders): Beat the egg with some of the cooled broth, measure out the flour, work the egg mixture into the flour adding broth as required until the dough forms a ball. Knead the ball for a few minutes. Roll out the dough on a floured surface. Cut the dough into strips about 1 1/2 inches wide and 3 inches long. Don't worry if they are irregular in shape. Leave any excess flour on the noodles.
step 4: Bring the reserved broth to a rapid boil, add the noodles and let them boil for about 5 minutes. Reduce heat, add cut up chicken and simmer until the broth is very thick like gravy (add a little flour to thicken if required). Add salt and pepper to taste.
