  • Bring to a boil over med-high heat.
  • Decrease the heat to a simmer and cook for about 1 hour.
  • Add the butter, 1 teaspoon salt, and the pepper.
  • Meanwhile, combine the egg, 1 tablespoon water, the remaining ½ teaspoon salt, and the melted butter in a bowl.
  • Slowly add the flour, stirring until the mixture forms a ball.
  • Wrap the dough in plastic wrap and chill for 30 minutes.
  • Turn the chilled dough onto a lightly floured surface and knead a few times (add additional flour ot make the dough easy to handle).
  • Roll out to a 1/8-inch thickness and cut into strips 1 by 4 inches long.
  • Bring the chicken to a boil over med-high heat and slowly lower the strips of dough into the liquid (keeping the temperature at a boil will help prevent the dumplings from sticking together).
  • When all the dumplings are in the pot, decrease the heat to a simmer and cook, covered, for about 30 minutes.
  • Just before serving, stir in the heavy cream.
  • Sprinkle with salt and pepper to taste.
