DIRECTIONS

  • Cook chicken until tender with enough salted water to cover well throughout the cooking.
  • While the chicken is cooking prepare the noodles.
  • Blend the butter with the flower.
  • add the salt and the eggs, and just enough tablespoons of milk to make a very stiff dough, like pie pastry.
  • Roll out as thinly as possible on a floured board and let stand for at least half an hour.
  • Cut into 1 1/2-inch squares with a knife then.
  • When the chicken is tender put a layer of the potatoes into the bottom of a large kettle, then a layer of the noodle-dumplings.
  • Then one of the carrots and peas; sprinkle with salt, pepper and parsley; then a layer of chicken, then repeat until all the vegetables and chicken have been put in--the top layer to be noodles.
  • Pour the boiling chicken broth over all.
  • Cover tightly and don't uncover for 20 minutes while the pot pie simmers.
  • Pour it all into a beautiful bowl and it will be fit for serving a queen--but what queen would ever be lucky enough to get this humble Old Mennonite dish?
