  1. In a 6-quart stockpot, simmer chicken and half of the celery in the water for 1 hour or until chicken is tender.
  2. Remove meat from bones and set aside; discard bones.
  3. Add more water to the chicken broth to make about 3-1/2 quarts.

  6. Prepare bott boi: Whisk eggs and water together in a large bowl.
  7. Gradually add flour and continue to mix with a whisk until it begins to thicken, then switch to a wooden spoon and mix until a soft dough is formed.

  9. Divide the dough into 3 parts and roll each part on a floured wooden surface in a rectangular shape as thin as you can.
  10. Hint: Use a wet towel underneath the board to keep it from slipping around.
