One 5-pound hen or chicken (makes about 4-pounds cooked, after bones and skin removed)
1 tablespoon salt
1 teaspoon pepper
2 cups unsifted all-purpose flour, plus more for dusting
Salt and pepper
You can also use canned chicken broth but homemade is always better! A hen is a mature chicken that has more fat, giving you a rich and flavorful stock. If you can't find one, a chicken will be delicious as well!
