For the Chicken and Broth:
In a Dutch oven, add the chicken.

Use your hands to mix everything until well incorporated. Roll into a thin piece.
Slice the dough into small pieces with a pizza cutter.
Add the dough strips into the Dutch oven with the broth.
Cook for a few minutes until soft.
Put the chicken pieces back into the pot and stir until just combined.
Remove the pot from the heat and cover it. Allow the mixture to rest for at least 10 minutes.
