a ball. Form dough into a disc shape. Wrap in waxed
paper and refrigerate at least 30 minutes.

Stewed Chicken: In a 4 quart saucepan combine chicken,
celery leaves, tarragon, bay leaf, 1 ts salt and 1/4
ts pepper. Add cold water to cover. Bring to a boil
over high heat. Reduce heat. Cover and simmer for 45
minutes to one hour until chicken is very tender.
Remove chicken with tongs and cool. Strain broth and
refrigerate. When chicken is cool enough to handle,
discard skin and remove meat from bones. Cut meat in
pieces. Wrap and refrigerate.

Cream Sauce: Skim fat from top of cold broth. Measure
1/4 cup into medium saucepan, or melt butter. Add
onion and saute until transparent, 3-5 minutes. Stir
