Add enough water to make soft (about 1 Cup), and roll out. Cut into squares. Remove chicken and take meat from bones. Return meat to water it had boilet in along with chicken seasoning. Bring to a boil. Add dough squares one by one. Simmer until dough settles with white gravy. Never still while simmering, but do twist pan horizontally on stove occasionally.
