Chicken Bott Boi

(1 Votes)
1 Hr 30 Min

Yes, Bott Boi is the real name for this traditional Pennsylvania Dutch dish. Because it's actually dressed-up bow-tie pasta and chunky veggies, we call it a great meal, too!

What You'll Need:
  • 10 cups water
  • 1 chicken (3 to 3 1/2 pounds), cut into 8 pieces
  • 1 large onion, cut into 1-inch chunks
  • 2 celery stalks, cut into 1/2-inch chunks
  • 1 tablespoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon black pepper
  • 7 potatoes, peeled and cut in half
  • 12 ounces bow tie pasta
What To Do:
  1. In an 8-quart soup pot over medium-high heat, combine water, chicken, onion, celery, salt, and pepper; bring to a boil. Cover, reduce heat to medium-low, and cook 50 minutes.
  2. Remove chicken to a platter, then add potatoes to pot and cook 10 minutes.
  3. Meanwhile, bone chicken, discarding bones and skin, and cut chicken into bite-sized pieces.
  4. Add pasta to pot and cook 8 to 10 minutes, or until pasta is tender. Return chicken to pot and continue cooking until heated through. Serve in bowls.
