- 3 1/2 lb Stewing Chicken
- 1 sm Carrot, scraped and diced
- 1 md Onion, peeled and chopped

Put chicken, carrot, onion, parsley, salt, pepper and 5 cups of water in a large kettle. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat and simmer, covered, for 2 hours, or unitl tender. The exact simmering time will depend on the age of the chicken. Remove chicken from kettle to cool.
Strain broth and reserve. Cut meat into shreds. Out the walnuts through a meat grinder twice. After each grinding reserve the oil separately from the nuts. Soak bread in some of the strained chicken broth until soft. Squeeze dry and mix with ground walnuts, onion and pepper.
Put this mixture through a meat grinder 2 more times. Then gradually add about 1 cup of the strained chicken broth to the mixture to make a paste or sort of mayonnaise-type sauce.
Combine 1/2 of this sauce with the shredded chicken and spread evenly on a platter. Cover with remaining sauce. Garnish with the reserved walnut oil by sprinkling it, along with the paprika, over the sauce.
