Combine the chopped chicken, egg whites, lemon rind, nutmeg, parsley, salt, and pepper together in a bowl. Mix well and shape into 1 1/2-inch dumplings. Roll the dumplings in the flour. In the meantime, bring the broth t a gentle boil, then add the lemon juice. Add half the dumplings, spooning them in one at a time. Cover and simmer for 3 to 4 minutes. Remove the dumplings with a slotted spoon, place in a soup dish and keep warm while cooking the remaining dumplings. Serve 3 or 4 dumplings in a soup dish and cover with broth for each serving.
