Combine chicken breasts, water, celery tops, and 2 teaspoons of the salt in a large saucepan; cover.

Shape into 18 small balls.
(Set remaining flour aside for making sauce).
Reheat chicken broth to boiling; add meat balls; cover.

Drain liquid from each and strain into a 4-cup measure; add more water if needed, to make 4 cups.
Keep carrots and peas hot for further use.
Melt butter or margarine in a large saucepan; blend in remaining 4 tablespoons flour; cook, stirring constantly, just until bubbly.
