Would a broken shell extractor for an AR-15 (.223) work in a Mini -14 (.223)?

why wouldn't it. all the extractor cares about is the caliber, not what weapon it is in.
If you are stuck in a pinch without one or other tools, you can let the weapon cool and deliberately jam a fired case up into the remains of the broken case, then extract 'normally'. Or by exerting rearward pressure on the bolt while striking the buttstock on the ground or bench.
