Ingredients

Instructions

  1. Saute the carrots, celery, and onions in 2 tablespoons of the butter in a large pot over medium high heat until browned and soft (about 3 minutes).
  2. Add 1/4 cup flour, stir to coat.
  3. Add chicken broth and bring to a boil.
  4. Turn the heat down to simmer and add 1/2 cup milk and the chicken. Season with salt and pepper.
  5. Meanwhile, to make the dumplings, mix together the remaining 1 cup of flour, 1 teaspoon salt, baking powder, and fresh thyme leaves. Stir in the remaining 2 tablespoons of butter, melted, until flour mixture is crumbly looking. Add the remaining 1/2 cup of milk and stir until just combined.
  6. Add spoonfuls of the dumpling mixture to the simmering pot- I recommend using a small cookie scoop for this.
  7. Cover and simmer for 15 minutes, or until dumplings are fluffy, cooked, and float to the top.
  8. Serve garnished with extra fresh thyme and fresh ground pepper, if desired.
