Prep time: 20 minutes Cook time: 1 hour


  • 1 whole chicken, cut into pieces
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter, cold and cubed
  • 1 cup milk
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 onion, diced
  • 3 carrots, peeled and sliced
  • 3 celery stalks, sliced
  • 4 cloves garlic, minced
  • 6 cups chicken broth
  • 1 bay leaf
  • 1 teaspoon dried thyme
  • Salt and pepper, to taste
  • Fresh parsley, for garnish


  1. In a large pot, heat the olive oil over medium heat. Add the onion, carrots, celery, and garlic. Cook until the vegetables are tender, about 5 minutes.
  2. Add the chicken pieces to the pot and season with salt, pepper, and dried thyme. Cook until the chicken is browned on all sides.
  3. Pour in the chicken broth and add the bay leaf. Bring the mixture to a boil, then reduce the heat to low. Cover the pot and simmer for 30 minutes, or until the chicken is cooked through.
  4. While the chicken is cooking, prepare the dumplings. In a mixing bowl, combine the flour, baking powder, and salt. Cut in the cold butter using a pastry cutter or your fingers until the mixture resembles coarse crumbs.
  5. Gradually add the milk to the flour mixture, stirring
