Recipe For Chicken and Dumplings

Preparation Time: 1 Hour 30 Minutes


  • 2 lbs chicken thighs, bone-in and skin-on
  • 1 cup diced carrots
  • 1 cup diced celery
  • 1 large onion, diced
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 6 cups chicken broth
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter
  • 1 cup milk
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • Fresh parsley, for garnish


  1. Start by seasoning the chicken thighs with salt and pepper. In a large pot, sear them on each side until golden brown, then remove and set aside.
  2. In the same pot, add the diced carrots, celery, onion, and minced garlic. Sauté until the vegetables are tender.
  3. Return the chicken to the pot and add the chicken broth. Let it simmer for about 30 minutes until the chicken is cooked through.
  4. While the chicken is simmering, prepare the dumplings by mixing the flour, butter, and milk. Knead until you form a soft dough.
  5. Tear off small pieces of dough and drop them into the simmering pot. Cook for another 10-15 minutes until the dumplings are cooked through.
  6. Serve the Chicken and Dumplings garnished with fresh parsley.
