Recipe from Game Day Sweet Baby Rays

Homemade Chicken and Dumplings

4 tablespoons butter divided
2 carrots diced small
2 stalks celery plus their
leaves diced
1 onion diced
1 1/4 cup all-purpose flour 
4 cups chicken stock/broth
1 cup whole milk divided
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon baking powder
1 teaspoon fresh thyme leaves or
1/2 teaspoon dried, plus more for garnish
2 cups cooked diced or shredded
extra salt and pepper
  • 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).
  • Add 1/4 cup flour, stir to coat.
  • Add chicken broth (4 cups) and bring to a boil.
  • Turn the heat down to simmer and add 1/2 cup milk and the chicken. Season with salt and pepper.
  • Meanwhile, to make the dumplings, mix together the remaining 1 cup of flour, 1 teaspoon salt, 1 teaspoon baking powder, and 1 teaspoon 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. Do NOT over mix, or your dumplings may be dense.
  • Add spoonfuls of the dumpling mixture to the simmering pot- I recommend using a small cookie scooper (or tablespoon)
  • Cover and simmer on low for 15 minutes, or until dumplings are fluffy, cooked, and float to the top. No peeking!
  • Serve garnished with extra fresh thyme and fresh ground pepper, if desired
