Directions

  1. In a large Dutch oven, combine the first eight ingredients. Slowly bring to a boil over low heat. Cover and simmer for 45-60 minutes or until meat is tender, skimming the surface as foam rises.
  2. In a large bowl, combine the flour, parsley, baking powder, salt and nutmeg; stir in milk, egg and oil just until moistened.
  3. Drop batter by tablespoonfuls onto simmering broth. Cover and simmer for 12-15 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in a dumpling comes out clean (do not lift the cover while simmering). Remove the dumplings and chicken with a slotted spoon to a serving dish; keep warm.
  4. Strain broth, discarding vegetables and bay leaf; reserve 2 cups for gravy. (Remaining broth can be covered and refrigerated for up to 3 days or frozen for 4 to 6 months.)
  5. Place reserved broth in a small saucepan; bring to a boil. Combine the flour, water, salt and pepper until smooth; gradually stir into broth. Cook and stir over medium heat for 2 minutes or until thickened. Serve with chicken and dumplings. Yield: 4 servings.

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Jan. 24, 2010

"This tastes wonderful. I added a little thyme also in the beginning. I recommend not cutting the chicken up too small, it's too difficult to separate it from the vegetables and broth."
