  • 3 TBS butter
  • 4 small carrots, peeled and diced small
  • 2 celery stalks, diced small
  • 1 yellow onion, diced small
  • 1/4 cup dried parsley
  • 3/4 tsp poultry seasoning
  • 1/2 tsp Black Pepper
  • 1/2 tsp Salt
  • 1/2 tsp Paprika
  • 1 (10 oz) can cream of celery, onion, or chicken
  • 2 cups cooked chicken cubed (rotisserie, baked, boiled)
  • 4-5 cups Chicken Broth


  • 2 cups All Purpose Flour
  • 4 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp Salt
  • 1/2 tsp Garlic Powder
  • 1 cup milk
  • 1/4 cup butter melted


  • In a large Dutch oven or pot melt butter over medium heat until it sizzles. Add diced onions, carrots, celery, parsley, salt, pepper, paprika and poultry seasoning. Stir and cook until vegetables are softened.
  • Add cream of soup, broth and cooked chicken. Stir and bring to a boil over high heat. After it comes to a boil, lower heat to "Low" and let simmer while making dumplings.
  • In a medium bowl, whisk together flour, baking powder, salt and garlic powder. In a measuring cup mix together melted butter and milk. Pour wet mixture into flour mixture and mix together with a fork until a dough ball forms.

  • This is delicious! I used pre-cooked white meat from the deli (already pulled off bone and available in a tub) so it took less than an hour to make this. Excellent flavor, easy to make a much loved dish!
