For the Chicken & Vegetables
  • 8 cups chicken or vegetable stock
  • 4 stalks celery chopped
  • 3 medium carrots chopped
  • 2 lbs boneless skinless chicken breast
  • 2 medium yukon gold potatoes cut into 1-inch cubes
  • 2 medium bay leaves
  • 1 medium yellow onion chopped
  • 1 cup peas
  • 1/2 cup gluten free all purpose flour
  • 2 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp black pepper
  • 1 tsp dried thyme
  • 1 tsp garlic powder
  • 1/2 tsp turmeric
For the Dumplings
  • 2 cups gluten free all purpose flour
  • 3/4 cup buttermilk
  • 1 tbsp baking powder
  • 6 tbsp unsalted butter melted
  • 1 tsp dried thyme
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
  1. Add 2 tbsp olive oil to a large dutch oven over medium heat. Place chicken breast in dutch oven and cook until browned on each side (about 5-7 minutes on each side). 

  2. Remove chicken and set aside. When cool enough to handle, cut into small pieces. 

  3. Add remaining tbsp olive oil to dutch oven, along with onion, celery, salt, pepper, thyme, turmeric, and garlic. Cook until onions are soft, about 5 minutes. 

  4. Add chicken, carrots, potatoes, peas, bay leaves, and stock. Stir all ingredients together. Bring to a boil and reduce to a simmer, stirring occasionally. 

  5. In a small bowl whisk 1/2 cup gluten free all purpose flour with 1 cup of the cooking liquid. Add back into dutch oven. Simmer an additional 10-15 minutes, then remove bay leaves. 

  6. Meanwhile, in a separate bowl, combine gluten free flour, dried thyme, baking powder, and baking soda. Add butter and buttermilk. Stir until a thick batter is formed. 

  7. Add 2-inch scoops of batter to dutch oven, resting on top, spacing evenly in the pot. 

  8. Reduce heat to low and cover pot. Cook an additional 15-20 minutes, or until dumplings are cooked through.
