Gluten Free Chicken & Dumplings is celery, carrots, potatoes, and onions mixed with the savory flavors of turmeric, thyme, and garlic, and topped with gluten free dumplings. It's the perfect homemade southern comfort food dinner!
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).
Remove chicken and set aside. When cool enough to handle, cut into small pieces.
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.
Add chicken, carrots, potatoes, peas, bay leaves, and stock. Stir all ingredients together. Bring to a boil and reduce to a simmer, stirring occasionally.
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.
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.
Add 2-inch scoops of batter to dutch oven, resting on top, spacing evenly in the pot.
Reduce heat to low and cover pot. Cook an additional 15-20 minutes, or until dumplings are cooked through.
