"This is a heartier version (whole wheat dumplings) to a down-home Southern comfort food. Delicious and easy, sticks to the ribs, and keeps you full for a while. We enjoy having strawberry shortcake for dessert with this meal!"

  1. Place the chicken breasts into a large soup pot, cover with water, and sprinkle in the salt, black pepper, and sage. Bring to a boil over medium heat, then reduce heat and simmer until the chicken is no longer pink inside, about 30 minutes. Remove the chicken to a bowl, and let cool; shred chicken when cooled.
  2. While chicken is cooling, bring the chicken broth left in the pot back to a boil over medium heat, and stir in the celery, onion powder, and garlic powder. Reduce heat to a simmer, and cook until the celery is tender, about 20 minutes.
  3. Meanwhile, whisk 1 cup of all-purpose flour, the whole wheat flour, salt, and baking powder together in a mixing bowl. Stir in the cream to make a dough. Sprinkle a work surface with the remaining 1/4 cup of flour, and roll the dough out about 1/4-inch thick. Using a pizza cutter, cut the dough into 1 1/2 inch squares. Toss the dumplings in the flour on the work surface.
  4. Drop the dumplings, a few at a time, into the simmering broth. Stir frequently to keep them from sticking to the bottom; allow to simmer until the dumplings puff up and the broth thickens, about 30 minutes; stir in the cooked shredded chicken and parsley. Bring back to a boil, and serve hot in bowls.

This was delicious. We ended up almost doubling the amount of water, and it was still very thick. I recommend using bone-in chicken as the stock was fantastic. The celery could also use a shorter cook time. Thanks for posting!

This was delicious. Use extra water or this recipe becomes very thick after all of that simmering. I also cut up 3 medium carrots and added them to the celery. Yum!

This was a great template for the dish overall. I changed the proportions, especially the liquid- I thought it needed about twice as much and I used stock rather than water. I also used half & half rather than heavy cream because it's what I had on hand. This makes A LOT of dumplings, which is fine by me, but it should be noted that this would serve more than 6 people; perhaps ten The flavor was very good and I'm happy there were no added oils.
